We don't have to abolish SPM and STPM, and adopt O-Level and A-Level. Every country has their own education system, even though some of them sound the same (e.g. O-Level and A-Level in Singapore and UK), they don't really follow the same syllabus. SPM and STPM have their own values, for example, the syllabus of our science subjects isn't any less compared to most of the other equivalent exams, most of the time we learn even more. However, we have too many redundant subjects, that should be abolished (You know what are those). Nontransparent marking and grading system is another reason why SPM loses its value, if transparency can be achieved (like A-Level which publishes threshold for each grade of every paper), there wouldn't be any problem with SPM.

Or abolish STPM and have everyone go through matric. By the way, STPM style of exam is a little outdated, as major pre-U programmes in the world have been changed into semester or modular style, all-in-one-shot type is slowly being replaced. Government is heading the right way in changing the STPM format, into modular/semester type.
