Also, though the API level reached 200 during public examinations, the examinations would still held as scheduled. As these examinations are considered as indoor activities. Thus, PT3 (October 12-15), SPM (November 2 to December 8), STAM and STPM would be held as normal although the schools are closed in future.

However, there is one condition. If the API level reach 500, these public examinations would be extended with future notice. At the same time, the government would announce the haze curfew.
