Top achievers credit hard work and support for results

The Star ( 13 March 2009 )

KUALA LUMPUR: There is no short cut to it. A group of SPM high achievers attributed their success to hard work and lots of support from loved ones.

For hearing-impaired N. Aghilan 17, his 10 1As and two 2As made him the top special student in the country, and also the top student of SMK Jalan Bukit Kajang. In a phone interview, father M. Narayanan said Aghilan, with 70% loss of hearing, would go through the subject matter days before it was taught in class.

“Despite wearing a hearing aid, he still needed to sit in the front row and teachers had to face him when they spoke so he could read their lips. His friends and teachers were a real help,” said Narayanan.

He said Aghilan hoped to secure a scholarship to study software engineering.
