MIRI: Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) Chung Hua Miri performed well in the Ujian Peperiksaan Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) as expected, scoring a 61.69 pass rate.
This was a significant increase compared to the 60.8 per cent pass rate last year, said acting headmistress Tan Ai Chu.
“Our best subjects are Mathematics and English with an increase in the overall pass percentage,” she told The Borneo Post at the school yesterday.

Out of the number, 19 pupils scored 7As, 23 scored 6As, 20 scored 5As and 28 scored 4As.
