Crescent Girls, CHIJ St.Nicholas Girls top GCE O-Level Exam
Posted: 09 January 2012 1505 hrs

SINGAPORE: Three students have topped last year's GCE O-Level examinations with 10 A1s each.

They are Lim Min from Crescent Girls' School, and Zhong Yingyi and Chai Yung Ci - both from CHIJ St Nicholas Girls' School.

The Education Ministry said they are among the 99.9 per cent of students awarded certificates for achieving one or more GCE O-Level passes.

A total of 36,955 school candidates sat for the examination.

95.3 per cent achieved three or more passes, while 81.9 per cent got five or more GCE O-Level passes.

In other results released Monday, Nur Fatima Baginda Ali from Bukit Panjang Government High School is the top Malay student with 7 A1s and 2 A2s.

Six students with 9 A1s each are the Top Indian Students.

They are Ritika Ramesh from Crescent Girls', S Manoj from Gan Eng Seng School, N Karthik, Sai Surya Yarlagadda and Varun Moorthy from St Joseph's Institution, and G Kiran from Victoria School.

The top Eurasian student is Keren Ann Henry from Methodist Girls' - with 7 A1s and 1 A2.

Amanda Chia Siew Hui from Holy Innocents' High School and Khoo Chit Hui from Monfort Secondary topped the Secondary 5 category with 4 A1s and 1 A2 each.

The Ministry said 48 schools also had at least one student scoring 7 A1s or more.

Some special performers have overcome physical disabilities and other challenges to get good grades.

One of them is Shalom Lim of Victoria School.

He suffers from muscular dystrophy and has very limited upper body movement.

But that did not stop him from scoring two A1s and three A2s.

He said he could not have done it without support from the school, as well as the Presiding Examiner.

"He was there all the time, and he helped me a lot by placing my hand on the table. Because of my weakness, I was unable to do it myself, but he was always there to help me, make sure I was comfortable before I started the paper. I am very thankful for that," said Shalom.

Victoria School's top student, Jervis Ong, scored 10 A1s despite the demise of his father and grandfather in 2010.

An ASEAN Scholar from Malaysia, he had to go home for a few months in 2010.

Jervis said: "After I came back, I missed out a lot of lessons and I actually thank many teachers who stayed after their work time to help me in subjects I was weaker in. So, thank you Victoria School."

and I suppose a little poem is in order to empathize with the feeling before collecting the results.

Waiting to receive our 'O’levels results

Now the time has come
And we’re seated in the hall
Waiting for our results
Oh that dreadful call!

I am fidgeting, I am nervous
I know not what to think
All the blissful holidays
Have passed by in a wink

And now we shall see
If our two years of labour
Have in fact
Produced fruits with any flavour

I know what I want
But I know not what I’ll get
And I simply cannot stand
This agonising suspense!

I want to know what I got
But in my fear I also do not
I can’t control my feelings
And feel as though I’m shaking

It’s fine for me to know
And it’s also fine not to know
But it’s this wait before knowing
Which I find so frightening!

So if you’re in charge of this
Please have some pity
And put a swift end
To my fearful misery!

RI and HCI COP is 3. VJC is 4. Tough for VJC to regain the top JC spot when it was ranked No 1 in 1995 and 2001. Can only remain as No 3.

Victoria School successfully admitted its first intake of Secondary 1 VCA IP students in January 2012. With the first intake of IP students, VS will offer both O-Level and IP tracks to our high-ability learners. The dual-track education structure allows for more porosity to cater to students with different abilities. Good students who are eligible for the IP or those who find themselves better suited for the O-Level track can make lateral transfers, thereby allowing our talented students to be nurtured via more customized learning.

VS remains committed to providing an excellent and holistic education in both O-Level and IP tracks to cater to students with different abilities and interests, thereby nurturing our Victorians to be Gentlemen, Professionals and Sportsmen who make tangible contributions to their family, work, community and nation. The students in VS will continue to experience the ethos and privilege of an all-boys education, and enjoy the full range of co-curricular activities such as sports, performing arts, uniformed groups, and Character & Leadership Education. All students will also have access to the different school programmes and facilities offered by the three VCA schools.
Class of 2011: All the Best!

We are extremely proud of the outstanding achievements attained by the Class of 2011. The students have successfully built upon the illustrious Victorian tradition for all-round excellence in education. The outstanding performances at the O level Examinations, the National Schools’ Sports and Games Competitions as well as the Singapore Youth Festival bear testimony to the students’ quest for performance excellence, the commitment of our staff, and the strength of the school in nurturing our top talents in the five developmental domains of moral, cognitive, physical, social and aesthetic. We wish the Class of 2011 the very best in their future endeavours!
