In Malaysia, as in most developing countries, performance of students in public examinations has become the yardstick of measuring the extent of success or failure of the learning and teaching process in a particular institution. The objective of this paper is to raise awareness amongst administrators, teachers and pupils, that through proper innovative post-mortem procedures on examinations and tests results, a more enhanced learning and teaching system could be applied to achieve academic excellence. The innovative post-mortem recounciles the synergised power of administrator, teachers and pupils to search for the 'best methods' through systematic dissection of past tests results, and also to re-discover effective ways of teaching and learning. I have applied innovative post-mortem procedures in my school, and we have been very successful. Because the issue of high achievement in public examinations has always been of great societal concern, I choose to share this finding/idea with all our fellow educationalists.
