Students gain entry to top universities
TO celebrate the outstanding results of their A-Level students, HELP University organised a tea party for them and their parents at its main campus in Pusat Bandar Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. This was in conjunction with the release of the Edexcel A-Level results for the June 2013 examination.
The results showed an increase in the percentage of straight As attained by the students from 40% in 2012 to 46.5% for this year’s examination, or a total of 135 students out of the 288 who sat for the exam. The overall pass rate was 92%.
Students were also accepted into top universities like Cambridge, Oxford, University College London, London School of Economics and Stanford University, many with scholarships from the universities or from JPA, the Ministry of Education, Bank Negara and multinational corporations.
At the party, HELP chancellor Datuk Paul Leong congratulated the students on their outstanding achievements. He also paid tribute to their parents for nurturing them into achievers and thanked them for entrusting their children’s A-Level education to HELP.
HELP vice-chancellor and president Datuk Dr Paul Chan also expressed his joy at the students’ success, and hoped that the students would build on the strong foundation provided by HELP’s A-Level programme and continue to achieve academic excellence in their chosen course of study at university.
Dr Chan was confident that a HELP student would become presi- dent of the Oxford Union one day.
HELP’s A-Level programme head Jahn Cheah attributed her high scores to the effort of the lecturers, popularly known as the “A-Team”. Cheah acknowledged that the team is tops in the business. Apart from their wide experience and teaching skills, the A-Level lecturers provide personalised coaching to improve students’ study and learning skills.
At the party, the A-Level achiev- ers exchanged results with each other and traded information about the various prestigious universities they were going to.
Calvin Yeoh, who scored three As* and one A, received offers of a place in four top universities: Oxford, University College London, London School of Economics and Stanford University. He has decided to go to Stanford to study Maths.
Twin sisters Cherilyn and Jacqueline Hoe both scored four As*. Their parents sent them to HELP after their brother Jonathan successfully completed his studies at the college before that and was accepted into the University of Queensland.
Since HELP first established its A-Levels programme, it has grown by leaps and bounds. It was the first centre to be named Centre of Excellence by Edexcel International UK for exceptional delivery of the London GCE A-Levels.
Today HELP offers both the Edexcel and the Cambridge A-Level examinations.
The next intake for both Edexcel and Cambridge programmes is in January 2014.
