KYUEM con­tin­ues to shine

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

THE July 2015 and Jan­uary 2016 co­horts of KYUEM stu­dents have again set another new record of Cam­bridge A-Level suc­cess this year with 90% of grades at A*-B; 74% at A*-A; 62% of stu­dents gain­ing at least three A grades; 30% of stu­dents gain­ing four A grades and 27% of stu­dents gain­ing at least three A* grades.

This year saw KYUEM equal its record num­ber of con­di­tional places at Ox­ford and Cam­bridge, while ma­jor UK and US uni­ver­si­ties are all well rep­re­sented in the over­all tally of re­sults. At a time of some un­cer­tainty over such ex­ter­nal is­sues as Brexit, main­tain­ing high stan­dards of suc­cess and con­tin­ued place­ment in some of the finest uni­ver­si­ties in the world is no mean achieve­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to ap­pli­ca­tion statis­tics by Uni­ver­sity of Cam­bridge, KYUEM had the high­est num­ber of of­fers in Malaysia in 2016. The 2017 statis­tics will only be pub­lished next year but eight stu­dents will be en­rolling at Cam­bridge Uni­ver­sity this month. These out­comes have be­come com­mon at the KYUEM since it was es­tab­lished in 1998. KYUEM stu­dents are spe­cial. They are se­lected not only based on aca­demic abil­ity, but also be­cause they have dis­played com­mit­ment and suc­cess in a range of other ac­tiv­i­ties.

KYUEM em­ploys both lo­cal and ex­pa­tri­ate teach­ers, many hold­ing first class hon­ours de­grees, master’s de­grees and doc­tor­ates who are con­vinced of the value of their work and share a com­mon de­sire that their stu­dents should suc­ceed.

KYUEM stu­dents work hard and as­sess­ment of progress is both rig­or­ous and reg­u­lar. They re­ceive ex­cel­lent ad­vice about how to work ef­fec­tively and how to re­vise and also ex­cel­lent guid­ance about uni­ver­sity ap­pli­ca­tions.

The col­lege pro­vides a broad range of ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties, which help de­velop stu­dents’ wider in­ter­ests, per­son­al­i­ties, team­work abil­i­ties, com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and lead­er­ship po­ten­tial.
