The KSSM curriculum optimized

Beaconhouse School Systems being a world-wide provider of education has incorporated the National Secondary Educational curriculum into local Beaconhouse schools to address the needs of the academia of Malaysian students, and to accomplish and meet the challenges of a rapidly globalizing world. The new KSSM (Secondary School Curriculum ) prepares students in the secondary school from Form 1 till Form 5.After completing 3 years in secondary school , in Form 3 , students  have to completethe PBS (School Based Assessments)and PT3 examinations.   In Upper secondary , in Form 4 and Form 5 , students are given the option to take different subject disciplines related to the Pure Sciences, Commerceand Business subjects or  Humanities based subjects. Students sit for the SPM ( Malaysian Certificate of Education) exams at end of Form 5.   The PT3 and SPM (equivalent of Cambridge OLevel ), are public examinations conducted by the Malaysian Examination Syndicate. Although the medium of instruction is primarily in Bahasa Malaysia, English is taught using the 1119 Cambridge O Level Curriculum. All non-KSSM subjects and school based activities are conducted in the English language.   Although Science and Maths is part of the KSSM , additional periods will be allotted for these 2 subjects to be taught in English using textbooks from Cambridge endorsed  publishers.
