One of the top scorers this year, Mechina Wang once questioned herself during the examination. However, with the encouragement from her classmates, she put herself back on track. Excelled in the field of Mathematics and Science, Mechina recalled, "We would create revision notes with our expertise and share. Alongside the learning materials from our teachers, all these served as motivation, especially when physical classes were suspended." Another top scorer, Enoch Cheng expresses his gratitude to YCIS's teachers, "They allow me to explore my interest outside the classroom, such as establishing a student-led club promoting the environmentally friendly lifestyle. Thank you Ms Sam Sze Yin-hung, our Chinese Co-Principal and fellow teachers, I can meet people with the same passion for widening my horizon."
