  1. "You know Mr Lee Kuan Yew at election rally one year in Fullerton square, said who is this man Mr Chiam See Tong (public shouts"Now he knows")(Laughs and cheers)... and he take the trouble to examine my "O" level result. (Laughs) And you know what he found? He go through the result very carefully and he count very carefully also. One...two..three...four...five... Is that all? And he look again and there is only five. (Laughs) But I am not ashamed of my "O" level result. (Cheers and claps) How many of you have five "O" level result? ..... So you and I are on par. But don't be afraid. (Cheers and claps) This is not the end of the world for you. I have five "O" level but I am a lawyer now. (Cheers and claps) You and I are the same. We are know as slow learner. At 11 plus our brain are not fully developed. (Laughs) 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 then our brain slower develop into a better brain. (Laughs and claps) So if you worried by your poor result, you have company. (Laughs and claps and cheers) If your mother scold you for having five "O" level, you can quote my example. (Laughs and claps and cheers) You can tell your mother what's wrong with 5 "O" level. Chaim also have five "O" level and he can become a lawyer. So can I. (Laughs and claps and cheers) But if you don't like to be a lawyer and want to choose to be something else, by all mean, go ahead." 10.25
