Just wondering, how true is this? From where do you all draw your conclusions?
I would ask some further question:
harder, compare to what?. compare to A-Level or compare to some PhD program, or UPSR?
it's the same if we want to ask : is 1 cm longer?
longer compare to ?. if its compared to 1 nanometer, then it's long.
if it's compare to mile, then its not. if it compared to kilogram, than, it's nonsense.
Harder or not is quite a relative question. I think if it compare to SAT,(scholastic aptitutede test/scholastic assesment test/silly american test, or whatever that's related to american college entrance test), then i don't want to say it's hard. You can get 3A in A-level (somewhat equivalent to STPM, but not quite) and still can get poor result in SAT (me). It's a relative question.
So, my conclusion is, if you think it's hard, then STPM is hard...
if not, then, voila!. you can get 5A. Easy as Dell.
