Nguyen Ngoc Le, the name is quite famous these days thanks to the story of the valedictorian 30/30 grade A in 2022 and the rumor: don’t use the phone.
In the recently announced National High School Graduation Exam 2022, Nguyen Ngoc Le (grade 12, Quoc Oai High School, Hanoi) is the only national valedictorian to achieve 30 points. His impressive score is as follows: Math: 10, Physics: 10, Chemistry: 10, English: 8, Literature: 5.5, Biology: 6.75, combination of Science and Technology: 8.92.
In high school, Le is also famous for being a good and hard-working student, having won the first prize in city level math with 19.5/20 points, the test score at school is always 9.10 points.
This male student was also previously recruited directly into the Department of Mathematics – Information of Hanoi Polytechnic.
The secret of the valedictorian: Just learning from the textbook… is not enough.
Talking to reporters, Nguyen Ngoc Le said that she was very happy with the results, but not surprised because she had compared with the answer of the Ministry of Education and Training and guessed that she would get high results. such.
At the sharing ceremony, my secret is nothing but two words: hard work and self-discipline.
“I often study by myself, find out online, combine with teachers and friends to refer to other methods of solving that I do not know. Studying hard is also very important. Especially during the sprint, I will try to do as many problems as possible. And before the exam day 2-3 days, I will spend more time going out,” Nguyen Ngoc Le said.
Ngoc Le also frankly said, he found that studying in textbooks was definitely not enough: “Textbooks only provide basic knowledge for themselves. In addition, I also have to learn to solve more problems online, look for new types of exercises so that when entering the exam room, I will not be ‘bewildered’ when I encounter difficult problems.
Every day she spends 9-10 hours studying, Ngoc Le also forces herself to speed up her learning and focus more. However, Ngoc Le said that she felt quite normal because she used the same method: study for 1 hour and take a break for 5 minutes so as not to be too stressed.
In the last days of exam review, Ngoc Le always tries to sleep exactly 7-8 hours a day, to recover her health for the stressful exam days before. When he is under pressure in studying, he will surf social media and watch entertainment clips.
The pressure of being famous, the regret of studying too much
From yesterday (July 24) until now, Ngoc Le is one of the most interested names on MXH when she is the only valedictorian in the country to get a total score of 30/30 in terms of the traditional exam. With such impressive achievements, it is not difficult to understand when Ngoc Le became an “object” of special attention from the media.
Ngoc Le said that all day 24/7, he and his family had to welcome many people to ask for an interview. He said: “This morning, I was quite surprised because a reporter came to my house for an interview. When I checked the test scores, I also guessed that I was the valedictorian. But I still think reporters will look to other valedictorians, not me.”
Previously, when talking with us, Mr. Nguyen Minh Chau – (Principal of Quoc Oai High School) also said: Le’s family was quite concerned about their son’s privacy being affected after the results of the high school graduation exam. His is widely published on MXH.
“With this title, I feel a lot of pressure, very shy and a bit… self-deprecating. Until now, I have not met so many interviewers.” Ngoc Le feels quite pressured with the title of “national valedictorian” that everyone calls him.
During the three years of high school, the valedictorian’s biggest regret was… studying too much, spending little time with friends. From the 10th grade to the middle of the 12th grade, Le rarely used social media and phones for fear of affecting her studies. This has somewhat limited him in connecting with friends.
“I think in the future, I will use social media more, not only to help myself for studying but also to build relationships,” Le said.
