A student shocked everyone when he scored 8 A+s and 1 A, making him one of the 8,436 students who scored straight A’s in their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations.
The Maktab Rendah Sains Mara (MRSM) student from Taiping, Perak shared a viral tweet of his previous Add Maths results where he scored 38/100 in his first test next to the SPM grades he got. He told mStar,
“I’ve always had a problem with Additional Mathematics. Honestly, I’ve never gotten a good mark for this subject since Form Four.
“Only God knows how low I felt in comparison with friends who did much better than me. During the SPM trial examinations, I only got a B.”
Lumrah manusia, semua mesti akan merasa kegagalan. Failure itself is subjective to every one of us. What makes us different is how we bounce back.
Untuk siapa yang tak dapat expected results tu, it's normal untuk bersedih, but jangan lama lama. Heads up, and hit back hard. 🤘🏼 pic.twitter.com/7vJHfCSJNH

Zarif Azri Azizul spoke about the sacrifices he needed to make to achieve such a result.
“I spent the time to master Additional Mathematics, and it involved sacrificing some things. I used to play rugby every evening but I reduced the time spent on it.
“I paid attention to this subject. If I studied topic A today, it’s topic B tomorrow, and the next day I will revisit the topics prior to those to see how far my comprehension is.”
This is his advice for everyone who seems to be afraid of failure:
“Failing is normal, everyone has experienced failure including me but we have to push ourselves to be better. If you didn’t get the mark you wanted don’t be sad for too long. Instead, think positively and pick yourself up to improve your weaknesses.”
