Malaysian Top Singapore O Level

O level exam is similar to Malaysian SPM examination. However, it is not easy to score well in O Level because the exam is really tough. Congrats to our students who did so well and make the country proud. Great job to Lai Kai Rou.

SINGAPORE: A Malaysian who studied in a Singapore school emerged tops when she scored 10 A1s in the 2009 Singapore Cambridge General Certificate of Education (Ordinary Level) examination.

Lai Kai Rou, 16, who hails from Selangor, studied at the CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School (SNGS) which was also the best school as 14 of the 42 top scorers who scored nine A1s in the country were its students.

The Singapore Cambridge GCE O-Level Examination was conducted jointly by the Uni-versity of Cambridge Inter-national Examinations, the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board and the ministry.

A total of 37,424 school candidates sat for the 2009 O-Level Examination and 37,380 or 99.9% had been awarded certificates, the ministry said.

Lai entered the Singapore school four years ago after completing her primary school in a Chinese school. – Bernama
