Studied in Mander Portman Woodward A-Level

My name is Rebecca Wee Xiau Yieng and I graduated from MPW Cambridge 3 years ago, back in June 2019. Prior to studying at MPW Cambridge, I studied at Lodge International School, Kuching. I came across MPW at an educational fair in September 2017 and it immediately became clear to me where I want to go after I finish my IGCSEs.

My experience throughout the whole A-level period at MPW Cambridge was amazing. The teachers were very nice and they were able to assist us in our studies as the size of the classroom is very small. The principal of the college was able to remember all of our names. The whole college was like a big family. I met awesome people in the college, and even today, I still cannot forget the amazing food that was sold in the school’s canteen.

Cambridge is a lovely city, and every moment of it brings back great memories. The beauty of this city still fascinates me until today. The journey between the college and my accommodation is what makes me fall in love with the city. Speaking of accommodation, during my time in Cambridge, I have been staying in the student accommodation that is located very close to multiple supermarkets and eateries. I stayed in an ensuite room, sharing the kitchen with 5 other people. The kitchen is where we usually hang out after a long day at college and where we get to eat dinner together and relax.

After completing my studies at MPW Cambridge for one and a half years, I continued my journey to study for a degree in Bsc Real Estate at the University of Reading. 2022 is my final year of this degree, and for now, I am planning to work for a few years before re-entering the university to study masters in the future.
