Published by SchoolAdvisor | Sep 07, 2021

IIUM Schools is committed to providing the best educational experience for A-Levels students. Find out how they fare during the height of the pandemic.

IIUM A-Levels is one of the renowned A-Levels preparation centres in Kuala Lumpur. Built-in a conducive area close to the university itself, it is a beautiful institution with an outstanding academic record using world recognised Cambridge curriculum (CIE) in streams like Science, Arts and Humanities.

Today, a virus has changed the world. It has shaped our lives and now we need to learn to live with the new normalcy. With the spread of the Coronavirus, our lives have been disrupted in many aspects, social, economic, health, political and education grounds.

What will be the role of educators in addressing the crisis caused by the pandemic?

Who would have thought that a mutant virus could crash the world in many ways and result in all people being locked up inside their homes? Yet, here we are, in this situation and it is time for us to come forward and take charge. So, how do we fight with an enemy like Covid-19? The answer is simple: by being focused, by being prepared, by being sensitive, by becoming aware. Fighting against the virus requires everyone to work together, be it on a professional level, working from home, or teaching online classes and other activities.

Teaching from home has taught us how to accommodate the needs of education

The educators need to focus on things that they were already doing before the pandemic. All that matters to us, as educators, is to maintain the teaching and learning online with the students and making sure their education is not neglected. Education is the most important thing for our youth and children. After all, one cannot deny that these young people are the drivers of change. With education, they are the ones who will shape the future. Hence, they should use the time to learn effectively and must keep on following their dreams. 

By conducting online classes, we are making sure the students are on the right academic track. We are the ones to steer education direction in our students under the new light, in this pandemic. We encourage them to learn, to be critical thinkers, to understand their passions and come forward with their talents. Time and again, it has been proven that youth are the ones to come forward, to take charge and changed the course of history. For example, Malala Yousafzai, who took a bullet through her head to fight for educating women in Pakistan and becoming an inspiration for millions of women around the globe who were denied rights; Mark Zuckerberg, who established a highly useful, world huge phenomenon Facebook, be it someone as young as Greta Thunberg who protested in front of the Swedish Parliament building, giving rise to worldwide concentration on environmental issues like Global Warming, as well as Jamie Margolin who founded Zero Hour, a non-profit youth organization dedicated to creating entry points, training, and resources for new young activists and organizers wanting to take concrete action around climate change, or Marley Dias, an activist who fights against racism, started her organization to increase access to and recognition of books with Black female protagonists.

Students take up the challenges at A-Levels

We welcome the new intake to the academic year of 2021/21. College life exposes students to a new environment where they have to learn new things and face new challenges by themselves. As we know, students spend half of their young lives in school, and thus they get comfortable living in that environment. While A-Levels preparation is for two years only, there will be many new challenges and lessons for the students. Rest assured, teachers and administrators are there always, to protect and guide them.

In college life, students experience a unique environment in which they get a chance to shape their future careers by making the right decisions and studying hard. A-Levels is not only about academics, but also about the overall development of an individual through various activities and challenges.

The students who join us will enjoy college life and they will expose to many curricular activities and events at the school. One of the best things about college life is that they get a new experience every day not only with the study but other new experiences. Here in A-Levels, one gets a chance to make their own career decisions. Apart from deciding the course and stream, an individual gets a chance to build his/her confidence by being a part of various societies and events that take place all year.

College Life is always a remarkable and exciting time in a person's life, and our students always enjoy their learning here. College Life teaches them many things and builds their confidence to face new challenges and struggles in future. Instead of just focussing on the study, a person must also participate in other activities and socialise as much as possible in his/her college life as all these things help in the overall development of a person.
