Bachelor Degree of Teaching Programme (PISMP) Opens for UEC Applicants—

Dong Jiao Zong Urges UEC Holders to Actively Apply


  1. The Ministry of Education will intake its Bachelor Degree of Teaching Programme (henceforth PISMP-UEC) 2020 candidates from UEC holders from March 23 to March 31. Dong Jiao Zong reckons that this programme is specially opened to UEC holders with SPM certificate. Therefore, interested candidates are urged to browse the official website of the Institute of Teacher Education Malaysia (http://ipgm.moe.edu.my/), and apply directly on March 23 online (https://pismp.moe.gov.my/). Applicants are advised not to purchase Application Code in Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) and fill up the form in the Unit Pengambilan Universiti (UPU). According to the requirements set forth by the Ministry of Education, UEC applicants should not exceed 20 years of age (on June 30, 2020) and get distinction in Bahasa Melayu and English, pass History in the SPM and earn three extinctions in the UEC.
  2. Ever since the MOE commences its intake for PISMP-UEC in February, Dong Jiao Zong has been keeping an eye closely to ensure if the government continues running the said programme during the political turbulence to assure its continuity. Therefore, with the formation of the new Cabinet and the signing in of the new Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, Jiao Zong had taken the initiative to remind Datuk Mah of the PISMP-UEC 2020 intake and beseeched him to see to the matter. Dong Jiao Zong is relieved to learn that the said intake for UEC holders will begin next week and thus herewith encourages interested UEC holders to apply actively to dedicate their bit to the advancement of Chinese education on this soil. Under the extant system, teachers with Bachelor degree can enjoy an extra RM2,300 in their starting salary, putting other government servant allowances together, the monthly salary for a fresh teacher is RM3,000.00, let alone enjoying the various welfare and benefits in the person of a government servant.
  3. Dong Jiao Zong understands that the PISMP-UEC has been opened since 2011, and 20 vacancies are allocated for Chinese teaching posts in Chinese vernacular school across the country. Attributed to various reasons, the vacancies unfortunately have never been filled totally. That said, Dong Jiao Zong hereby beseeches all MICSS, state members of Dong Zong and Chinese Schools Teacher Union to put more efforts in the propagation of this programme thus to encourage more UEC holders to teach in Chinese vernacular schools. Dong Jiao Zong will pay close attention to the UEC application matter; in case any difficulties arise in application, feel free to contact Jiao Zong (Email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
