Welcome to Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur (International)
Message from Principal
We are very proud with the results of our first cohort of our 119 Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (CIE IGCSE) students in the recent November 2016 and May 2016 examinations and of our 189 CIE Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint students.
With our November 2016 IGCSE Exams, we have an outstanding record of 82.26% Distinctions (A*&A), placing us amongst the Top 60 Schools in the Best Schools UK League Table of Independent Schools’ May 2016 GCSE results and perhaps amongst the top in Malaysia as well.
83.19% of our students scored between 9 to 5 Distinctions. 41% of our students achieved straight Distinctions (A* & A), of which 9% of them actually achieved straight Super Distinctions (A*).
Our Science Department produced great results with 96% of our students scoring Distinctions in Chemistry, 92% in Physics and 88% in Biology. We also had 62% of them scoring Distinction in Combined Science.
Our ICT Department also produced good results with 90% of them scoring Distinctions. Following that are the subjects Mathematics 88%, Economics 86%, Accounting 81%, and Additional Mathematics 78%.
The total Distinctions for First Language English is 67%. Only about 11% scored a C&D for English so the majority did well with a Distinction or B. History brought in 50% Distinctions.
This cohort also did us proud in their May 2016 IGCSE results with a stellar result of 100% A* for Foreign Language Malay.
Our students scored perfect marks in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics with four different students, two students in each subject achieving a perfect score of 100%. Our students’ other top scores are 99% in Foreign Language Malay; 98% in Chemistry and Economics; 97% in Biology, Physics and Chinese as Second Language; 96% in Accounting; 95% in First Language English; 94% in Combined Science and First Language Chinese; 93% in ICT; and 92% in History.
Our first cohort of 189 CIE CS1 Checkpoint students also performed exceedingly well in October 2016 with many of them attaining a perfect score of 6.0 – 95% of them received a perfect score for Maths, 55% in Science and 17% in English. 14% of our students succeeded in acquiring a perfect score in all three subjects. We are also proud of those who have worked hard and achieved the highest band of Excellent (6.0-5.0) – a stellar 100% in Math, 95% in Science, and 51% in English. Wonderfully, we have over 50% of our students in the Excellent band for all three subjects.
In the May 2016 IGCSE Exams, a stellar 100* of the 118 students scored A* for the Malay Foreign Language subject. We also had some students taking optional subjects of First Language Chinese where 80% scored distinctions and Second Language Chinese with 92% received distinctions.
Considering that this is our first cohort of IGCSE students, the school is indeed very proud of them! We are thankful to God Almighty who has provided us with the right direction in this switch to become an international school, for the parents’ support in journeying with us in this period of transition and the ability to prepare the students well to take the respective examinations. The training which the teachers went through were certainly invaluable, and the teachers also took on the right attitude to teach the students well. Thus, everyone played an important role in ensuring this success.
Let me congratulate all the students for the hard work that they had put in to produce these wonderful results. When we look at the League Table for the UK May/June GCSE results, where only the top 100 schools are featured on the table, Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur (International) can indeed proudly say that we are comparable to the top 60 schools there (they do have a few thousand schools in the UK). Hence I would not be surprised if we are among the top 10% of the international schools in Malaysia.
I do believe with God’s grace and blessings, we will continue to strive to go Above and Beyond in all that we do in the school whilst steadfast in upholding our vision of “Education with Mission, Excellence and Compassion”.
