As we all know, yesterday the SPM students finally got their results and 9696 students passed with flying colours. However, among the rest were students who worked hard and tried their best, so they deserve some credit too!
Recently, a video posted to TikTok of a female student crying while getting her SPM results went viral after catching the attention of hundreds of thousands of locals.
In the video, a student can be seen crying uncontrollably in the hall as she receives her SPM results. She was sad that she did not get even a single A in her SPM. What caught out attention was her mother who was standing next to her and comforting her.
In the text written in the video, her mother said that the student was crying the whole time since they went home but the mother still congratulated her and said that A is not everything, your hard work and effort are more important.

In a follow-up video, the mother captioned it saying that her daughter is friendly and hardworking but slightly weak when it comes to her studies. She shared that her daughter passed her SPM but she got no As. The mother said that she didn't need As, just passing was enough.

In the video, the girl can be seen still crying while being comforted by her friends. She was disappointed after seeing her friends got As while she did not. In the video, her mother writes that she knows the struggles and all the tears she shed. The mother shared that her daughter would study from morning to evening until she even fell asleep at the table.
