Malaysian student Andrew Nge Jing Shuen recently made the country proud after receiving awards from the Cambridge Assessment International Education.
17-year-old Andrew, a student at the Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School, Petaling Jaya, was honoured at the recent Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards for getting the highest standard mark in the world for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGSCE) examination for Mathematics and Additional Mathematics, which he sat for in November 2018.
In a press statement from Beaconhouse, Andrew said,
“I am extremely honoured to have received this global recognition. I love maths because of how it challenges me to solve difficult problems, and I am happy that my passion and hard work has helped me achieve this truly memorable moment.”
“Learning wasn’t always easy for me and I really struggled with homework due to low concentration earlier on in my education. But things turned around for me thanks to the dedication, patience, and encouragement of my parents, teachers, and peers who motivated and encouraged me to never give up and always try my best.”
Meanwhile, Nicki Coombs, Executive Principal of Andrew’s school, said,
“We are incredibly proud of Andrew’s achievement. He has worked so hard and has racked up impressive academic achievements in the past few years. This is the cherry on top and he is thoroughly deserving of this international recognition.”
Now, Andrew is pursuing a South Australian Matriculation course and hopes to become a pharmacist to one day develop life-saving medication.
We cannot be more proud of Andrew and wish him all the best in pursuing his dreams! #MalaysiaBoleh!
