Sunway College’s A Level students win gold and silver at International Mathematical Olympiad 2014

Two students from Sunway College recently returned home with gold and silver medals from the 10-day International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) 2014 held in Cape Town, South Africa. A-Level students Anzo Teh Zhao Yang won the gold whilst Khong Yi Kye secured the silver. Collectively with three others, the Malaysia team ranked 23rd. It is Malaysia’s best international ranking ever attained since it first participated in 1995. Anzo together with another teammate contributed to the country’s second and third gold since the first IMO gold in 2011.

The IMO, an extremely intensive and competitive mathematics competition, is one of the oldest, biggest and most prestigious of all the international science Olympiads. Participants are tested with questions ranging from precalculus to other mathematical branches not conventionally covered in schools or at university level, such as projective and complex geometry, functional equations and well-grounded number theory, of which extensive knowledge of theorems is required.

Top A-level Scorers from Sunway College

Sunway’s A-level top scorers and returning alumni from top universities gathered at a recently held A-level Tea Party by Sunway College celebrating the accomplishment of students in the June 2014 Cambridge examinations.

Among those present were Henry Lee Min Rong, who scored 4 A*s in Further Mathematics, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Articulate and cheerful, Henry is pleased to have been offered a place in Jesus College, University of Oxford to study Mechanical Engineering in October. “A-level was arguably the fast track to top universities. My experience at Sunway College has been truly challenging as it involves a lot of self-motivation and independent study in a university campus setting that is different from high school,” said Lee.
