Under the new format announced yesterday, each of the 11 grades – A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D and F – are given a subject grade value (SGV).
Public Services Department (PSD) director-general Datuk Seri Ismail Adam said that:
“The format for calculating the results and grade recognition of STPM is similar to that used in universities and matriculation programmes,”Well, that's for those interested in working with the civil service. :-)
Ismail said STPM candidates with passes in three subjects with Grade C and SGV of 2.0 and a Grade C pass in General Paper were eligible to be appointed to the civil service.
“Those who do not possess these results will not be considered for appointment for positions requiring STPM qualifications or its equivalent by the Government,” he said, adding that holders of STPM/HSC full certificate or STPM qualifications were still eligible for civil service appointments.
