Ada pihak mencadangkan, kenapa tidak dihapuskan Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR), atau digubal semula untuk mengikut keperluan pendidikan dan rentak pembangunan negara. Bagaimanapun kerajaan berpandangan ia harus dikekalkan dengan pengubahsuasaian. Keputusan UPSR yang menjadi tanda aras kemasukan pelajar ke sekolah berasrama penuh pula mungkin tidak dipakai, sebaliknya dicadangkan supaya mengambil mengambil kira pencapaian pelajar sepanjang enam tahun di sekolah rendah. Ada pihak pula berpandangan, sejak sekian lama sistem peperiksaan di sekolah kita terlalu memberi penekanan kepada aspek keputusan, bermakna markah maksimum menjadi kayu ukur kepada kecemerlangan pelajar. Melihat kepada keperluan pendidikan dan pembangunan sahsiah pelajar, masihkan UPSR ini relevan dengan keperluan pendidikan dan perkembangan mental dan jatidiri pelajar, atau sesuatu dilakukan secara menyeluruh terhadap sistem pendidikan, tidak sekadar terhadap ujian ini. Hakikatnya, pelajar sekarang terlalu dibebani dengan tekanan supaya mencapai keputusan yang baik dalam peperiksaan sehingga meletakkan mereka dalam tekanan dan seluruh kehidupan harian mereka semata-mata untuk buku, guru dan tuisyen. Persoalan yang perlu diambil perhatian adalah apakah UPSR merupakan mekanisme yang tepat untuk menilai pelajar dan membekalkan barisan pelapis yang memasuki sekolah menengah, peringkat universiti dan pekerjaan. Persoalannya, apakah ujian ini perlu dihapuskan dan tidak perlu ada sebarang ujian yang berorientasikan keputusan, sebaliknya negara ada satu sistem persekolahan dan penilaian yang melahirkan pelajar yang cerdas dan kreatif pemikiran mereka.
