21As for SPM 2007 Best Student

Share

The SPM 2007 best student was announced today and it goes to a down to earth kid from SMKA Yan, Azali Azlan who broke all previous SPM records by scoring staggering 20 1As and one 2A. The previous record was set by Nur Amalina Che Bakri from SMK Ulu Tiram who made headlines after scoring 17 1As in SPM 2004. Azali is the only student in Malaysia who took 21 subjects in SPM 2007 and received the award from Education Director-General, Datuk Alimuddin Mohd Dom.

This time around, 1,072 candidates obtained 1A in all subjects, compared to 1,280 in the previous year. This bunch of candidates is the first batch of students who commenced enrollment in Science and Mathematics subjects using English medium since Form 1 in 2003.

SPM Best Student 2007 - Azali AzlanI think it is fair to say the race for getting the number of As in SPM has become insanely crazy. The Ministry of Education advices students to take between 8 to 10 subjects, but many have gone beyond 10.

But the most touching part is to hear the comment from Azali’s mother, who humbly said the following after the award giving ceremony:

“Biarlah Azali membuat pilihan sendiri tentang kerjayanya, yang penting, dia kekal sebagai orang yang beriman dan tak lupakan ibu bapanya.”

“Let Azali decides what he wants to do with his career, the important thing is, he remains as a faithful God servant and will not forget his parents”

Azali intends to pursue his studies in Engineering field either in Britain or United States. Another candidate, Quek Hai Ren from SMK Hwa Lian, Pahang also received award for scoring 16 1As.

All the best to Azali, Quek and other SPM leavers in shaping up your career. If you are not sure what to do next, click here.
