For just RM1, SPM 2020 candidates can now get one-to-one revision help anytime they need it. Video-based personal tutoring app AskBee, education NGO Teach For Malaysia and REAL Education Group have launched #SaveSPM2020 as a nationwide campaign to help SPM 2020 exam takers with revision through live, on-demand guidance from volunteer teachers and tertiary students.
The Chief Executive Officer of REAL Education Group, Dr. Goh Chee Leong said that #SaveSPM2020 initiative in order to help more students with exam revision during this crucial period.
“Last year was a challenging year for students, especially those in Form 5 as they could not attend school for months before sitting for a major exam. Teachers don’t have it easy either, as they now need to divide their time between two cohorts of Form 5 students.
“#SaveSPM2020 is one way we hope to bring relief to this stressful situation, and we see the potential that an innovative app like AskBee has in bridging the revision gap for SPM 2020 candidates,” he said.
Meanwhile, AskBee’s founder Jason Khong explains that the app was conceptualised during the first Movement Control Order (MCO) as a response to learn-from-home challenges faced by students and parents.
“Upon learning about the plight of SPM 2020 students, we decided to change our launch plans and open up the AskBee platform at this critical juncture for volunteer tutors to help with exam revision.
“Technology is just the enabler; the real heroes are the volunteers who invest their time to support SPM 2020 students,” he said.
