Background And Early Life:
He was born in Johor Bahru, Johor on February 12, 1922 to Dato Onn Jaafar and Datin Halimah Hussein.
He received his early education in Singapore and at the English College in Johor Bahru.

Upon completion of his training, he was absorbed into the Indian Army and served in the Middle East when the Second World War broke.

Mr Hussein

...Explanation of KS4 scoring system Capped and uncapped total points score At Key Stage 4 two different average points scores (APS) are calculated. Unlike at Key Stages 1-3 where almost all pupils take the national assessments, at Key Stage 4 pupils take different numbers of courses, so choices need to be made about how to compare performance. One way is through meeting thresholds, such as the percentage of pupils attaining 5+ A*-C. Another way is through points scores. Because of the different number of courses pupils take, the points score method is based on the total of a pupil’s points scores; it is not based on the average points score per subject, as is the case at Key Stages 1-3. First of all, the average total points score per pupil for all of the courses is calculated, so in schools where pupils are entered for a large number of courses this may be higher than in schools where pupils are entered for fewer, depending upon the grades they obtain. For example in School A, if pupils take 10 full GCSEs and in each obtain grade C, which has a points score of 40 (see table below), their total points score will be 10 x 40, which is 400. If all pupils in the school had the same results, the school’s average total points score would be 400. In School B all pupils might take only 8 GCSEs but in each attain grade B, which has a points score of 46. The school’s average total points score would be 368. So School A has a higher average total points score than School...
