There is no elevator to success; you have to take the stairs

"My memories of Tenby date back to when I began my A Levels as a SiWu scholar in Cohort 10 – the largest cohort at the time. I keenly remember all my teachers being extremely supportive of the progress I made and always being willing to go the extra mile to explain a concept until I thoroughly understood it. As a result, my confidence soared and I relished all my lessons.

Spurred on by my results, I applied for medicine at both local and foreign universities, hoping to gain admission. Imagine my utter amazement when I found out I had successfully obtained the prestigious RCSI-UCD Scholarship to study medicine in Ireland, at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland! Fast forward three years, and I’ve taken the opportunity to study an intercalated Masters in Clinical Neuroscience at the world-renowned King’s College London. Again, this opportunity would never have been possible but for the solid foundation provided by my teachers at Tenby.

For those who are currently studying towards a brighter future, I would like to share some advice with you. Firstly, never stop believing. Dreams can only be accomplished if you are willing to believe that your dreams can come to fruition. Secondly, live the life you want. Do not let your parents, teachers or friends dictate where and what you should pursue for your career. They can offer practical advice, but ultimately the decision should be yours to make. Thirdly, never say die. Keep fighting and soon enough, your efforts will be suitably rewarded. As the saying goes; if at first you do not succeed, try, try, and try again. Lastly, learn to accept failure. No one is successful without having made countless blunders in between. Learn from these mistakes and never repeat the same mistake twice."

"Having spent almost 13 years in Tenby Schools Ipoh, from primary school education all the way to the A Levels programme, my experiences there have played a huge part in my personal growth and development. Good teaching quality and small class sizes helped me excel academically. In particular, the Mathematics and Physics subjects in A Levels provided me a strong foundation to pursue an engineering degree, and the knowledge still serves me well in my current endeavours.

My years in Tenby were not confined to just studies within the classroom. Activities outside the classroom were varied and enjoyable. I got the opportunity to participate in a Shakespearean drama during my time in the Sixth Form and that is an experience that I will always remember. I am also honoured to have served as Deputy Head Prefect of the school towards the end of my secondary school education and as Treasurer of the Sixth Form Council.

I am now an Aerospace Engineering graduate from The University of Manchester and am currently studying for a Masters in Data Science at the University of Sydney to enhance my career prospects. My plan is to pursue a career as a data analyst or a data scientist after I graduate."

Cohort 10 (CIE A-Levels 2014/2015)
Chan Weng Kit

My memories of Tenby date back to when I began my CIE A-Levels as a SiWu scholar in Cohort 10 – the largest cohort at the time. The A-Levels programme is well known for its rigorousness and it would sometimes feel a bit daunting. Fortunately, all my teachers were extremely supportive of the progress I made and were always willing to go the extra mile to explain a concept until I thoroughly understood it. As a result, my confidence soared and I relished all my lessons. I finished my A2 examinations in November 2015, obtaining excellent results for my CIE A-Levels. This is a testament to the dedication and sacrifice of my teachers and for this I cannot thank them enough.
