ACADEMICS > Lower Senior
(ages 13 to 15 years old)

OVERVIEW

Our Lower Senior is a progression from Primary school for students aged 13 to 15 years. Marking the beginning of Secondary school, covering Senior 1, Senior 2 and Senior 3, the curriculum emphasises on the Malaysian National curriculum (KSSM). As a registered DLP (Dual-Language Programme) school, Mathematics and Science subjects are taught in English language.

Students who complete their Senior 3 are prepared to sit for their Pentaksiran Tingkatan 3 (PT3) and are eligible to attempt the optional Secondary Checkpoint Test (U.K.).

PT3 & Secondary Checkpoint (UK)

In addition to students sitting for their Pentaksiran Tingkatan Tiga (PT3) examination at the end of their Secondary 3, Zenith students are eligible to attempt the optional Secondary Checkpoint Test (UK). The Secondary Checkpoint have been designed to assess learners at the end of their Lower Secondary school. Students attempting the Secondary Checkpoint will need to sit for three (3) subjects – English, Mathematics and Science.

The test papers are marked in UK and will provide parents & the school with an external international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report, giving the school detailed information and parents the extra trust & confidence in the performance of their child.

DUAL LANGUAGE PROGRAMME (DLP)

Under the DLP initiative by Ministry of Education (MoE) which was implemented back in 2016, Science and Mathematics related subjects will be taught in English language to all students.
