“As president of the Student Ambassadors, I have to shoulder many responsibilities but this was all possible with the help of my lecturers who were always there to lend a helping hand throughout my studies,” he said.
Sin who has been nominated for the Asean scholarship for National University of Singapore said that he hoped to get to pursue his tertiary education in chemical engineering soon.
Meanwhile, for Ruth Sim, who was keen to pursue her undergraduate studies in pharmacy said that she chose to pursue the programme from the college because it is an enriching programme and it was widely recognised.
Sim, who was also a recipient of the Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia (KPM) Bursary for her excellent Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia results, believed that a constant revision and guidance from lecturers is one of the factors in getting good results in studies.
