The Registration Slip will be available after the fees is paid. The candidates can download or print the Registration Slip at the registration page.

If the details in the Registration Slip are incorrect, candidates should inform the Malaysian Examinations Council by email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Step 4: On the Exam Day


Candidates are advised to arrive at the examination centre 30 minutes before the exam starts.

Candidates are required to show the original identity card or original passport and Registration Slip in the examination centre. Should they fail to do so, candidates are not allowed to sit for the examination.

Things to bring to the examination centre:

  • black pens and pencils
  • basic calculator (of a type approved by your examination board)
  • any additional equipment needed for your subject(s)

Candidates should be dressed appropriately. Non-compliance with a proper dress code may result in candidates being barred from taking the examination.

Handbags, handphones, cameras, radios, smart watches, voice recorders, any bluetooth-enabled electronic devices, explosives and flammable substances are barred from being taken into the examination hall.
