KUNAK: Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Kunak registered an increase in passing percentage of the Form Three Assessment (PT3) results announced Thursday. 

“This year’s PT3 results improved by 42.86 per cent passes, compared to just 27.88 per cent the year before,” said its Principal Abdul Hussien Omar. 

The “Strive for Excellence” slogan displayed at the school’s entrance point has been a source of inspiration for students in line with the rural school’s transformation programme. 

Although the overall grade dropped this year to 3.7 compared to 3.57 last year, the number of students graduating excellently increased with the quality of achievement. 

Nineteen students obtained excellent results.  Three scored 8As in all subjects, namely Emerentiana Laimin, Hee Li Lian and Natalie Richard Mekules.

Among those who scored 9As, 1B, are Mohamad Danish Ahmad, Nur Aleeya Usman, Nur Mashitah Mohd.Hamzah, and Nurul Anis Masitah Saidin.

Also scoring good grades are Kelvin Lee Zheng Li (8A,1B), Aliya Natasyah AK Steven and Nurfarah Fathin Abd.Wahab (8A,2B), Nurul Nabira Meching and Rasyidah Ramli (8A,1C) and Mohd. Firdaus Simanjunta (8A,1B,1D).

Those who scored 7As are Nur Azilah Sudin, Nursyafiqah Anibatil @ Aring, Nuraisah Ibnu, Azura Rafiullah, Sitti Amina Yusof and Nur Hidayah Junaid.

According to Hussein, six subjects showed an increase in the percentage of passes, namely Bahasa Melayu (written), English Language, Arab Language, Islamic Studies, Mathematics and Science. 

Overall, the achievement is also due to support from various programmes carried out by the school and the Parents and Teachers Association. 

He said the programmes included Learning and Facilitation in the Classroom, Tokoh Gemilang, Perkampungan Akademik programme, and Motivational Tuition, among others. 

He also attributed it to the collaboration and commitment between teachers, school staff and parents, as well as students’ efforts and dedication in making each programme or activity a catalyst for successful achievement.
