Being a college student can mean that you have to stretch your hours to cater to long classes and study sessions. However, this does not deter the students of Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) from remaining competitive in both national and international arenas.
This July and August saw more than 10 of MCKL’s A-Level students participating in stimulating competitions that challenge their critical thinking skills, general knowledge and teamwork capabilities throughout diverse fields.
