Gain the BAC ad­van­tage

BRICK­FIELDS Asia Col­lege (BAC) has over the past 21 years es­tab­lished it­self as a renowned provider of world-class ed­u­ca­tion in the ar­eas of law and man­age­ment.

As a first step to­wards an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree, BAC of­fers the Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions (CIE) A-Level that is recog­nised by uni­ver­si­ties and higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions in over 150 coun­tries, mak­ing it the most widely ac­cepted pre-univer­sity qual­i­fi­ca­tion in the world.

The CIE A-Level is a per­fect preuniver­sity pro­gramme for stu­dents who have not de­cided on a spe­cific ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion path be­cause it keeps doors open to a broad range of pro­grammes.

Stu­dents look­ing to get a head­start in their ca­reers will find the BAC A-Level Ex­press Route pro­gramme the per­fect op­tion for them.

This spe­cially de­signed 11-month pro­gramme gives BAC stu­dents an edge over those on the stan­dard 18 or 24-month route. Cou­pled with BAC’s UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme in Law or Busi­ness, stu­dents will be able to grad­u­ate up to two years ahead of their peers, mak­ing BAC the fastest and smartest way to over 70 UK Law and Busi­ness de­grees.

The A-Level pro­gramme at BAC of­fers more than just flex­i­bil­ity with the ex­press and stan­dard routes. It serves as a solid foun­da­tion to ter­tiary stud­ies.

This is ev­i­dent when con­sid­er­ing the achieve­ments of BAC’s A-Level stu­dents.

As tes­ta­ment to the qual­ity of BAC’s A-Level pro­gramme, 2013 and 2012 saw stellar per­for­mances in the A-Level ex­am­i­na­tions.

This year, two of BAC’s stu­dents were awarded the Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Awards, 2013.

Amanda Kong was awarded the Best Stu­dent in the World for Law while Lau Foong Yee was awarded the Best Stu­dent in the World for Busi­ness Stud­ies.

Other top stu­dents in­cluded Kong Xin Qing who scored 4A*s while both Lau Foong Yee and Thi­agu Naidu scored 3A*s each along with six other stu­dents scor­ing straight As in the 2013 ex­am­i­na­tions.

Th­ese re­sults were no flash in the pan as the pre­vi­ous year also saw two of BAC’s stu­dents re­ceiv­ing the Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Awards.

Ju­dith Pretha was awarded the Best Stu­dent in the World for Law and Lau Foong Yee was ac­knowl­edged as the Best Stu­dent in the World for Busi­ness Stud­ies.

In ad­di­tion, nine BAC stu­dents scored straight As af­ter com­plet­ing their pro­gramme in only 11 months.

Among BAC’s top per­form­ers are those who be­gan their pre-univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion at the col­lege.

Th­ese in­clude Cam­bridge Bril­liance Award win­ners Soh Kit Inn who was the Top Stu­dent in the World for Law and Rachel Tey Mei Yee who was the top stu­dent in Malaysia for Busi­ness Stud­ies in the Oc­to­ber 2010 A-Level ex­am­i­na­tions.

Many of the stu­dents who be­gan with the BAC A-Level Ex­press Route have also gone on to achieve stellar per­for­mances in their un­der­grad­u­ate stud­ies.

Among th­ese stu­dents are Geral­dine Kenel who went on to read law and grad­u­ate from Aberys­t­wyth Univer­sity with a first class LLB (Hons) in 2012 at the age of 20 and Tan Meng Yee who grad­u­ated from Cardiff Univer­sity with first class LLB (Hons) in 2011 at the age of 19.

BAC A-Level stu­dents have also se­cured var­i­ous pres­ti­gious schol­ar­ships. Kim­ber­ley Ong, who scored 3A*s in Law, Busi­ness Stud­ies and Eco­nom­ics in the A-Level, was sub­se­quently named the “Best Stu­dent in Malaysia” for the June 2011 Univer­sity of Lon­don In­ter­me­di­ate Ex­am­i­na­tions and was awarded the King’s Col­lege Schol­ar­ship to com­plete her fi­nal two years of study in the UK.

In 2010, Kan­i­moli Balakr­ish­nan re­ceived the Se­cu­ri­ties Com­mis­sion Schol­ar­ship to read law at War­wick Univer­sity and in 2011, De­bra Nita se­cured the Astro Schol­ar­ship Award to read law at King’s Col­lege, both hav­ing com­pleted the A-Level at BAC.

Re­cently, BAC launched the Brick­fields Busi­ness School which is housed in its new RM80mil cam­pus in Pe­tal­ing Jaya. Among the cour­ses of­fered on the pro­gramme are Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Busi­ness Ac­count­ing, Fi­nance and dual hon­ours such as Busi­ness and Law, Busi­ness and Mar­ket­ing and Busi­ness Ac­count­ing.

To make ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion more ac­ces­si­ble to stu­dents, BAC has set up the Brick­fields Ed­u­ca­tion Fund. This fund awards Merit Schol­ar­ships and Fi­nan­cial Aid Schol­ar­ships to stu­dents based on aca­demic ex­cel­lence and fi­nan­cial need.

BAC has also col­lab­o­rated with the Star Ed­u­ca­tion Fund, MAPCU Ed­u­ca­tion Fund and Sin Chew Ed­u­ca­tion Fund to pro­vide more schol­ar­ship op­tions for stu­dents.

BAC’s Jan­uary 2014 in­take is now un­der­way and stu­dents who sign up will get a com­pli­men­tary Mi­crosoft Sur­face RT tablet (terms and­con­di­tions ap­ply) worth RM1,099. Stu­dents stand a chance to win a Lo­tus Elise, a Mini One or a trip to watch the FA Cup Fi­nals in Lon­don.
