Today's top 5 stories are:

1. A decline in students sitting for their SPM this year has been attributed to the abolishment of UPSR and PT3 examinations.

2. The Unity government has announced DAP's Pang Sock Tao as their candidate in the KKB by-elections.

3. Two men who illegally possessed 50 rhinoceros horns have pleaded not guilty and opted for a court proceeding, which is Malaysia's first open trial regarding the smuggling of this animal's horns.

4. An American professor who diffused pro-Israel statements in his talk in Universiti Malaya has been denounced by many Malaysians.
