This is a good article, especially for SPM or form 6 leavers. As for my batch SPM (2004), the top scorer that time was Nur Amalina Che Bakri. Now, she still studying in the medical school. I guess a lot of my friends, just started to build career, and some of them work hard to get the Master Degree or PhD.
Actually Malaysia have a lot of talent. It is proven that our student can be the best student when they go and study abroad.
But, having a straight A's in SPM or STPM does not mean that you can success in your career. SPM is just a ticket for the next level, college or university. But, I agree that SPM do helps me a lot to find a great job. but, it depends. Nowadays they don't simply depend on your results. They also check the personality, character, and the involvement in community. Without the criteria, well, it is hard to say..
But, based on the article, I am impress with Miss Wan Nadiah Wan Mohd. A graduate from Harvard. Also, got Msc in public Health Nutrition. Now, she is the director of bussiness development and corporate communications. She is so young and now she hold a director position?? wow..
I want to be like her too!
