Junting Yeung, a year 12 student at Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS) was recently awarded the Top in China Award for his International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in Math. Yeung achieved a score of 10A* (that’s 10 A stars across 10 different subjects), an excellent all-around score, and his outstanding math score earned him this prestigious honor. This is not Yeung’s first outstanding mathematical achievement; last year he received an Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) Award in Math.
In addition to his adroitness with numbers, Yeung is a busy guy. His after-school schedule contains football, volleyball, orchestra, and jazz band. Yeung also works for Unit-E, the student-run magazine, and established the Re-Cycling club, in which he and the club’s members cycle around Beijing’s public spaces and clean up litter and recyclables. Yeung, who is Australian, intends to maintain his focus on Unit-E and Re-Cycling this year, and hopes to run this year’s 30-hour famine at YCIS, which will raise money for the Seeds of Hope charity.
