Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a powerful medium that has become increasingly important to society. The introduction of ICT as an elective subject in  Malaysian secondary schools will provide a valuable training ground for students. This will help  students  relate their ICT learning experiences to a progressive technology-based daily life. The curriculum provides a platform for producing a technologically capable work force. This will help meet the challenges of a global economy.

This subject is offered to all Form 4 and Form 5 students.  It aims to provide them with the knowledge, skills and values from several designated learning areas. It will also prepare them for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.
