Somewhere over the rainbow where academic brilliance flies, students at Sunway College's Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) programme, once again, have conjured enchanting results in the November sitting of the Western Australia Certificate of Education (WACE) examination.

An outstanding 32% of students clinched the prestigious distinction of ranking in the top 10% globally, accompanied by the remarkable attainment of seven world awards.

Furthermore, 55% of AUSMAT graduates achieved an ATAR of 80 and above, placing them in the top 20% worldwide; and 74% secured a position in the top 30% globally, boasting outstanding ATAR scores of 70 and above.

Impressively securing a position in the top 0.15% globally with an ATAR score of 99.85, Kho attests, “Through Sunway AUSMAT, I have learnt to become more resilient and optimistic in the face of challenges.”

Further proving her achievements, Kho was also honoured with the Special Subject Certificate of Excellence in Chemistry.

Nyam May Anne and Yee Shinnie, two other recipients of the Special Subject Certificate of Excellence in English as an Additional Language or Dialect, echo the sentiment that consistency is the key to success in the AUSMAT programme.

As a parting piece of advice, Nyam suggests, “When studying, find a method that works for you and stick to it. Alternatively, switch it up sometimes to keep it interesting, just like your choice of study area or the music you listen to.”
