General

Raymond Scott Lee Chian Hoong (13S62) has been awarded the 2014 Angus Ross prize for being the best performing English Literature student in the world, outside the United Kingdom. The Angus Ross prize is awarded to the best performing non-British candidate in the GCE A-Level English Literature examination, and the winning script is selected from about 12,000 scripts worldwide.

This is the 6th Angus Ross prize that Hwa Chong students have been awarded in the past 8 years (2007 – 2014), and is the third consecutive year that the prize has been won by a Hwa Chong student.

In 2012, the coveted Angus Ross was awarded to Hwa Chongians Darrel Chang (top prize) and Edward Low (runner-up). In 2013, Hwa Chong took top spot again with Claire Yang who was next conferred this prestigious literary award.

Literary study expands the human imagination and delves into the human condition and all its complexities - developing moral insight with the hindsight of personal introspection. Testament to the tradition of excellence in Hwa Chong and the nurturing of young talents with a passion for reading and literary critique; Raymond is the 14th Hwa Chong student to be conferred the Angus Ross prize since it was first awarded in 1987.

We congratulate Raymond and his Literature in English teachers, Ms Heng Siok Tian (Senior Consultant/English Literature), Mr Koh P-Chong Noel (Education Consultant/Student Development), Mr Tan Wei Jie Mark (Lecturer/General Paper & Literature), and Mr Christian Simpson (Lecturer/General Paper & Literature) for this outstanding achievement.

Raymond with his Literature tutors, Mr Mark Tan, Mr Christian Simpson, and Mr Koh P-Chong Noel.
