"Malaysia Education Blueprint (MEB) 2012 - 2025 includes the National Education Philosophy's vision of a balanced education as its foundation for individual student aspirations. The pre-school, primary, secondary, and higher education systems share a vision of what the outcome of a Malaysian education should look like, and what that means for individual students. The Ministry emphasises the balance between both knowledge and skills (ilmu) as well as ethics and morality (akhlak). The student aspirations in the MEB are built around six primary attributes: ethics and spirituality, leadership skills, national identity, language proficiency, thinking skills, and knowledge. These are the same six attributes for students that the higher education system is anchored on," added by YBhg. Datin Sri Hajah Nor Zamani binti Abdol Hamid.
