Sinaran Students Achieve A Star Rating
Starting this year 2010, Cambridge GCE A-Level student are given A star rating if they obtain 90 marks and above in their individual subjects, while 80-89 marks would be given an A. The reclassification of the A grade has inspired Sinaran students to aim for the stars and it was therefore a great day of rejoicing for the "IS Family" when the results were released recently.
5 Students achieved straight 4A*s while another 10 who also achieved 4s had a combination of A*s and As. 14 others achieved 3As while another 7 achieved 2As.
An elated Mdm Lim Khoon Chin, CEO of Institut Sinaran congratulated all the students for their excellent performance and the lecturers for their undivided commitment and dedication to prepare the students well for the exam. However, Mdm Lim added," IS is sad that some students did not achieve their full potential because they were lacking in self discipline and motivation and were therefore not consistent in their efforts to strive for excellence." She further encouraged the students to continue to persevere and strive to do better when they go on to universities. For those who may not be able to get a place in university for the course of their choice, they should not give up but to give themselves a second chance by retaking the exam to better their grade, she added.
