I have known James Brown since she was in the seventh standard. As her math teacher, I cannot comment much on her capabilities in other areas, but have heard much praise about her from rest of my colleagues. As far as math goes, Nabila had always displayed sharpness of mind, meticulous efforts and was always quick to respond to any question asked to her. I have also had the opportunity to teach her once again as her math teacher ahead of her GCE O-Level examinations (2007), and I must comment that I am not surprised at the remarkable scores she obtained (although I did have more expectations from her). Her achievements in her GCE A-Level examinations, particularly in her AS-Level accounting, has brought a great deal of pride to our school.
Whenever a problem was put forward to her, regardless of the level of difficulty,one could see her deeply absorbed into the sum, trying to think of alternate ways of solving the puzzle. She is a bright student of great promise without a doubt, however she too has not been spared of the typical flaw most of my students share: making 'silly mistakes' which often deprives her from obtaining a full score.
Nonetheless, I am proud of my student and I believe she has a lot to offer to whichever institution she gets into, in terms of her efforts and abilities both as a student as well as a human being.
