KUCHING, June 8: 18-year-old Kai Ern of  is one of the ten students from various schools in Sarawak who obtained 11 straight A+ in all the subjects she took in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2022 examinations.

Teo, who has been excelling in her studies since primary school, was a little surprised as she claimed she did not expect to get such results.

“(The results) were beyond my expectations, so I thank God for giving me this blessing.

“I want to extend my deepest gratitude to my parents and family members as they have always given me emotional support when I was struggling,” she told DayakDaily after receiving her certificate from Sarawak Education director Datu Dr Azhar Ahmad, who officially announced the SPM results at SMK Green Road today.

She also thanked her school teachers and principal Chee Hue Yang, who she said was always there for her when she needed assistance in her studies.

Teo believed that she would do well in languages and science subjects such as physics, but was surprised that she did well in biology and additional mathematics, which she considered challenging.

“I did not expect to get an A+ in these two subjects as there were very challenging.

Teo, the youngest of three siblings, said she chose SMK St Elizabeth as she followed in her older sister’s footsteps.

She revealed that the teachers were kind, caring and concerned about students’ academic achievement.

Teo said she would like to further her education and apply for more scholarships to pursue his studies related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.

She hopes to enter the engineering profession in the future, and she advised students who are sitting for this year’s SPM examinations that education is important, and to work hard.

“But there must be a balance in our studies, and do take the time to indulge in our favourite pastimes when free so we do not get stressed out.

“I like music in my free time as it helps me to relax,” she said.

Teo is one of the students from twenty schools throughout Sarawak invited to receive their SPM certificates at SMK Green Road for their excellent results and achievements. — DayakDaily
