Meet Tan Wei Zhi, 16, who is currently preparing to take the Cambridge International A-Level examinations in November this year. He will receive his provisional results in January 2020 and will be eligible to apply for universities in Singapore, USA, UK, etc. with them.
Wei Zhi, who is interested in studying Medicine or Computer Science at the National University of Singapore (NUS), is one year ahead of his compatriots in Singapore, as they are still in their first year of Junior College and will only sit for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-Level examinations at the end of 2020 and receive their results in February 2021.
“I will like to thank Mr Argus Ang, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore International School: RVi Academy Yangon, as well as the management team and my teachers, for their guidance and support throughout my studies here,” said Wei Zhi, who received 4 Distinctions in the 2014 Singapore International Primary School Examination (iPSLE) and 5 Distinctions in the 2017 Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations, “Through the personalised attention and counselling provided to me at SIS, I was able to understand the different pathways available in different countries so that I could plan for my further education.”
“We are very proud of Wei Zhi’s achievements and wish him all the best in the upcoming Cambridge examinations,” said Mr Melvyn Chung, Principal of SIS. “He has studied with us for 7 years since Primary 4 and has participated as a student ambassador in various events such as the ASEAN-Myanmar Forum and as an intern in team-building trainings organised by our associate, RVi Institute.”
