The Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC) student scored the highest marks globally for the 'Strategic Business Leader' subject in the ACCA examination in December 2019.

TAR UC took to their official Instagram page yesterday, 17 January, to congratulate Ng, describing her examination results as a "world-class achievement".

Moreover, this is not the first time that Ng's achievements have been lauded

In July 2019, TAR UC announced on its website that a team of six TAR UC students, one of which was Ng, participated in the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (‘ICAEW’) Malaysia Business Challenge 2019.

The competition, which took place on 26 April last year, challenged participants to apply their creativity and innovation through business case studies.

The TAR UC team managed to overtake 20 other teams to successfully bag the Most Innovative Team award.
