KUCHING: Bidayuh student, Aezzra Marvin Vincent, brought honour to Malaysia when he was recognised as the top scorer in the world for Mathematics by Cambridge Assessment International Education recently.

Today, Aezzra, 21, received a RM5,000 education incentive from Assistant Transport Minister Datuk Dr Jerip Susil during a simple handover ceremony.

Aezzra scored the highest mark in the world in Mathematics for the Cambridge Assessment International Examination (Advanced Subsidiary Level) July 2019 examinations.

Aezzra completed his German A-Level Preparatory Programme at the German-Malaysian Institute in Kajang, Selangor. He also passed his German language examination.

“I was supposed to attend a six-month German language class in Germany but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I attended online classes and passed the examination,” said Aezzra, whose father is from Kampung Giam, Padawan and mother from Kampung Engkeroh, Serian.

“I will study hard at the university in Germany and make full use of the opportunities given to me to excel in my studies,” he said.

He said his goal in life was to just to find a way to give back to the community by developing something new in any kind of sector.

Azerra, who loves Science and Mathematics since he was young, thanked his parents for nurturing his interest in these subjects.
