19 year-old Lai from Klang, shared that securing a place in the University of Cambridge is his biggest achievement which he has longed for since Form 5. “When I was in Form 5, I decided that going into Cambridge will be my highest achievement in my life and since then, I worked hard for it,” said Lai, who also volunteered to teach Myanmar refugees during his studies in Sunway College.

Kaveena Maniam was a top student who scored 15As in the 2009 SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) examination. Saheb, who is interested in politics, shared his original plan was to pursue his studies in the London School of Economics. He, however, is happy to have secured a place in the University of Warwick as it is also one of the top universities in the world. The 19 year-old already made plans to specialise in philosophy and economics during his final years.

JPA (Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam) bursary scholar Nur Aina shared that she received an offer from Imperial College London. However, she might be pursuing her studies at the University of Nottingham, Malaysia, due to financial constraints. She also advised A-Level students to, “stay focus in class, then you will have a better understanding of the subject and perform well in exams.” Nur Aina scored straight As in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Her mother, Sabariah Mohd Zain is very proud of her daughter’s achievement.

Present for the June 2016 A-Level tea party was Cheng Mien Wee, Director of Pre-University Studies, Sunway College and Executive Director of Sunway International School; and Ruth Cheah Kah Yok, Director of A-Level Programme, Sunway College. In her speech, Cheng congratulated the cohort for their excellent achievements. She stressed that it is important for students who received offers from top universities such as the University of Oxford or University of Cambridge, to know that these offers affirm what they can do and achieve. She explained that it does not matter if they accepted the offer or not, but more importantly, it is about knowing the options open to them.
