(a) How did you feel when you collected your results?
When I collected my GCE O-Level examination results, I was glad. I am extremely thankful to God for the results that He has blessed me with. All the hard work has indeed paid off!
(b) Are there any key people whom you owe your success to?
First of all, I would like to thank God for really seeing me through my O-Level journey, and for granting me the strength and resilience to cope with the stress that I experienced.
I also owe my success to my parents who supported me tremendously in my studies. My father motivated, taught and guided me in my studies while my mother ensured that I had sufficient rest in the midst of my busy schedule.
I am also grateful to my subject teachers who were patient, caring and willing to guide me. My friends have also been my pillar of strength as they continually encouraged me along this arduous journey. There are many others whom I owe my success too and I thank God for all of them!
(c) How did you manage your time between your commitment towards your studies and holding key appointments in your CCAs?
To better manage my time, I made sure that I did my homework promptly so that my workload would not snowball. I also created my own schedule which helped me to ensure that I completed my work within the given time frame so that I could have time to engage in recreational activities. As Charles Dickens once said, "My advice is to never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time." All of us have 86,400 seconds in a day. I believe that as long as we put each second to good use, we will be more productive.
(d) Do you have any advice for the 2017 batch of Secondary 4/5 students?
It may seem like it is going to be a tough year but trust me, it will all be over soon. Thus make sure that you use your time wisely and start your revision now! Do not be afraid to seek your teachers for help when doubts arise because they are more than willing to guide you. Even as you study hard, do get ample rest too so that you will be able to better focus in class. For the believers, don't forget to seek God in prayer and to glorify Him. I believe that all of you can do it! All the best in your preparation! Charge forward and never look back!
