Singapore Child Prodigy To Study In Malaysia University
Ainan Celeste Cawley, who is rejected by universities/education system in Singapore, has been accepted by HELP University College in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The family will relocate there as well, I guess. Wish him all the best!
Anyway, we tried everything we could in Singapore. We even asked to homeschool him, on many occasions, but permission was never granted. (We were always fobbed off with “We will revert to you shortly”…and then we would never hear from them – the Compulsory Education Unit – again.). After three years of it, we quietly gave up and started looking elsewhere for an education for Ainan.
Remarkably, Malaysia proved very responsive – and, through the wise advice of Zuhairah Ali, President of the National Association of Gifted Children of Malaysia – Ainan secured places at University Colleges in Malaysia, in a very short time…not much more than a week.
Of all the places on offer, we chose HELP University College, in Kuala Lumpur. It offered the best overall support of Ainan.
At HELP, Ainan will be taking an American Degree Programme – starting immediately. He will take Computer Science options, but also keep up his Chemistry. He will, in addition, be broadening his science foundation by adding A levels in Physics and Maths to his tally, simultaneously. He already has AS Level Chemistry, O level Chemistry and O level Physics, as well as having taught himself some degree of programming skills.
