In the recent release of June 2019 ACCA examination results, three TAR UC students emerged top in Malaysia and among the best in the world with their impressive scores.
Tim Wei Yinn and Yong Kar Jun, both TAR UC Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) students, emerged as the Top Affiliate in Malaysia (ranked 6th in the world) and 2nd Top Affiliate in Malaysia (ranked 7th in the world) respectively. Kar Jun also came in top in Malaysia (ranked 6th in the world) for the Advanced Taxation paper.
Another Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) student, Lau Jia Yi, took the honour of being the top in Malaysia (4th in the world) for Advanced Performance Management Paper. For Jia Yi, this enviable achievement was not the first time as she had previously placed top in Malaysia and ranked 4th in the world for the Strategic Business Leader paper in the December 2018 ACCA examinations.
“I did not expect to achieve anything this time so I was genuinely surprised when I received the notification from ACCA,” said Jia Yi. “Achieving such good results the first time was already a big achievement for me. Being able to obtain an award for the second time is really a blessing. I hope to gain as much exposure as possible to increase my knowledge in different industries.” Jia Yi will be entering the workforce this November as an audit associate.
After coming through with flying colours, Wei Yinn and Kar Jun both shared that their achievements were a result of hard work and determination. “I went through the whole syllabus and tried my best to understand it and not just memorise it,” said Wei Yinn. “This to me was something very important as it made it easier for me to recall important things needed during the exam.”
Both students credited TAR UC for helping them excel in the ACCA examinations and thanked their lecturers for the support they had shown.
Kar Jun also related that TAR UC’s internally assessed programme had provided him with the fastest route to obtain his ACCA qualification. “I plan to kick-start my career in corporate taxation which is something that I wish to specialise in in the future,” he said.
