Cheong Meng Chuan, who received the Top in the World for Mathematics, AS Level was accompanied by his parents. When asked how he felt, he said, “I was not expecting this award. But I believe hard work is the key to be top in the world. I kept pushing myself in completing all the past year exam papers, I did at least three times for each paper. I also have much to thank Ms Wong Sock Leng and Mr Lee Choo Sik (my Math teachers) for their sincere guidance and care.”

“I chose Sunway College A-Level because of its reputation of producing excellent A-level results”, said Cheong who will be getting his A2 results in January and thereafter hope to continue a degree in accounting in Singapore, Hong Kong or Australia.

His proud father Cheong Kah Hoe said, “I’m very happy and proud of my son. He has been very hardworking and brilliant in Mathematics. I will support him fully in his future endeavours.”

Teng Wai Li, recipient of 2 awards, the Top in the World for Mathematics A Level and Best Across Three Cambridge International A Levels said, “I am happy and certainly surprised in getting this award as this is a unique and special award. I am and will forever be grateful to my lecturers, particularly Ms Amy Khoo and Mr Lee Lip Seong, who have been very supportive in my studies. Coming from Melaka, they have been very generous and gracious to me for making me feel like I belong, sometimes they even took me out for meals.”

Teng is currently pursuing a 4 year undergraduate programme, Quantitative Finance and Risk Management at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government Scholarship which covers full tuition fee. “My parents support my living expenses. Studying in Hong Kong keeps me competitive because of the intensive study environment”, he adds.

His proud and happy parents Teng Sin Kee and Gan Siew Lay were glad that they chose Sunway College, “We think that this was the right decision because of the helpful and dedicated teachers. The study environment is also safe and conducive for him. For our child being away from home, his safety is our main concern and Sunway College campus gave us the assurance we need.”
