Aaron Koh (above) is the first President's Scholar in the last five years to have a C in the A-level exams. -- ST PHOTO: RAJ NADARAJAN By Amelia Tan Mr Aaron Koh's heart sunk when he received his A-level results earlier this year.

Mr Koh, who has always been among the top in his cohort since primary school, said getting the results was very disappointing and 'one of the lowest points in his life'.

But, he did not expect to be chosen as one of four President's Scholars this year.
