INTI International College Penang’s New South Wales High School Certificate (NSW HSC) students recorded a stunning 100% pass rate in 2014.

Nicole Ann Mathews, a recipient of INTI’s Centre of Excellence Pre-University Studies All Rounder Award is also the highest scorer with an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of 98.95, whilst Tan Wei Khang is in second place with an ATAR of 98.05 and Lee Chop Yan in third place with an ATAR of 94.70.

Nicole, an INTI e-scholarship recipient, whose ambition is to follow her parents’ footsteps and become a doctor, said that she chose to take up HSC at INTI because it was the shortest pathway to her university education.

Her advice to those keen on HSC is to be prepared for the pace of the 11-month programme.

“You must learn to manage your time effectively by having an organised and regular study schedule so you do not study only during exam periods,” said Nicole.

“In addition to studying, you should also join clubs and societies which cater to your interests and be open to trying new things, as this would further enrich your learning experience,” she said.

Wei Khang found his learning experience at INTI enriching and enjoyable.

“The lecturers here are highly experienced and really helpful – they would go the extra mile to help their students, which I am really grateful for,” he said, adding that he had a lot of fun at the college and that his time there has been “the best time of my life so far!”

This year, 30 INTI NSW HSC students obtained high distinctions while another 128 obtained distinctions.
