Chua Hui Jen, a former SMK Pending student who obtained 3 A’s and a B in the CAL examination attributed her success to working hard consistently and having a disciplined approach to life.

“In addition to hard work, and the helpful guidance by lecturers, I would say that taking responsibility for one’s own academic and life journeys is important for a student’s progress and success,” said Hui Jen, a recipient of the INTI-Laureate Merit Scholarship who aspires to become a pharmacist.

Fellow scholarship recipient Ang Sze Tieng who scored straight A’s in the Advanced Subsidiary (AS) level examination had good reasons for choosing INTI’s CAL programme.

“I frequently heard from friends and read in the newspapers about INTI’s excellent track record for the programme, which leads to the preferred pre-university qualification for many students seeking a strong foundation for university studies,” said Sze Tieng, formerly of SMK Kuching High.

Hoping to pursue a degree in Biotechnology, Sze Tieng stressed that hard work, daily review of lessons and the guidance of her lecturers contributed immensely to her success.

Tiong Ing Kiat who scored 4 A’s at the AS level stated that his lecturers motivated him to excel in his studies. “With their expert guidance, I was able to enhance my time management and critical thinking skills which facilitated my progress in the programme,” he said. A former student of SMK Sacred Heart, Sibu, Ing Kiat aspires to become a professional engineer.

Commenting on the students’ performance in the recent external examinations, Mr. Clement Chang, Head of INTI College Sarawak’s Centre of Excellence for Pre-University Studies highlighted that, “the teaching and learning processes at INTI College Sarawak encourage students to tap their individual wellsprings of perseverance and determination along the academic voyage. This brings out the best in our students and goes a long way in the development of a positive attitude and mindset”.
