KOTA BARU: Listening to Quran recitation while studying was one of the recipes for success for Nik Nur Adreena Nik Mohd Kamil, 18, to emerge as Kelantan’s top scorer in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.

The Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Agama (SMKA) Naim Lilbanat student said she believed this helped her stay focused and sharpen her mind to achieve great success.

She said that some of her friends prefer to listen to songs while revising lessons, but she feels more comfortable listening to the Quran as it induces a sense of relaxation.

"Alhamdulillah, I scored 11A+ in all subjects, namely Bahasa Melayu, English, History, Physics, Biology, Quran and Sunnah Studies, Arabic, Mathematics, Chemistry, Islamic Syariah Studies and Additional Mathematics.

"I did not expect to achieve this success today as I did not have high expectations. For me to emerge as the top student for Kelantan is an unexpected blessing,” she told reporters when met at the Dewan Haji Yacob, SMKA Naim Lilbanat today (June 8).

Nik Nur Adreena, who wants to become a doctor, said she spent about three hours a day revising her school lessons, besides attending additional classes organised by the school in preparation for SPM.

"I usually study from 9pm until around midnight. I also do exercises with past year questions, which is very helpful.

"I want to dedicate and share this success with my mother and family members who have supported me throughout my school years, as well as the teachers and friends at SMKA Naim Lilbanat,” she said. - Bernama
