Students from across Malaysia have done their country proud with more than 200 award winners from 58 schools being named top achievers at the Cambridge Assessment International Education’s Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards.
This year’s awards ceremony saw a total of 227 awards presented for achievements in Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Levels. Of the winners, 124 learners received Top of the World awards; 21 obtained High Achievement and 77 ranked Top in Malaysia.
There were a further three awards presented to students who obtained first place in Best Across Three Cambridge International A Levels, Best Across Four Cambridge International AS Levels and Best Across Eight IGCSEs. The most outstanding performances came in subjects such as economics, computer science, mathematics and First Language English.
Dr Ben Schmidt, Regional Director, Southeast Asia & Pacific, Cambridge International, said: 'When students graduate from secondary school into higher education, I believe that there are many lessons to learn.
'They will be faced with a new-found independence, and this gives them the opportunity to create their own path in life. I’m beyond proud of the achievements of this year’s winners, who will venture on to great things.
‘Regardless of what our learners have decided to pursue, I am confident that our curriculum, which emphasises independent thinking, has prepared them to brave their own challenges and emerge victorious.'
Kan Man Kit, of Methodist College, Kuala Lumpur, and winner of Best Across Three Cambridge International A Levels, said: 'Going through Cambridge A Levels has taught me to become more analytical; finding a solution is not as important as the means that were used to achieve that solution.
'I am currently pursuing a degree in Actuarial Science on full scholarship at the University of Hong Kong, and having an analytical mindset is a critical trait. Needless to say, going through Cambridge A Levels has prepared me for what’s ahead.'
