CHIJ St Nicholas girl tops O levels again
Chia Pei Yun from CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School emerged as the top student in the 2010 GCE O-level examinations with 10 A1s. This is the second year running that a student from CHIJ St. Nicholas has topped the O levels.
The results were released at 2pm this afternoon.
And just like last year's top scorer from CHIJ St Nicholas, Pei Yun is not Singaporean but a Malaysian, reported the Shin Min Daily.
39 students scored at least 9 A1s this year; a total of 55 schools had students scoring 7 A1s or more.
Cresent Girls' Secondary School performed well this year, with 10 top scorers garnering 9 A1s.
98.9 per cent of a total of 37,655 school candidates who sat for the 2010 examinations were awarded their certificates, along with 88.7 per cent of a total of 3,926 private candidates.
