MUKAH: Four first-batch students from Mara Junior Science College (MRSM) Mukah yesterday created history by scoring 9 straight As in Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2011 examination.

The four top scorers were Easter Hennie Siyu Henry, Fabian Davien Nicholas, Sylviana Jones and Vivienne Jane Kenneth who scored top marks in all nine subjects, namely Bahasa Malaysia, English, Pendidikan Moral, History, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

They were among the 46 candidates from the school’s first intake taking their SPM since opening some four years ago.

Principal Azman Manap confirmed that MRSM Mukah successfully achieved a GPS (School Average Grade) of 2.31 and recorded a 100 per cent passing rate.

Azman also said that he was happy with the school’s achievement which proved that rural (Bumiputera) students were also good in science and mathematics subjects, comparable to those in urban areas.

“We are happy with our result. Because despite the fact that we (MRSM Mukah) are the farthest MRSM from town, our students still could score good results in Mathematics and Biology (which are core subjects for students in Science stream) and also English,” said Azman, admitting that there was still room for improvement.

Meanwhile, Easter told The Borneo Post that apart from her teachers and friends, she was also most thankful to her father Henry Siyu, a reporter with New Sarawak Tribune here, and mother Jennifer Amir for their strong support and encouragement. When asked on her ambition, the eldest of four siblings answered softly: “I have to think and talk to my parents first.”
