The A-Levels Programme offered at UCSI University since 1997 has seen 30% its students achieve straight As and a 90% passing rate. Many of UCSI’s A-Levels students have gone to study at top ranked universities in the world such as Cambridge University, Imperial College London, University College London, King’s College London, Australian National University, Melbourne University, University of New South Wales, National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and many more.

Cambridge GCE A-Levels is the ‘gold standard’ qualification, which is based on rigorous, academic syllabus that optimises the abilities of talented students with a wide range of abilities and stretches the full potential of the most able students.

The Cambridge International AS and A-Levels courses are viewed as equivalent to the AS and A-Levels in the UK, and are accepted for entrance to all UK universities.

The Cambridge GCE A-Level programme at UCSI University follows a ‘staged’ assessment, in contrast to the traditional linear A-Levels where all courses are assessed in a single examination session at the end of the course. Its flexibility enables students to sit for the AS level in one examination and complete the final Cambridge International A-Levels at a subsequent session.

There is also a performance feedback session where students who have completed the AS level will receive valuable feedback on their performance, thus identifying their own strengths and weaknesses that will help them set learning goals for the A2 level.

Long preferred by students and parents, the GCE Advanced Level qualification – better known as A-Level – stands out as the preferred pre-university qualification.

With 27 impactful years in the Malaysian education landscape, UCSI University’s Centre for Pre-University Studies is no stranger to the local A-Level scene. The Centre has placed its fair share of students abroad. Most go on to prestigious British or Australian universities and some even make a name for themselves in the process.

In addition to following the full and challenging curriculum, Mabel Tan, Head of the Centre of Pre-U Studies, said students were also encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities, ensuring holistic, personal development.

UCSI’s A-Level students also get job or hospital attachments during their semester break, which

imbue them with the benefits of hands-on practice, and also afford a glimpse into their future work environments. Testament to its educational excellence, many of those students have obtained full or partial scholarships by institutions and organisations locally and abroad.

“Even the University of Melbourne accepts our A-Level students’ forecast grades for direct entry into their degree programmes,” Tan said

Take for example, the stories of  Too Wai Hao winning Top in the World AS Mathematics June 2015 and Joel Chin Top in the World AS Mathematics Jan 2015

In the 2014 November exam, UCSI University recorded a 99.5% pass rate and almost 30% of its students scored straight A’s.

Other achievers include Ling Chen Jiet, Yong Su Wen and Lee Chia Choon, who bagged World Top 10 Achiever Awards in the GCE A-Level June 2012 examinations. The trio edged other prodigious students from around the world in Chemistry and Ling went one better by bagging another coveted award for Biology. Ling secured a seat at UCL while Yong and Lee are at the University of Nottingham and the University of Bath, respectively.

Other A-Level achievers include Kim Eun Jin from South Korea obtaining 1A* 4As  in the GCE A-Level Jan 2013 Examination and Jeshaiah Khor Zhen Syuen who was only 13 when he obtained 1 A*, 3As in the June 2012 GCE A-Level Examination. Loh Chen Lam achieved straight A’s while Tai Sin Yee, scored one A* and two A’s.

Their monumental success effectively proves that Malaysian students are more

than capable of being the best, adding credence to UCSI’s status as a preferred pre-university provider.

Having produced Top 10 Achievers in 2009 and 2010 as well, the feat is something of a recurring theme and the Centre is gratified to help the best go further.

More than 40% of the Centre’s students scored A*’s – the highest possible grade – and A’s in their subjects and the trend is set to continue as UCSI is committed to take its Centre from good to great.

Offering the A-Level programme at its campuses in Sarawak and Kuala Lumpur, UCSI grooms students academically and mentally to pass the all-important exams set – and marked – by examiners in Britain.

Staffed by quality academics – over 80% of them have postgraduate credentials
