Proof of Excellence

TAYLOR'S College students continue to lead the pack with outstanding results.

This year proved to be another record for the students of Taylor's College in the Cambridge A-Levels(CAL) and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme(IBDP).

Taylor's College congratulates each of its students for their commendable achievements. A total of 361 Cambridge ALevels students scored 3As and above in the recent June 2014 examinations, recording the highest number of top achievers in Malaysia.

Providing a balance between science and humanitiesbased subjects, CAL students at Taylor's College immerse themselves in a wide range of subjects.

Here, students are equipped with the tools, inspiration and motivation to acquire life skills, learning skills and leadership skills to succeed in university and achieve their career goals.

Following the steps of the CAL track record, the IBDP in Taylor's College recorded a 100% pass rate in the recent May 2014 examinations (world average 79%).

Twelve of the students scored above 40 points (world average score is 29 points) and one of the students, Hannah Khaw, achieved the perfect score of 45 points.

This is an extraordinary result as chances of achieving the perfect score is 0.15% worldwide.

IBDP is a two-year programme, designed to be academically and socially challenging, moulding students into balanced and internationally minded leaders who go beyond the norm.

"My best years in life were spent during IB diploma programme at Taylor's College," says Khaw.

"IB forced me to stretch out beyond my comfort zone to pursue knowledge beyond the subjects I was comfortable with, to develop salient links between vastly distinct fields and to think about how classroom theories could be relevant in the real world."

Khaw says she and her classmates went to Cambodia to help communities repair classroom roofs, build a library and prepare soil for fruit gardens.

It was a great chance for them to serve others and she says that the trip made a difference in her learning experience.

Khaw is currently studying in Columbia University in the United States. Taylor's College is the best preuniversity in Malaysia and the only college awarded the sixstar (outstanding) rating by the Ministry of Education Malaysia in the 2010/2011 and 2012/2013 MyQuest evaluation for the overall quality of learning.

Every year, Taylor's College successfully placed more than 1,000 of its students in the top 200 universities of the world, such as University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Harvard University, Columbia University, King's College London, London School of Economics, University ofToronto and University of Melbourne.
