It varies in different areas around the world because of the differences in weather, climate, season, and culture, but the normal pattern is for school to begin in late August or early September in the northern hemisphere and in late January or early February in Southern Hemisphere countries. The first day of school on Malaysia falls on the month of January, as Johor, Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah start first on the 4th January 2015, later by the other State of Malaysia on 5th January 2015.
