The end of UPSR

Yesterday was the last day of UPSR examination for Standard 6 pupils around the country. In Parit Raja, there are several primary schools in the town which were also the centres for the national examination. On the last day, the pupils sat for the Maths and Science papers which ended at 1 pm. Nevertheless, they were not allowed to go home after that as they had to sit for an aptitude test after lunch. At 4 pm, the pupils were seen rushing out from the hall looking very relieved. Some were heard shouting 'Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! cry, indicating that they were free from the UPSR which has burdened them for many months.
