EVE Academy students typically achieve high Grade Point Average scores as well as attaining high scores in external exams due to the rigorous nature of the curriculum. Consequently, our students have achieved memberships at the prestigious National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) founded by Claes Nobel (Nobel Peace Foundation). Our student, Elijah John Bepono, who graduated with the US High School Diploma in 2011 at sixteen, was interviewed by Harvard University in December 2011. In pursuit of cutting edge research and development, he has now chosen to study Biomedical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus; in September 2012.
“Dear Elijah, My name is Nick Khaw and I am one of the interviewers on the panel of interviewers for Harvard College Admissions in Malaysia…..In your case, you studied in a learning academy which was listed as being based in Herndon, Virginia in the United States. To clarify, it is true that no student from Malaysia was given an interview in the sense that no student from a school in Malaysia was given an interview. In your case, your school was listed as being based in Virginia. The Harvard College Admissions views you, therefore, as a Malaysian student applying from a school in the United States, not as a student applying from a school in Malaysia. I hope this clears things up for you. Best, Nicholas Khaw; Khazanah Research and Investment Strategy (KRIS); Khazanah Nasional Berhad” – via email, April 2012.
As another feather in EVE Academy’s cap, Kayleigh Tan gained entry to the prestigious UK, University of Cambridge’s Summer School programme after achieving her NSHSS membership owing to her perfect GPA score of 4.0 in July 2013.
