DETERMINATION to become a doctor like her father motivated Sek Men Ibrahim's top student C. Dhinashini to work hard. She scored 11 1As in last year's SPM. 

“I want to be like my father. That motivated me to do well in my studies,'' she said.  

“Since young I have been watching my father treat his patients with so much dedication.''  

Dhinashini scored IAs in Bahasa Malaysia, English, Addi-tional Mathematics, Mathe-matics, Moral Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Art, Prin-ciple of Accounts and History. 

“I aimed for 11 As but did not expect to get all IAs. It is indeed a pleasant surprise ,'' she said after collecting her results from the school here yesterday. 

She said her father, a gynaecologist , and mother, a lawyer, had given her moral support.  

Dhinashini is now doing her matriculation in Taylor's College in Kuala Lumpur. 

“I plan to do medicine in Britain or Australia hopefully under a government scholarship,'' added the state tennis champion in 2000 and 2001. 

Wendy Chen Tyng Tyng and Bee Soo Yin from the same school scored 10 1As and two 2As. 

Kuala Muda/Yan district education officer Khalid Dan, who announced the results said 13 students out of the school's 233 who sat for the exam last year scored 11As, nine with 10As and one with 9As.  

The school achieved 100% passes last year compared with 99.6% the previous year.
