KUCHING (June 11): Viviana Lynner Nervyn, 18, did not expect to do well in her Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2020 examination, especially after schools nationwide were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The SMK Rosli Dhoby, Sibu student said like many of her fellow SPM candidates, she faced challenges in keeping up with her lessons through the home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) method.
Nevertheless, she adjusted to the situation and emerged with 8As and 2Cs.
“The PdPR method is difficult compared to face-to-face lessons, more so with the internet network in my area not being very good.
“To overcome the challenges, I made my own revision schedule and went through lessons on my own, and made sure I completed all the exercises given to us on time as well,” she said when contacted following the release of the SPM 2020 results online yesterday.
Viviana, who plans to further her studies in her field of interest, advised SPM 2021 candidates to persevere in their studies and to not let the difficulties and challenges posed by the pandemic discourage them.
“Make sure you complete all the tasks given by your teachers. Persevere and don’t be lazy to follow PdPR lessons even though you encounter difficulties in doing so,” she said.
