Flying colours: Anis showing her STPM results in Klang.
KLANG: After news spread that she was among the top students in the country to score a perfect CGPA (cumulative grade point average) of 4.0 in the STPM examinations, Anis Syarirah Saiful said she was over the moon and thanked her teachers and parents for her success.
The 20-year-old from Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah said there was no secret to success apart from daily revisions.
“I woke up at 4am, said my prayers, and studied every day,” she said, adding that her teachers and parents also played an important role in her success.
Anis said her next plan was to pursue her long-time dream of studying Arabic language at Universiti Islam Antarabangsa.
Fellow top student, Naim Syukri Sidek, 20, who comes from the same college, also thanked God for his success.
“All I want to do now is to further my law studies at Universiti Malaya,” he said.
Former principal of the college, Abdullah Jusoh, who retired just two months ago, said Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah had emerged as the top institution in the country for the sixth time in a row.
“Although I have retired, I am proud of what the college has achieved,” he said, congratulating the students and teachers.
All 59 STPM students from the college passed, with 29 of them scoring a CGPA of 3.5 and above.
