“I would express my deepest appreciation to my Mathematics lecturers, Mr Samuel, Ms Lim and Miss Koh for the best and personalised tips on improving. I would also like to send my word of appreciation to my friends for their love and support in and out of the classroom. Lastly, my parents for being that pillar to embrace whenever I am feeling lost,” he said.

The MCKL also noted that the ‘High Achievement’ is awarded to students who have achieved the highest marks in the country in a particular subject which is not widely taken.

It added that the latest achievement marks a string of Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards for MCKL over the past several years.

Meanwhile, MCKL chief executive officer Angela Pok said that the college is incredibly proud of their Cambridge A Level students’ achievements, and that beating the competition for such a highly contested award by almost a million students around the globe is not an easy feat.

“Our students’ achievements are not only impressive, but they are also highly relevant. As the world is quickly evolving, creating a more highly competitive and demanding environment, it is important to have a firm grasp on global academic skills, which are key elements to succeed in this fast-changing world,” she said.

The Cambridge IGCSE is an internationally recognised exam that provides students with the opportunity to earn a prestigious international qualification.

Last year, more than one million students participated in Cambridge International-based examinations, from over 10,000 schools around the world, including the UK, the USA, China, India, Singapore and Malaysia.
