Members of the public will now be allowed to apply for the role of an invigilator for the upcoming Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2023 examination

According to the Ministry of Education's (MOE) Facebook post discussing the matter, the initiative comes after Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek announced that efforts to preserve the welfare of teachers have always been a concern of the ministry.

"Thus, for the first time, the appointment of public examination supervisors starting with the Malaysian Certificate of Education (SPM) examinations in 2023 has been opened to the public," stated the post.


According to the MOE's requirements, the category of applicants are divided into five different classifications

These divisions are:

— Category 1: Retired government employees (under the Education Service Officer scheme)
— Category 2: Students from public higher education institutions, private higher education institutions, teacher training institutes, and foundation or matriculation graduates
— Category 3: Teachers from state government religious secondary schools, private schools, and Mara Junior Science Institutions
— Category 4: Government contract workers or contractual employees
— Category 5: Non-government employees, retired government workers, and retired privater sectors workers

Allowances will be allotted to the volunteers according the number of days each person serves for the examination, with those on duty required only to invigilate the students

However, there are certain requirements in place for applicants who are intending to apply for this role. To potentially be chosen, applicants have to be:

1. A Malaysian citizen 
2. Have at least SPM qualifications or equivalent as recognised by the government
3. Age between 18 to 65 years old
4. Are on a break and completely available for the entire period of the SPM examination
5. Have no criminal record or court action against them
6. Possess their own means of transportation

Successful applications will be shortlisted and called for an interview session at their closest district education office.


Applications are now open and will officially close by 31 October

Those who do not receive a response a month after the application deadline will be considered unsuccessful.
