The day of truth - SPM result announcement


As-salam and bid an awesome day readers!



21 Mac. Tarikh yang confirm geng lepasan SPM '12 catat siap siap kat kalender free gift pasaraya Mydin mahupun dalam kalendar iPhone memasing. Ceh iPhone siap. So lepas berjuang berhabisan ngan semangat kamikaze gituh semata nak mengadap SPM, tarikh nilah yang akan bagitau segala hasil yang kitorang telah striving for the the entire time at the secondary school.

So amacam?

Wehhh of course laa cuak gilaak! OTW to skolah from Sungai Petani tu, aku tak berhenti menggigil, berdebo takleh nak cakap laa Kak Ton ooi. So atas highway PLUS tu aku just duduk senyap sepi, sambil tu berzikir selawat diam-diam. The only things that can make me feel calmer at that point.

But the day before, dengar dari rumour, KUPSIS dapat placing no.1 in Kedah, ngan 50 orang straight A's and 5 straight A+'s! Tapi nak percaya ni pun takdelah sangat, sebab semua benda ni tak official lagih. Kena tunggu tuan pengetua announce dalam dewan tu barulah boleh percaya. Tapi terdetik gak dalam hati, kalau betul lah sampai 50 orang straight A's, harap-harap aku termasuklah gak dalam kelompok 50 orang tu, insyaAllah..




The night before tu aku ade call cikgu Aishah. Cikgu Aishah siap pesan lagi suruh pakai smart-smart, lawa-lawa sebab esok pengarah pelajaran Kedah nak datang kat sekolah lagi. Wartawan pun siap cakap nak datang buat liputan kat sekolah. Woah seriusly?! Surely something big gonna happen tomorrow! Excited dahh

Sampai je kat entrance skolah, dah nampak dah banner ni tergantung megah gitu:


eh cepat gila banner ni siap doe


So rumour the day before tu memang ternyata official! Woahh hepi tak terkata, sampai spot nombor 1 KUPSIS sapu tahun ni! Eh kejap, tapi list 50 straight A's achiever tu tak announce lagih. So feeling time tu bercampur baur, hepi pun ada, nervous pun ada. Dalam hati tak berhenti berdoa, moga mogalah aku dapat genggam slip exam 10As! Or even  10A+ maybe? InsyaAllah..

So aku sampai kat skolah around 11 am, tapi announcement result tu tak mula lagi lah pulak. So start lah cari member geng nerdies yang study sesama dedulu, jumpa juniors yang makin dah up gituh, teachers yang still maintain muda dan aneka lagi nostalgia skolah tengah bendang. Memacam jugak dah berubah kat member aku nih, yang kurus dah berisi sikit dah, yang kecik still kecik tak berubah pape, yang start berkopiah dan berjanggut pun ada lah.

So when sir pricipal walked into the hall, semua pakat diam nak dengar announcement result. Huwarghh this is the moment of truth! So this is what KUPSIS achieved in the SPM 2012 exam :

  • No.1 school in Kedah! (yeeha we beat Jenan!)
  • 50 straight A's
  • 5 straight A+'s
  • 100% passed in all subjects (for 3 consecutive years)
  • 12th in SBP's overall
  • 17th in Malaysia

We're on the top 12! Woah from 1-11 they all SBP-SBT
but we're just a "normal SBP". How great is this!


Woah what an achievement! So proud with all of us for producing this superior result! Then the announcement was started with the straight A+'s achievers. I'm really on high hope waiting for my name to be announced by sir principal. And here goes the list:

  • Atmaraaj  (10A+)
  • Dania Sahira (9A+)
  • Khairul Azrie (9A+)
  • Aiman Naim (9A+)
  • Hasrul Reza (9A+)

As expected, Atmaraaj-the mastermind of KUPSIS!


And he's the one & only 10A+ achiever

And that's it, the five of them. Dalam hati, "its okay lah, still ade 45 spots to be filled in". So before lagi 45 orang straight A's rojak (combination of A+,A,A-) tu nak announced, ade break lah pulak. Ya Allah lagi tension dibuatnya. So dalam break tu pergilah jumpa ngan kengkawan yang dapat straight A+'s tuh. Punyalah bangga tengok result diorang tuh, berderet A+, berpinar-pinar mata nasib baik tak kena pukau jadi zombi kampung putat. Pulak dah


My loyal study partner -  Azrie
Congrats for your 9A+ result!


Then when I was speaking to Yus, he did mentioned something about the LK's result. And his face was kinda like covering something. Then I asked him "Do you actually know about my result?". Then he replied "Just wait for the announcement okay". Ya Allah, there must be something peculiar about my result. The same thing happend to all of my friends that I'd a chat with. They all like covering something from me. From that moment onward, I just prepared myself for the worst.

Then out of knowhere, Ali patted me from behind and he directly said "Azraai, subjek LK hang dapat B+....". Oh. Okay. Then the time seemed to just stopped right there. The worst things that I could ever imagine is currently unfolding right now.The surge of frustration was directly injected into my body. Feelin like I just wanna broke up crying there, but I hold it to the max. At that point, there's simply nothing is comparable to express on how frustrated I am.


Me? Kinda


Then the announcement for the other 45 straight A's achiever was started. I just really hoped that the result told by Ali just now was completely WRONG. Then when the MC started to announce the straight A's achiever form my class, the feeling was simply overwhelming. One by one of my classmates' name were called, until the MC shifted to announce the straight A's achiever from the another class. Yeah, confirmed. I'm not included among the straight A's achiever. I'm totally screwed up!

The most excrutiating pain is when the name was called one by one, cause it really sucks waiting for my name to be called on the stage. However I'm still hoping and hoping for it. There might be a possibility that my name could be missed out? Or Ali might look the exam slip of the wrong person? All of those "if that", "what about", "what if" just keep crossing throughout my mind.


Congrats to 50 of them! You guys make me so proud


It was really hard to take, especially when my parents were also present for the result announcement. But my mom seemed not looking sad at all, and the same thing goes to my father. They simply redha on the fact that their son is not among the straight A's achiever. To my amazement, mom even told me, "For whatever the result that you got, I'll still be the proudest mother in this whole world". Ya Allah, it really made me feel better. It really did indeed. Thank you Ya Allah for giving me such an understanding parents! Alhamdulillah

So for the non-straight A's, they need to take the exam slip from the class teacher. Tunggu turn, last-last sampai jugak turn aku nak ambik result tu ngan teacher Hasrin. Her first word was, "Azraai, I never expect to hand in your exam slip right here. I thought it will be up on the stage". I just gave a broad smile and said "maybe tak ada rezeki teacher". Took almost 15 mins of chatting about simply everything with teacher. Ya Allah, i'm so thankful to You for giving me the chance for having the most inspirational teacher here.


Then i got my exam slip. Here is it looks like:




Alhamdulilah 
alhamdulillah 
alhamdulillah 
Ya Allah! 

I'm so grateful ya Allah for this result. I managed to score 9A's and 1B (7A+, 2A, 1B+). I got A+ for Bahasa Melayu, English, Mathematics, Sejarah, Pendidikan Islam, Add Maths and Chemistry. For the A grade, that's for Physics and Biology. And B+, of course, for LK.

I was totally never expect LK to get B+. It was truly shocking indeed. In fact I could do well during the past LK SPM paper. As a flashback, it has 8 questions altogether, where there's only 1 question that turned out to be a bit tricky, but the other 7 questions were just fine indeed. In fact, 3 of my classmates - Hana, Rara and Pipah were also got screw up by this subject and eventually dropped four of us among the 10As league.

Then I managed to meet up with the rest of my friends and teachers. Most of them were shocked for my result. Cikgu Midi also told me that he actually expecting me to be grouped among the straight A+'s achievers. But I'm really really sorry cikgu, for not accomplish your respective target.

Cikgu cikgu yang aku jumpa pun, punyalah bersunguh bagi dorongan, sungguh aku rasa betul-betul terharu. Diorang siap pesan lagi, "Tak payah nak fikir sangat ngan 1B tu, sebab subjek A+ yang awak dapat dah cukup banyak. Nak isi scholar dah cukup syarat ni, nak fly overseas pun masih ada bright chances lagi whatt?.." Woahh tetiba rasa bersemangat balik! Dah tak sedih lagi dahhh! Trimas trimas cikgu for the support!


Serious stare on the slip

The feeling of frust, sadness and down eventually faded away. Tak dapat straight A's, bukanlah bermakna masa depan dah gelap kan? Straight A's tu bukanlah menentukan segalanya lagi kan? Tapi seriously, rasa terkilan tu ade lah jugak, sebab dapat B untuk subjek yang tak expect langsung. If dapat B for BIO ke, aku takdelah feel camni, sebab BIO hari tu memang susah pun. Eh tapi BIO aku dapat A lah pulak, Alhamdulillah.. 

Tapi dah ramai member aku dah tahu pasal result aku ni, even before time cikgu announce lagi. Eh tapi camna plak diroang boleh tahu result aku awal lagi eh? Wondering....


reviewing the exam slip with ibu & papa

Well.. papa's still smiling. That's a good sign indeed.
So MacBook Pro maybe? 


Alhamdulillah aku bersyukur dengan result yang aku dapat ni. The greatest Alhamdulillah to Allah almighty for giving me this kind of result. Congrats jugak kat semua 50 straight A's achievers and also the entire batch of  Chivalry Gen of SMS Kubang Pasu for moulding our school history! Not to be forgotten to the entire board of teachers who had gave out their all in teaching all of us and also to all of our superb parents who aided to catapult all of us, all the way to this pinnacle of success!



Thank you and congrats.





"Yeah, everything happen for a reason..."





Yet, I have something to prove. I mean it seriously. JUST WAIT
