THE Education Ministry would like to refer to “Glaring error in Biology paper” (The Star, Dec 24).
The ministry agrees that the biceps femoris and quadriceps femoris muscles in Diagram 4 of the SPM Biology Paper 2 were wrongly labelled. The ministry would like to apologise to SPM candidates for the error. The wrongly labelled parts were not related to the task.
The ministry would like to assure all SPM candidates who sat for the Biology paper that the wrongly labelled parts would not adversely affect candidates’ marks and overall grades.
