ELEVEN A-Level students from Sunway College received a total of 15 prestigious Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) awards for their outstanding performance in the recent Cambridge examination series.Sunway is the recipient of the highest number of Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards in Malaysia for the sixth consecutive year, the college said in a press release on May 18.
The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards celebrate the success of students taking Cambridge examinations in over 40 countries around the world.
As a testament to the institution’s consistent quality and result, the college was also named the number one provider in the country by the CAIE office of Malaysia.
Of the 11 students, six were awarded the highest distinction, which is ‘Top in the World’. The ‘Top in the World’ awards recognise those who achieved the highest standard mark in the world for a single subject.
One of the students, Chai Zi Yang, was awarded first place and given the title ‘Best Across Four’ by CAIE for his exceptional performance in the subjects of Mathematics and Physics. The ‘Best Across’ awards are issued to learners who achieved an A grade and attained the first highest cumulative total standard marks over a set number of subjects.
“My experience in the past one-and-a-half years here has been wonderful and a delight thanks to the competent and dedicated teachers and staff members. I am truly grateful to my teachers and Sunway College for providing this learning experience.
“My future is still hidden behind the mist of uncertainty which I hope will clear up as I go along. But whatever the future may hold, I am excited for it,” shared Zi Yang.
The other five ‘Top in the World’ awardees are Natalie Tan Wen Hui (Literature in English), Eng Yi Jun (Mathematics), Lee Luo Tong (Mathematics), Ker Yiu Wayn (Physics) and Tan Hau Zhe (Chemistry).
Ker Yiu Wayn and Tan Hau Zhe also received the ‘Top in Malaysia’ award for Chemistry and Biology respectively.

Dennis Lim Yan Bin received the same award for Thinking Skills.
“I am incredibly proud of the 15 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards bagged by our A-Level scholars.
“While the past year has brought along its fair share of challenges to our student’s learning experience, these achievements are a true testament of our unwavering efforts in ensuring quality education and continuous support for our students,” said Sunway College A-Level programme director Ruth Cheah.
