This past year has been incredibly taxing on SPM students.
The major secondary school exam which is usually held at the end of every year, has been pushed to the 22nd of February. With school closures in the past months and the Movement Control Order (MCO) restrictions, it has been difficult for students nationwide, to prepare for this major exam.
SPMflix, Malaysia’s largest and most comprehensive FREE SPM education portal, has been a great support to these students.
This past year, over 70,000 SPM candidates had signed up for SPMflix.com, a BAC Education initiative.
This online portal allows students to revise and learn through live-stream classes and even take quizzes to prepare for their examinations, at no cost.
Here are five ways how SPMflix can help in getting you those A’s:
1. Insightful Videos and Tanya Cikgu
Signing up for SPMflix grants students access to over 8,700 free videos which are constantly updated.
These videos are your personalised classrooms. Instead of having to keep up during live lessons, you can learn at your own pace.
Tanya Cikgu on SPMflix allows students to send their queries through WhatsApp. Experienced teachers will then personally answer your queries, ensuring all your doubts are cleared.
2. Revise with comprehensive e-notes and books
With SPMflix, you need not spend lots of money on revision books.
All resources are available on the portal for free, allowing students to access them at any time. These resources that come with handy short notes and Frequently Tested Questions are designed to ensure easy comprehensibility. Together with the videos available, students are able to grasp complex topics and subjects on their own.
3. SPM Seminar
This highly sought after seminar is a highlight of SPMflix and its features.
The annual SPM Seminar includes live online classes covering exam areas, tips and answering techniques for all 12 subjects in both the English and Malay mediums.
In 2020, to comply with safety measures and SOPs, the live seminars were held on Zoom from October to January. Seminar teachers intricately go through the subject matters to ensure that by the end of it, you are equipped with the knowledge necessary to score your straight A’s.
If you’ve missed the seminar, fret not! As long as you have signed up, you will be able to access recordings of these classes in the future whilst completing revisions. To better prepare you for the exams, the SPM Seminar also includes soft skills sessions on study skills, memory skills and mind-mapping to further enhance your performance.
4. Stay in the loop with Daily Tips
SPMflix also offers a Daily Tips feature which provides insights to students on how to score for SPM.
Experienced teachers share their tips and tricks on SPMflix’s telegram channel to help you tackle these specific difficulties. These tips could even be helpful to further improve on areas you are already well-versed in.
When you’re done revising for the day and have completed all your tasks, you could go through the top picks segment by SPMflix’s editors to see if you’ve missed out on anything. By doing this, you may pick up on information that could be invaluable to your exams.
5. Curate your own curriculum
In this new era of learning, SPMflix’s Virtual Learning Environment gives you the ability to self-direct your learning.
You can do so at your own pace, according to your preferred style and most importantly, you can study from anywhere- be it at home, at the park or perhaps even in a study group with friends.
This portal was specifically designed to ensure students are able to study effectively and score through their own respective methods. You should be the only director of your SPM journey. Especially at times like these when usual methods of revision and studying may require supplements
SPMflix has been helping students score not just through this pandemic, but for years.
However, with the current trend of digitalisation, BAC Education Group’s Managing Director, Raja Singham said he now wants to help solve the issue of internet accessibility amongst students from rural areas so they can also benefit from the portals.
“We want to focus on ensuring that students from the B40 and rural areas have adequate internet access to access the vast learning resources available online including SPMflix. Education is a means out of poverty.”
Raja Singham says that to ensure learning continues for all students, the focus of the government and Telcos should be to overcome the digital divide between urban and rural areas of the country.
GoodNews also caught up with Jennifer Low, BAC Learn’s CEO. We asked her about how it feels to create such an impact on young lives and what drove her to accomplish these endeavours.
“I was never a very good student. I hated school and I never understood why it was important to learn.
“Eventually, I got so left behind that I did not know how or where to start. Thankfully, I met a brilliant lecturer in my pre-university days who played a key role in putting me back on track,” she said.
She explained how her lecturer helped her realise that school wasn’t just about doing well academically but more importantly, to seek knowledge and improve oneself.
“Through SPMflix, I am privileged to pay this forward by playing a part in helping someone like the 16 year old me to grow and be better. You do not necessarily need to pay huge sums of money to learn. If you make it a point not to be complacent, I promise you — You WILL learn”, she added.
SPMflix is not your ordinary online learning platform. Its aim isn’t just to deliver classes and resources to SPM students, the end goal is to ensure quality education is accessible and comprehensible for all students, regardless whether urban or rural. Their free platform has helped SPM candidates all over in acing their examinations.
