In Bahasa Malaysia, it was called Kementerian Pendidikan, and was in charge of all the education-related affairs. In 2004, its name was changed to Kementerian Pelajaran and then became in charge of the education from pre-school up to the secondary level. The tertiary education was taken over by a new ministry, Ministry of Higher Education until May 2013 where Prime Minister Najib Razak announced the two ministries will be merged to form a single Ministry of Education. In 2015, the ministry was split again.
