KUALA LUMPUR - Form Six College principals have been given autonomy to conduct the student recruitment process with immediate effect.
Announcing this, Education Minister, Fadhlina Sidek said the move would allow principals to make direct offers to potential students to continue their studies.
The students would not have to wait for an offer from the ministry as in previous years.
"The principals can find Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) school leavers who have not been given a place for higher studies without having to wait for an offer from the ministry," she said.
She said the granting of autonomy would also guarantee wider access for B40 students to continue their studies in Form Six.
