Studying should become a habit that youngsters enjoy, according to an outstanding pupil. Cheung Wai-ki, a science student from King's College, obtained nine straight As in the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) this year. Wai-ki scored A(1)s in Economics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Principles of Accounts, and A(2)s in Chinese Language and English Language. Wai-ki telephoned his parents soon after receiving his result slip to inform them of the good news. 'I was surprised especially about getting grade A in Chinese Language,' the 17-year-old said. He stressed it was important to do daily revision, 'Otherwise, there will be problems as the examinations approach,' Wai-ki said He said there was no need for students to burn the midnight oil during the examination period. He had eight hours' sleep every night because he was well-prepared for the exam. 'I am glad that there was no pressure on me from my parents or friends. I just tried my best,' Wai-ki said. 'I believe that studying can become a habit which can even help students relax after school.' Being a student, he said education was one of his top priorities. Wai-ki, whose favourite subjects are mathematics and additional mathematics, said: 'I participated in activities organised by the school's mathematics society last year in order to enhance my knowledge.' Wai-ki likes to spend his free time playing basketball or football with friends. He also enjoys playing computer games at home. He has still not taken any definite decision about his future, but said he preferred to study in Hong Kong rather than go abroad. 'This is because I think that I am still not independent enough either in life or thinking, so I hope I can develop myself in these areas in the coming year,' Wai-ki said.
