Life@Kolej Yayasan Saad International School (KYSIS) – A-level

I was first enrolled in AUSMAT in Sunway College for about a month when my SPM results came out and that was when I decided to do my A-Levels at Kolej Yayasan Saad International School, Melaka (KYSIS). Frankly, I was quite apprehensive since this was the first time that KYSIS teaches A-Level. There was noContinue reading “Life@Kolej Yayasan Saad International School (KYSIS) – A-level”

Life@International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) – International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)

I first entered the International School of Kuala Lumpur as a student in 6th grade (form 2 equivalent). Previously coming from a British School background, the transition was admittedly difficult. At first I had to come to terms with quintessential American terms like “tardy” (which means late, not a contraction of retarded…), “cafeteria” (instead ofContinue reading “Life@International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) – International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)”

Life@MCKL – A-level

Image Source Methodist College Kuala Lumpur. I’d never even heard of it until my next door neighbour attended college there in 2012-13 while I was in the last two years of my secondary school. Looking back, I have no idea why I so confidently decided to do my A-Level at MCKL. The minute I heardContinue reading “Life@MCKL – A-level”

Life@TCSJ-Cambridge A-Level

College – the time I discarded my school uniform to immerse myself in enriching education, wearing an attire of my choice, that secreted the maximum amount of my brain juice. The time I evolved into an adult and took full responsibility of my educational life. The time I hiked up my pants to my chest,Continue reading “Life@TCSJ-Cambridge A-Level”
