KDU Penang University College Produces another Award-Winning Student in the A-Levels Again
Teh Yu Xuan, a Science student from KDU Penang University College (KDU Penang) was recently bestowed the ‘Top in the World’ award under the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards 2018 for his AS-Level Mathematics examination, which he scored 100%.
Hard work + undying passion = success and international recognition.
This is the winning formula for a Malaysian A-Levels student who was recently crowned “Top in the World” for the subject of mathematics by Cambridge Assessment International Education.
A Science student at KDU Penang University College, Teh Yu Xuan scored 100 out of 100 in the demanding A-Levels mathematics paper – an achievement which both surprised and delighted him, a local English daily reported.
The 19-year-old told the daily that although he had loved the subject since primary school, he doubted he could score full marks for the A-Levels exam.
His unexpected success has now spurred his ambitions further, and Teh is currently considering pursuing Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics
“I had hoped for it as I have always loved Mathematics since primary school but did not think it would come true,” he said.
“It is really great news for me and my family, as my parents have been very supportive. I may pursue Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics in future, as I want to practise my passion to achieve my dreams,” he added.
He said the two most important elements in achieving something would be passion and practice, besides being in a conducive study environment with an efficient study plan. “If you have passion in what you do and you are able to put in hours of practice, it will lead you to what you want,” he said.
Apart from that, Teh also scored A’s in both his Physics and Chemistry papers even though he claimed the papers were challenging and that he did his best. This is why he was surprised that his hard work paid off. The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, conferred annually since 2004, are given in recognition of the success of students in the Cambridge A-Levels programme in over 40 countries.
Teh was among 20 students who sat for the exam in June this year. In Malaysia, up to 215 students were conferred several different Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards which included “Top in the World”, “Top in the Country”, “High Achievement”, “Top in the Region” and “Best Across” (a set of subjects).
