Menteri Kemajuan Luar Bandar dan Wilayah Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal

International Examination itu untuk membolehkan pelajar MRSM mengikuti pengajian

di universiti luar negara lebih awal.

"Sehingga kini sebanyak 13 MRSM telah melaksanakan program IGCSE dengan

MRSM Tun Abdul Razak di Pekan, Pahang merupakan perintis apabila melaksanakan

program itu pada 2011.

"Dengan pelaksanaan program ini kami harap dapat menghantar lebih ramai

anak-anak kita mengikuti pengajian dalam pelbagai bidang di luar negara,"

katanya kepada pemberita pada Majlis Berbuka Puasa Mara di MRSM Alor Gajah di

sini, hari ini.

Turut hadir Timbalan Menteri Kemajuan Luar Bandar dan Wilayah Datuk

MRSM-SIJIL 2 (AKHIR) ALOR GAJAH

Mohd Shafie berkata MRSM Kuala Kubu Baharu di Selangor dan MRSM Kuala

Kelawang di Negeri Sembilan akan melaksanakan program itu tahun depan.

Mengenai program IGCSE, beliau berkata pengajaran dan pembelajaran IGCSE

menekankan pembentukan kemahiran lisan dan praktikal serta mengambil pendekatan

penyelidikan penyelesaian masalah, aplikasi kemahiran ilmu dan pelaksanaan

projek secara individu juga berkumpulan.

Katanya program IGCSE diiktiraf peringkat antarabangsa sebagai setaraf

dengan British GLSE dan International GCE ''O'' Level Exams ditawarkan melalui

University of Cambridge International Examinations yang diguna pakai lebih

9,000 sekolah di lebih 160 negara.

"Saya percaya pelajar MRSM mampu ''adapt'' program ini dengan jayanya, pelajar

bukan sahaja perlu mahir aspek bahasa Inggeris malah perlu bersedia untuk

mempelajari bidang lain seperti sains dan tekonologi pada tahap tertinggi.

"Daripada sudut pengurusan pula, kami akan pastikan semua keperluan bagi

menjalankan program ini dipenuhi dalam semua MRSM. Kami tidak seharusnya

terburu-buru laksanakan program ini jika keperluannya tidak dapat kami penuhi,"

katanya.

Sementara itu Mohd Shafie berkata untuk memenuhi kehendak rakyat, tiga MRSM

baharu yang dibina dengan kos RM185 juta akan mula beroperasi tahun depan.

Beliau berkata tiga MRSM itu ialah MRSM Arau di Perlis, MRSM Sungai Besar di

Selangor dan MRSM Kuala Kangsar di Perak.
