Chia Pei Yun: Malaysian gets 10 A1s in Singapore's GCE O Level exam

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian student made the nation proud when she received 10 A1s in Singapore's GCE O Level examination.

Chia Pei Yun, who hails from Kuala Lumpur, moved to Singapore to study at CHIJ Saint Nicholas Girls School on a Singapore-Asean Scholarship.

She received her results on Monday.

Singapore Today reported that even though Chia had a reason to celebrate, her road to success was not exactly "a walk in the park".

It was reported in the Singapore daily that Chia was determined and consistent at working hard on every test she had to take and she tried to keep a positive mindset.

Chia, who is an avid music lover, plans to enrol in a junior college and wants to do humanitarian work in the future.

Meanwhile, CHIJ Saint Nicholas Girls School principal Chan Wan Siong told the New Straits Times that the school was more than happy as it was the third year it had emerged with top students in the O Level examination.

"We are very proud with Chia's achievement. She is the only one from CHIJ Saint Nicholas Girls School to score 10 A1s this year."

According to Chan, the school has an estimated 40 Malaysian students.

"The recruitment process is usually done in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

"The school will recruit 10 students for every intake at each secondary level according to the school's cohort.

"After recruitment, students are expected to begin their secondary one and complete all four secondary levels," she added.

Chan added Chia was not the only Malaysian to have achieved such good results.

"Lai Kai Rou obtained similar results as Chia last year, and Haw Sue Ren the year before."
