KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 13 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Examinations Board has taken immediate action to rectify an error in the Year Six Aptitude Test in Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) this afternoon.
The Education Ministry, in a statement, said chief invigilators were told if "E" was given as the answers for questions 41 to 61, candidates had to be advised to mark "E' as the answers to the questions.
It said the assessment and examination sector of all state education departments were told to inform chief invigilators on the matter.
The problem arose as the answer sheet provided only A, B, C and D for pupils o mark their choice answers while the objective-type questions from 41 to 61 gave five answers to choose from, namely A, B, C, D and E, it added.
The ministry said the Aptitude Test would be marked manually (hand score) and would not affect the pupils' UPSR results and would not be printed in their results slip.
