Abby Natasha Martin

from SMK Segama, Lahad Datu

I was told that Bible Knowledge is a tough subject especially to a student with a poor command of English like me. I spent 3 days praying and seeking God’s answer whether to take BK in Form 4 in 2017. With God’s guidance and my great hunger for His word, I began the BK journey. I was going through troubles in life but that was the year for me to draw close to God. I struggled again before registering BK as my SPM subject, but God gave me the courage to move on. I found that this subject got harder as I studied deeper in Acts.

However, I believe that taking BK is not merely for a good grade but to have a deeper of understanding God’s Word that transforms lives. I even expected to fail in my BK but God was gracious. I’m truly thankful for the ‘E’ that I had achieved. Others may look down on my grade, but my heart is filled with gratitude for the rich blessing and strength that I have received through learning BK.

Now, I treasure my relationship with God and the fruits of transformation in my life. Praise God for 2018, the first batch of SPM BK candidates for SMK Segama, Lahad Datu, Sabah. Glory be to God.


Estee Chang

from SM St Patrick, Tawau

I started to study Bible Knowledge in Form 4 when I joined SM St Patrick, Tawau, in 2017. During the first lesson, I found out that it was indeed interesting! I remembered I was very nervous when I sat for my first BK test. I was shocked I could pass with 47%. Thank God for a patient and loving pastor who taught and equipped us well, relating his life experience in his teaching and brought out the truth in God’s Word.

Through BK class, I truly felt that I got closer to God and understand the Bible more. In cell group, I could answer questions asked by the leader when no one else could! I also learnt how important it is to have devotion every morning and to put God first. God’s Word has transformed my life and my spirit is more sensitive to God especially in the area of sin.

Thank God for giving me 6As, though I only scored a B+ in BK.


Eunice Lim

from SM St Patrick, Tawau

Taking up Bible Knowledge as a subject transformed my life. I was once a quiet person. To take the initiative to make friends was no doubt a difficult task for me. Yet through BK, I was able to widen my social circle. When I faced difficulties, I learnt to open up myself so that we could encourage and pray for one another, just as what the early church had practised according to Acts. Never had I thought that learning God’s word would help me to improve in my other academic subjects!

I really thank God that I had a chance to join the Regional and National SPM BK Oral Quiz 2018. It was not easy, yet I could witness how the Lord worked among us. There is an assurance given by the Lord: He will always bless those who meditate on His Word day and night. By God’s grace, I could excel in my studies. Thank God for giving me an A in my SPM BK 2018.


Ezra Tan

from St David High School, Melaka

I was in Form 3 when my friend, Nga Tian Ern invited me to participate in the Postal Bible Knowledge Quiz. That’s how I got involved in BK. Later, my teacher Puan Grace Teh On Chew encouraged me to take BK for SPM. I accepted this challenge as it was an opportunity to glorify God.

Taking 11 subjects is never an easy task. I spent a lot more time studying BK than the other subjects. In addition, I needed to accustom myself with the English Bible as I was used to the Chinese Bible. I thank God that Tian Ern reminded me to study BK consistently. By God’s grace and the help of my teacher Madam Jagan, I improved. During the SPM BK paper, I had flu but God provided me with the strength to hold on till the end. At last, I got an A+ for BK! Without the additional A+, I would only have had 8A+ and not be qualified for many scholarships.

How grateful I am to God for He works in wondrous ways. I strongly encourage students to sign up and do their best for BK. By doing this, you are a good testimony to others regardless of the results. “Just do your best and let God do the rest.”

Ezra Tan together with Nga Tian Ern of St David High School Melaka won the National BK Oral Quiz in 2018. Ezra managed to get 9A+ in the SPM exam.


Nga Tian Ern

from St David High School, Melaka

I would not have known about the existence of Bible Knowledge as an SPM subject if not for the BK Quizzes. I am very grateful to God for everyone involved in organising the BK quizzes.

To me, taking BK was not just about getting an extra A+ in SPM. What really matters is how we perform in life instead of how we perform in examinations. Memorising Bible verses in Luke and Acts has proven to be useful, not only in exams, as the Holy Spirit reminds us of God’s Word in daily situations.

I really appreciate my dedicated BK teacher, Madam Jagan for her teaching skills and tasty snacks that kept us energised during class. I thank my school CF and friends for always being there to support and encourage me.

BK has given me an insight into the Bible as I have learned not to be satisfied with the literal meaning of parables and the interesting stories, but to dive deeper into the truth of God’s Word. It is undeniable that studying Luke and Acts has made a difference in my life.

Tian Ern managed to get 11A+ in the SPM exam.


Hooi Yan Ling

from Johor Bahru

My journey with BK started in Form 4 when I insisted on taking BK even though my school was not very supportive of it. I was rather frustrated and the more they didn’t encourage me to take it, the more determined I became to take up the challenge to prove myself to them. Looking back on these past two years, I can now clearly see how God has worked through my stubbornness and weaknesses to help me grow spiritually and be rooted in Christ.

Taking BK was definitely one of the best experiences of my life even though it meant putting in the extra effort to wake up early on Friday mornings for class and spending extra time studying an extra subject. The lessons that I learnt while studying Luke and Acts weren’t just head knowledge but also heart knowledge and they kept me strong even through the tough times when I felt totally burnt out. Knowing that there’s a loving Father who’s always with me gives me the strength to persevere on.

Truly I am thankful to God for having been so faithful and real to me throughout this journey and indeed taking BK may be challenging, but the joy that comes from knowing more about Jesus makes everything worthwhile.


Samson Lai Chung Hung

from SM St Patrick, Tawau

My experience in taking Bible Knowledge as an additional subject has been one of the best and exciting experiences I’ve ever had.

I joined SM St. Patrick, Tawau, in 2014. For the first 6 months of my first year, I never knew the school offered Bible Knowledge class. A dear friend and Teacher Evelyn, whom I first met during a Christian Fellowship meeting and who is also a Bible Knowledge teacher, encouraged me to join the class. For weeks I was nervous and scared to join the class until one day I finally decided to attend the class. The road was bumpy in the beginning. I struggled and failed in my BK tests and exams in that first year.

It was hard to study an extra subject, having to remember names and events in the Gospel of Luke and Acts. But by God’s grace coupled with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I was able to catch up and scored high marks in BK exams the following year. In 2018, I had a chance to participate in the SPM BK Oral Quiz in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and the National Quiz in Kuala Lumpur. Much effort was put in for these quizzes which helped me in scoring an A- in my SPM BK.

Fear God and trust in His faithfulness. Study hard and smart. God will see us through. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13). To God be the glory!

Samson scored an A- for BK in SPM 2018.


Shalom Seng

from SM St Patrick, Tawau

I once was a very lazy girl, having dreams that were unrealistic and I did not have high hopes for myself. But through studying Bible Knowledge, God’s Word has shaped me into who I am today.

Thank God for a teacher who encouraged me and sponsored me to join the SPM BK Oral Quiz 2018. At first, I thought it’s impossible as I was way behind during the training before the competition. However, the Lord gave me the courage to just believe and have faith in Him. Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Preparing for the SPM BK Oral Quiz was a great preparation for my SPM BK exam.

Once again glory and praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ for giving me an A- in my SPM BK 2018.


Wong Kean Hoe

from SMJK Chung Ling, Penang

At first, I did not know that there was an extra subject called Bible Knowledge. I was reluctant to take BK as an extra subject. But with much consideration and encouragement from my parents, I finally took BK when I was in Form 5. It was indeed hard to cope with 2 books (Luke and Acts) in just one year.

However unlike the other subjects, studying BK has changed my perspective of how I look at things and has given me a hope and purpose of living my life. I gradually realized that the words I read in those 2 books were like a two-edged sword, always rebuking, teaching, correcting, reviving, inspiring and most importantly transforming my life.

It was worth my time reading and studying BK because I will be able to carry the values I have learned throughout my life.

You too will be blessed when you read and study Luke and Acts with a heart!

Wong Kean Hoe scored an A for BK.
