1. With a First-Class Honours, awarded to 121 of 5,990 NUS graduates in 1991 ( 2% ) and the 2nd Prize ( of 3 prizes in Electrical Engineering ) for his honours thesis, Mr. Phang has demonstrated subject mastery which very few teachers are able to match.
2. Unlike most tutors, who can remember only the schools that they taught at but not those that they studied at, Mr. Phang vaguely remembers studying at Raffles Institution.
Besides a First-Class Honours Degree, Mr. Phang and his students have achieved many other 'Firsts'.
