The 17-year old student from Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School, Petaling Jaya, earned the prestigious award from the Cambridge Assessment International Education during the recent Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, by gaining the highest standard mark in the world for International General Certificate of Secondary Education for Mathemathics (without coursework) and Additional Mathematics for the November 2018 examinations.
Commenting on his recognition, Andrew said,
“I am extremely honoured to have received this global recognition. I love maths because of how it challenges me to solve difficult problems and I am happy that my passion and hardwork has helped me achieve this truly memorable moment.
Learning wasn’t always easy for me and I really struggled with homework due to low concentration earlier on in my education. But things turned around for me thanks to the dedication, patience and encouragement of my parents, teachers and peers who motivated and encouraged me to never give up and always try my best,”
