Recently, Year 12 students from the Australian International School Malaysia (AISM) completed their Higher School Certificate (HSC) examinations, leading to impressive tertiary entrance ranks. We are proud to announce that our student, Alexander Kam, achieved the highest possible ATAR - 99.95 (only 48 HSC students globally achieved this score). He has received an All-Rounder Award, Top Achiever Award for three subjects, a Distinguished Achiever Award for all six of his subjects and a result in the highest band possible in these High School Certificate (HSC) courses.
There were also 13 Individual Students who were Distinguished Achievers (achieved the highest possible band in one or more subjects) in 12 different subjects. According to statistics reported in The Sydney Morning Herald recently, AISM’s success rate (11.81%) has soared well above the average score of 5.47% for schools in NSW.
Our Year 10 students, Yuin Yie Wong and Megan Yap also won Distinguished Achievers Awards for Software Design and Development as accelerated students - along with Alex's Top Achiever in Software Design and Development.
AISM would like to congratulate each and every student for their remarkable achievement in the 2020 HSC! Given they endured so much more difficulty than others in NSW during lockdowns, their successes are all the richer.
