'It’s Different And It’s Fresh!': Netizens Gives Local Coming-Of-Age Series 'Projek: Anchor SPM' The Thumbs Up
There's one word that's made up of three letters that would no doubt bring back some anxiety: SPM.

The never-ending revisions, all the endless preparations and ultimately, the fear of not knowing if you'll ever graduate from high school is just too stressful for some.

But that does make a good TV drama, doesn't it?

Focusing on the most stressful part of school

The 'Projek: Anchor SPM' is a teen-centred drama set in a fictitious boarding school called Tengku Isa Anuar School (STIA) located in Cameron Highlands.

The students at this school wear sweaters, play rugby and have school jerseys which they don with pride. 

A unique setting.

Not your typical Malaysian school
While the whole look may be quite different from the usual sekolah menengah, the students there still face the same headache - scoring straight A's for SPM. 

And that's the whole premise of the story.

Pressured and pushed to a corner, Aizat comes up with a clever plan to get the school brainiac Aaidaa (Daiyan Trisha) to help him and the whole batch score by cheating during the exams.
