The results of the Cambridge A Level examination in November 2010 released recently confirm that outstanding performance is achievable at INTI College Sarawak (ICSK). The 100 percent pass rate of the students indicates they have what it takes to be ranked among the best in the world.
|Lee (left) and Ng proudly show their excellent results which will help them fulfill their educational goals.
Lee Hong Jong obtained straight A’s which included 3 A*’s and I A. She has achieved percentage uniform marks of 99 percent in Chemistry and 93 percent in Biology and Mathematics.
“Our lecturers went the extra mile to assist and encourage students who had problems in their studies. As classes were kept small, we received individual attention,” said Lee, an INTI scholarship holder who aspires to become a dentist or pharmacist and hopes to further her studies at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
“I for one kept asking questions in class when in doubt and our lecturers always enlightened us,” she added.
Close behind Lee is Alvin Ng Yuan Liang who scored 3A’s and 1B. His decision to enrol into ICSK’s Cambridge A Level programme was based on the College’s excellent reputation and track record as a quality education provider.
“Apart from my own efforts to enhance knowledge and understanding, such as working hard and self-studying, I have to thank my lecturers for their close guidance, without which success would have been harder to achieve,” said the former student of SMK St. Thomas Kuching.
Ng, also an INTI scholarship holder, aims to pursue a medical degree at the International Medical University (IMU) in Kuala Lumpur. His excellent grades, which include a score of 92 percent for Chemistry would certainly give him an edge over many other aspiring medical students.
The Cambridge A Level is a ‘gold standard’ qualification that opens the doors to higher studies in Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Engineering and Law at prestigious universities around the world. It has enabled ICSK students to gain entry into top universities including Oxford, Cambridge, the London School of Economics, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Stanford, the National University of Singapore and others. Good grades in carefully chosen A Level subjects can allow up to one full year of advance standing or credit at universities in the USA and Canada. For students who enroll in ICSK’s March intake, the qualification can be obtained in one year and four months.
