An amazing feat, a class of Accountancy students proved that excelling as a team can be so much better than being on top alone.

Out of the 44, 9 were awarded as Summa Cum Laude, 20 Magna Cum Laude while 15 were awarded Cum Laude.

Accountancy is not “easy breezy”

One of the students from the outstanding class, Nor-Fatimah Cahar, shared that at studying Accountancy isn’t “easy breezy.” She said that they started with 16 sections of 640 BSA students but was left with 4 sections of 173 student in the end. The proud graduate said, “We've journeyed through hell and a lot of major breakdowns just to finish this race.”

Another student, Christian Job Martel also revealed that their journey wasn’t easy. He even said, “Honestly, I would not suggest taking up Accountancy to anyone; 5 years of struggle.” Martel admitted that it was his classmates that motivated him to push further. He said, “But it is the people. It is the people you meet that makes choosing Accountancy worth it.”

The diligent student acknowledged his classmates’ part in molding a better version of himself. He said, “The people who will struggle with you and encourage you to become a better and stronger version of yourself.”

“Accounting is not that fun. It is the people that makes every experience worth it,” he added.
