OVERVIEW

Targeted for learners aged 16 & 17 years old, Zenith offers the Malaysian National Curriculum (KSSM) as its core programme. As a DLP (Dual-Language Programme) school, Mathematics and Science related subjects are taught in English.

Though the removal of streaming in Malaysian schools has been announced, we are still offering Science related subjects as it’s the safest option for students to continue to their tertiary studies.

Students who complete their Senior 5 will be prepared for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and qualified Zenith students may choose to attempt the optional International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE, U.K.).

SPM & IGCSE (UK) Examinations

In addition to students sitting for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination at the end of their Secondary 5, qualified Zenith students are encouraged to sit for the IGCSE (UK) examinations as an additional qualification for them to embark on their tertiary education. It is one of world’s most accepted international qualification for entry into a Pre University programme. Many universities worldwide require a combination of Pre University and IGCSE qualification to meet their entry requirements.

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 our students.
