Student Guide
Dr Wong Yoke Chen
\u201cAmat Victoria Curam\u201d, a Latin phrase that means \u201cvictory \ue003avours those who take pains\u201d, is a
motto that I hold true and believe in wholeheartedly.

In today\u2019s society where instant grati\ue002cation and increasing simpli\ue002cation is popular, a course like the A-Level that employs traditional teaching and learning methods stands out as an anachronism, a concept that seems out o\ue003 place in modern times. Yes, we stick to old values emphasising the depth and breadth o\ue003 subjects taught and creating a \ue002rm bedrock o\ue003 \ue003undamental knowledge that underlies a worthwhile pre-university preparation. I would be the \ue002rst to admit that the A-Level course can o\ue003ten prove to be very challenging \ue003or the less industrious and resolute students.

But any place worth going to deserves the sincere e\ue001ort put in. Despite its reputation as the toughest pre-university course, our graduates have no regrets and will testi\ue003y that the pains taken have been worth it. I strongly advocate that one\u2019s achievement o\ue003 a goal is measured by the quality o\ue003 the endeavour taken to accomplish it. There are no shortcuts to true success.

Here at Sunway University College, my team o\ue003 highly experienced and dedicated lecturers aims to deliver the best A-Level education possible. With the right coaching, seemingly insurmountable intellectual concepts are made comprehensible. The emphasis is on making the learning experience enjoyable, memorable and ultimately enriching.

Having kept an un\ue003altering track record o\ue003 stellar A-Level results \ue003or the past many years, I believe that our A-Level academic team has and will continue to provide an exceptional educational experience \ue003or our students. I believe also that education goes beyond the mere acquisition o\ue003 paper quali\ue002cations. The pastoral care programme through our mentor-mentee system which we have been success\ue003ully implementing over the past 13 years speaks volumes o\ue003 our personal concern \ue003or each and every student. Various activities provide the avenue \ue003or our students to develop more than just their academic abilities. We encourage their creative talents and also cultivate leadership, social and communication skills as well as guide them in time management expertise.

To the Sunway A-Level team, education \u2013 in its original Latin meaning o\ue003 \u201ce-ducere\u201d or \u201cto lead out\u201d \u2013 is a concept that transcends mere paper grades. We aim to develop and to lead out the inherent talents, skills and character that are latent in our students. We believe in human potential, and that everyone \u2013 slow and \ue003ast learners alike \u2013 deserves an opportunity to be educated, to have his or her best traits developed.


CIE is one o\ue003 the world\u2019s leading providers o\ue003 international academic quali\ue002cations and is a part o\ue003 the University o\ue003 Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES). This renowned body has been developing and promoting its uniquely British system o\ue003 assessment around the world \ue003or almost 150 years.

The GCE A-Level quali\ue002cation places emphasis on in-depth knowledge, deep understanding, strong reasoning abilities and critical thinking. It is arguably the most widely recognised pre- university quali\ue002cation in the world, readily accepted as proo\ue003 o\ue003 superior academic ability \ue003or entry into world-class universities around the world.

CIE is the world\u2019s largest provider o\ue003 international educational quali\ue002cations with more than 1100 examination centres across the globe. Fi\ue003ty-odd such centres are currently operating in Malaysia alone. Any centre which proves its worth through a superior delivery system that produces excellent results in the twice-yearly examinations is accorded the status o\ue003 a Fellowship Centre. Only 4 centres in Malaysia have attained this elite status and Sunway is one o\ue003 them!

University o\ue001 Cambridge
International Fellowship Centre

The Fellowship Centre status awarded by CIE to our A-Level Programme in 2005 is a clear recognition o\ue003 our excellent delivery system and ensuing top-notch results on a world stage. We have a consistent track record o\ue003 outstanding academic per\ue003ormance and a string o\ue003 international awards won by our students.

In the June 2009 CIE Examination, our overall pass rate was 98.8% with 26% o\ue003 our students achieving three A-grades or more. In that assessment, our students topped the nation in Accounting, Biology and Law, while in Physics and Psychology, we produced the world\u2019s best! Such sterling per\ue003ormances are nothing new \u2013 recipients o\ue003 CIE Top Student awards have been regularly emerging \ue003rom within our ranks since 1998. To date, we have made similar \ue003orays into Biological Science, Business subjects, Mathematics, General Paper, Chemistry and Economics.

Sunway University College has been preparing students since 1994 \ue003or the General Certi\ue002cate o\ue003 Education (GCE) Advanced-Level quali\ue002cation through examinations set and assessed by the University o\ue003 Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
