KUALA LUMPUR: The Higher Education Ministry has extended the application deadline for admission to tertiary education institutions via the Central University Admission Unit online portal UPUOnline from Apr 7 to April 17 (at 11.59pm).

The extension applies to Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) school leavers and those with equivalent qualifications seeking admission to public universities, Teacher Education Institutes, matriculation colleges, polytechnics, community colleges and skills training institutions.

The new deadline for candidates to purchase the unique ID number from Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) is April 16.

In a statement, its minister, Datuk Dr Noraini Ahmad said the decision was made based on consideration of SPM and STPM leavers, or those with equivalent qualifications, who have limited access to the internet during the ongoing Movement Control Order.

Noraini said the results of the applications are expected to be announced on June 3 for SPM leavers; and Aug 18 for STPM leavers, or those with equivalent qualifications.
