As March swings into full gear, the day of reckoning for your efforts these past 2 years is also drawing close.
Now that the Ministry of Education (MOE) has confirmed that SPM 2018 results will be released on 14 March 2019, we know that your heart must be pumping with excitement (or fear). Either way, take a deep breath and collect your thoughts.
Here are a few ways you can check your SPM results when D-Day arrives.
#1. Check your SPM results online
With the help of the good ol’ internet, you can easily check your SPM results online through the Ministry of Education’s website (MOE).
Here’s what you need to do:
- Click here to access MOE’s Semakan Keputusan Peperiksaan website
- Key in your IC number (without spacing or “-”). Then, key in your Examination Number (Angka Giliran)
- Upon clicking on “Papar Keputusan”, the page will immediately display a summary of your SPM 2018 result (under Ringkasan Keputusan Peperiksaan table). But, if you want your full results, you will need to get it from your school or Jabatan Pendidikan Negara
It’s that simple! Don’t forget to print your results for reference.
#2. Get your results via SMS
If you are on the move (probably enjoying a well-deserved vacation somewhere), you can also check your SPM results through your mobile phone.
All you need is a mobile phone (duhh) and a working mobile phone account. To receive your SPM results via short message service (SMS), just type:
SPM <space> IC number <space> Examination Number (Angka Giliran) and send to 15888
An example would be: SPM 000101101234 AA123A012
Do note that this SMS service will only be active from 10am on 14 March 2019 until 6pm on 20 March 2019.
You will receive a short message shortly after sending the message. Be informed that the reply might take a while as the network may be congested. After all, there are thousands of students checking their results too!
*Standard text messaging rates apply.
#3. Get your results via the e-Lembaga Peperiksaan app
If you’re anxious and aren’t keen on going to school at 10am to collect your results, one alternative is to download the e-Lembaga Peperiksaan app via your mobile phone and key in your details to obtain your results.
However, at the time of writing, this method is only applicable for Android users only.
#4. Send someone to collect on your behalf
If you are unable to collect your results physically on your own, you can ask your parents, family members or even a representative (e.g. a friend) to collect on your behalf.
Just make sure you pass them your IC number for verification purposes.
#5. Head to school to collect your results (and for moral support!)
The best way to collect your results is to go back to your school on SPM results day and get them yourself. Nothing can beat meeting up with your band of brothers and sisters, sharing tears of joy or disappointment (hopefully not!) and getting invaluable advice from your teachers and counsellors.
Your SPM results will be released at 10am, so make sure you’re there slightly earlier. Your school administrators will probably set up a few tables at the general area to cater to the crowd of post-SPM students and their family members. Alternatively, you can check with your school administrator’s office too.
Going to school is also great since you’ll get the chance to get your relevant documents certified so that you won’t suffer from panic attacks by doing it at the last minute. Some of the documents that you may need to certify are:
- Records or certificates of participation in co-curricular activities
- Certificates of achievement / excellence
- SPM Qualification result / certificate
- Birth Certificate
Do make copies, since you may need them for college applications, and when applying for scholarships and financial aid.
But what if you are a private candidate?
Don’t fret. Your results will be posted to you, though it may take some time for it to arrive via snail mail. Otherwise, you can also obtain your results from your state education departments (Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri) through the phone.
Whichever method you choose, make sure you return to school again to obtain your official SPM certificate, which will be issued at a later date. Do remember to make copies of it and get them verified. They will come in handy for your scholarship / financial aid applications later.
Wishing you all the best!
