Alvin Choong is the top SPM scorer in the State and perhaps in the nation

 

Alvin Choong Ching Yek scores 12 straight A1’s in all the papers ( not including another A1 in his English 1119 paper) that he sat in SPM 2001. This is the best result in the state and possibly in the nation ( still waiting for confirmation from other states ). All 238 candidates who sat for SPM pass the examination. Hence, PFS is one of the twelve schools in the state that score 100% passes.

I would like to thank God and lots of people for this achievement, namely the school, the teachers, parents, and friends. I am ecstatic and overwhelmed, and at this moment no words can describe the emotions I am feeling now. But it is these emotions that I hope juniors can experience eventually. It is important to stick to the style that suits you best, but no matter what style you use, you must still study. And not just up to SPM only, learning is a life-long process. My message to students of Penang Free School is that never lose sight of what you want to achieve. It is this determination that will pull you through the tough times – and you will go through those tough times. Currently, I am undecided on my path in life, but I have a keen interest in Actuarial Science. In conclusion, for those who encounter problems, we would be willing to lend you a helping hand. Good luck in future undertakings.

First of all, I thank God for giving me the courage and confidence in facing my exam. I would like to express my gratitude to my parents for supporting me all this while and for giving me the freedom in my studies. I would also like to thank the dedicated teachers of PFS for the excellent job and their commitments to the students. I cannot deny that my friends also played a very important role in my school life. My classmates have created an environment for me to study and strive for the best. Through my years in PFS, I have developed a sense of responsibility to myself as part of the school’s community. PFS is truly a great school and I hope the present Frees will continue to uphold the name of our beloved alma mater. Last but not least,

“The roots of education may be bitter,
but the fruits are sweet
Strive for excellence always!”
