Millennia Institute student Feera Syaqirah Saaduddin, 19, sharing her joy with her father, Mr Saaduddin Abdul Rahim, a 47-year-old Certis Cisco officer, and mother Fauziah Atan, a 45-year-old accounts assistant, after getting her A-level results yesterday. Of the 13,582 students who sat the national exam last year, 93.1 per cent scored at least three H2 passes, and a pass in General Paper or Knowledge and Inquiry. This is the country's best showing since the A-level curriculum was revised about a decade ago. It surpassed the previous high of 91.4 per cent, which was set last year by the class of 2014.
