I dont know what Malaysian consider good planning ?
Take for example the date for registration for PLKN 2008 second batch which had been fixed to be on 18th March 2008 while the date of the SPM result announcement was scheduled to be on 12th March 2008.
When I call the PLKN centre about 3 weeks ago they said they normally allow for 2 weeks gap between the two events to allow the students to made the necessary plan for their University application. So I had expected the result to be announced around 2nd march .
Does the govt officers think the children can make the important decision for their future within 4 days (less 2 days for the weekend and their unpredictable online university application system).
The government had ample time and resources to plan everything but why they just want to make life difficult for the public.
Some of the parents that I meet were annoyed with the short time made available for them to decide on their kids education plan . Their kids who was originally anxious to take part in the PLKN programme now felt they were not given a fair treatment by the two ministries responsible for fixing the dates.
