  28. 28. CONCLUSION:
  29. 29. • CONCLUSION: Personal View Birmingham University Advantage : • Before GCSE: their have to sit a tests according to students' interests - teachers will determine whether a student will sit GCSE at a high level or not. • BUT, in Malaysia, student compulsory to sit SPM test • GCSE first national test in UK - Poor students will only be allowed to sit “foundation level” test –C is the highest grade for them - excellent students will sit “higher level” • GCSE - students have been exposed with “course work/assignment” concept, BUT in Malaysia, we only focusing on “Examination” concept. So, Malaysia should change the system – to produce students with critical thinking
