He had to study twice as hard, but his efforts paid off handsomely in the end.The SABK Maahad Behyak Al-Diniah Islamiah student in Kampung Gajah scored six As and two As.
“I jotted down all the notes and tips given by the teacher and did revision early in the morning before going to school.
“It was not easy, but I wanted to prove that I could do it,” said the 18-year-old when met at the state education department yesterday.
His mother Shareah Samsuddin, 57, raised him and his four siblings alone following his father’s death two years ago.
Muhamad Izhan plans to enter the National Youth Training Institute as he hopes to become a lecturer.
