Sharing from our high flyers

6B Leo, Cheung Ching To (Four 5** and Three 5*)

Leo Cheung received four 5** (English, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Economics). Being the Head Prefect of our school, an avid actor who took part in many school drama productions, and a committee member of the English Association, Leo had to arrange his time well for his studies and responsibilities. None of these posed a great challenge to him, however, because he has always been an effective learner since a young age.


Leo would look for mock exam papers online to test himself, and that was how he was able to build a solid foundation on knowledge. When asked how he managed to consolidate his language skills, he answered, “I like reading classic Chinese texts like Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio (聊齋誌異)! Doing extra writing practices helped too, as he would ask for teachers comments to seek improvement. To him, homework was not a chore but an opportunity to learn more and achieve more.


The DSE syllabus is demanding and on top of that, Leo had to juggle schoolwork and duties; does that mean he has to burn the midnight oil all the time? “Nope, I never work late into the night! This was said in such certainty that one could almost feel how determined and serious he was about his studies.


Leo has set his sight on CUHK Medicine. We wish him good luck!



6B Tom, Wong Fu Wa (Three 5**, Two 5* and Two 5)

Tom achieved 3 5** (Mathematics, Economics, and Chemistry) in the DSE. What is his secret of success?

Tutorial classes are popular among many Hong Kong students because their lessons are exam-oriented in nature, and they seem to guarantee satisfactory DSE results. Tom held a different opinion. He did attend one or two tutorials, but after that he thought it was better for him to be a self-reliant learner. His key of success was his proactive attitude towards learning. To make sure he could catch up with the learning progress, he would do more than enough, like finishing extra assignments and then asking for teachers’ feedback. This was as important as paying attention in class because he could learn what was not mentioned in lesson time; this provided him with more resources for self-improvement.


Tom is a strict observer of self-discipline. S5 and S6 are very hectic years for Hoi Ping students because they face numerous assignments, projects and ECAs. As a serious learner who did not settle for less, Tom always tried his best to finish his assignments despite the mounting workload. Besides, he never waited until tests and exams to clarify muddy concepts as he would start revision as early as possible.

Like Leo, Tom is also considering the possibility of joining CUHK and HKU’s Medicine programme. He looks forward to getting hands-on experience in the programme so as to find out where his interests lie.
