One tip both top Mingming and Elis shared for doing well in the A levels is knowing when to stop studying.
Elis says she continued going to church regularly even during her most busy and stressful exam period.
Said Mingming: "They have to know that leisure (time) is important; study during you optimum hours, and have a break every day."
But a cycling break during the exam period did not turn out well for Temasek Junior College student Kee Chuan Kai*.
He fractured both elbows when he got into an accident while cycling at the East Coast park after his second paper.
However, he not only managed to complete all his other exam papers, but scored an impressive six distinctions out of seven subjects when the results were announced today.
