This achievement is even more remarkable given the fact that lessons and examinations are conducted in French. Cheeng Tse, on the other hand, was awarded University Honours for graduating within the top 3 percent of her faculty, also known informally as the “Bronze Tablet”, as her name has been cast in bronze and is now proudly displayed alongside her alma mater’s top alumni.
