Overcoming odds

In 1976 I only pass 3 subjects in my GCE O level.

I only take 5 subjects, I never take my maths because I didn't  had confidence.

I need to wake up at 4 am to help my mom run the hawker stall, as our livelihood depend on the stall, during my O level exam and discouragement from friend, and the teacher was not interested in teaching us, I dropped my maths in the exam.

In 1978 I made a fresh determination to retake the 3 O level that I failed or didn't take - Physical Science, English and Maths.

I got to be efficient in predicting which topic the questions likely to come out.

I found a way to forecast accurately. 

I can't study and remember everything in the  books, so I concentrate on those most likely to come out. 

I apply my system to predict the stock market, I passed my 3 subjects as private candidate quite well, Even I was late at my maths exam. The exam was held in Tanjong Katong Technical School.

Most of my classmates failed when they retook the GCE O level as private candidates.

Imagine you got to study until late at night at 1am, next morning you need to wake up to run the food stall at 4am then rush to school to sit for your O Level exam, fortunately the last day of 5 hours of exams, 2 and the half each, Jason Quek my classmate who dropout came to help me to cycle the food from my house to our food stall at Sims Drive. 

Of all the subjects I like the topic of Probability the most, in maths.
