KANGAR, July 10 – The Ministry of Education (MOE) is still detailing the proposal to provide a cost of living allowance for students and an allowance for senior assistants in Form Six as part of efforts to rebrand Form Six education in the country.

Minister Fadhlina Sidek said these details need to be finalised before the proposal is brought to the budget level and the Finance Ministry.

“So, among the initiatives we want to focus on is looking at their allowance aspects, the role played by the administration at the Form Six College level, and also a larger role to see how this educational opportunity for Form Six students can be expanded and its quality improved,” she said here on Tuesday.

The media reported that the MOE is considering providing a cost of living allowance for Form Six students to attract more students to join the programme.

Deputy Education Minister Wong Kah Woh was reported as saying that the MOE was also considering an allowance for senior assistants of Form Six and a higher per capita grant for Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) subjects.

Fadhlina said her ministry is confident that Form Six students have very good potential.
