5 Important Things To Do After Getting Your SPM Results

after SPM results

You have worked hard. And now, it is the moment of truth:
It is time to collect your SPM results.

Most students would pick it up from their schools so that they could meet up with their friends again before they parted ways. (And to compare them.)

However, did you know you can view your results through other means? Here are 2 common ways that students use to see how they did in their exams:

Check Your SPM Online

With modern technology within our grasp, you no longer have to be physically present during the release of the SPM results. Some students choose to remotely check theirs online through the Kementerian Pendidikan Lembaga Peperiksaan website since it is fast and convenient.

Generally, the Ministry of Education will make the announcement a week before the release date. So, if you are someone who has just sat for your SPM, be sure to keep a lookout for that.

Once you have your transcript, remember to print out a physical copy of your results as well! This certification will come in handy when you apply for your university, scholarship, and other applications.

Check Your SPM In Person

Of course, the most common way to collect your SPM transcript is to get it from your school. Most students continue to go with this option because they get to reunite with their friends and teachers.

Generally, your SPM results will be released simultaneously at 10 a.m. However, a majority of the students arrive at the venue earlier to catch up with friends.

Even at this stage, we cannot stress enough that you must keep a physical copy of your results and make multiple copies for future use.

So now that your qualification is in your hands, what else do you need to do next?

What To Do After SPM #1: List Down Your Post-SPM Pathway Options

Choosing a pathway after SPM is not as simple as shopping for groceries. Aside from your results, you will also need to consider multiple factors before you even begin to search for a future route.

  1. Can you afford it? And if so, how far can you go with it?
  2. Do you have the funds to complete a degree at a local or foreign private university?

To help you begin your self-discovery, you can ask yourself these questions:

  1. “What subjects am I good at?”
  2. “What field of study am I interested in?”
  3. “Do I want to study this for a degree or just a diploma?”
  4. “Do I want to study locally or abroad after SPM?”

Then, you can look into the available career options and prospects of those fields of study based on your preferences. 

Once you have discussed this with your family, you can begin to look at your options as you explore your potential pathway after SPM.
