it was called Senior Cambridge, then School Certificate, then Malaysianised and called Malaysian Certificate of Education (MCE) after independance, before the final spm on conversion to the malay medium. The original Senior Cambridge School Certificate has since then morphed into the GCSE, or common known as "o" levels.........
