It also investigates the evaluation of science teachers’ regarding the advantages and disadvantages of SBA. A total of 112 science teachers from 21 secondary schools in Batang Padang District, Perak, Malaysia were involved in this survey. The data from the questionnaires and survey were analyzed using descriptive statistics and statistical inference. Frequency distribution with mean scores and percentages and Pearson correlation analysis were used. Results showed that the dimensions of context, input and product are at a moderate level while the level of process dimension is high. Hypothesis is also accepted, there is no significant relationship between the level of dimensional context, input, process and product in the implementation of SBA with teaching experience. Analysis of the interviews showed that most respondents agree that there are advantages of SBA, thus is suitable with the aim of Malaysia to create a world-class human capital.
