Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards Mark Success of INTI’s A Level Students

January 12, 2012

The exceptional performance of INTI’s Cambridge A Level students have once again led to multiple awards for them, including “Top in the World” and “Top in Malaysia” at the recent Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards ceremony held at Hotel Armada, Petaling Jaya.

Tay Weiyang of INTI International University was awarded Top in the World for Economics, Top in Malaysia for Mathematics and Second place in Malaysia for Best Across Four Cambridge International AS (Advanced Subsidiary) Levels.

“My A Level success brings me one step closer to my aspiration of pursuing studies in economics in the UK or engineering in the US. The great thing about studying at INTI, which has helped me get this far, is the distraction-free campus and the close knit-community where friends are always there for me,” said Tay, a full scholarship recipient who believes in enjoying his time as a student with the many activities available on campus.

Adrian Siew Peng Leong was the outstanding performer at INTI International College Subang. He received the Top in Malaysia award for Mathematics and explained how being a student at INTI helped in his success.

“I like the small class sizes. You get more attention from the lecturers and they are always there for you when you need their help. My Mathematics lecturer is a perfect example of the dedication and commitment of lecturers at INTI. Her positive attitude to teaching and everyday life is so strong that it actually rubs off on us students,” he said.

Tay Weiyang stands proud with his awards.

Apart from Tay and Siew, Ho Jia Min of INTI International University was awarded Second place in Malaysia for Best Across Three Cambridge International AS Levels. INTI International College Penang’s Khoo Teng Jian was awarded Top in Malaysia for Mathematics and First in Malaysia for Best Across Four Cambridge International A Levels. Khoo had gained recognition earlier this year for Top in Malaysia for Mathematics and Second Place in Malaysia for Best Across Four Cambridge International AS Levels. He scored an average percentage uniform mark of 99.8 for his A Levels and is currently pursuing Electronic Engineering at the University of Southampton in the UK. His outstanding A Level result is exemplary of the consistency displayed by INTI’s top students throughout their study period.

Khoo’s parents, Mr and Mrs Khoo Boo Aun, were ecstatic over their son’s excellent results and attributed part of his success to the rich learning environment at INTI. “INTI’s lecturers are very dedicated and hardworking. When Teng Jian first set out to look for a college for his pre-university studies, he did a careful evaluation of the options available and chose INTI for its better quality. He was also awarded a full scholarship to pursue his A Level studies,” said Mrs Khoo, who together with her husband had travelled from Penang just to attend the ceremony.

“I am pleased by the success of our students who have demonstrated determination and diligence throughout their Cambridge A Level studies to achieve these outstanding results,” said Mary Ng, INTI’s Vice President of Pre-University Programmes. “INTI is very proud of them; they are excellent role models who will inspire their peers to become world-class high achievers. We thank our lecturers and staff for inspiring our students to realize their full potential.”
