On top of that, Lim Zi Yang was also the Country Winner (i.e. Singapore’s Top Scorer) and went on to represent Singapore in the final rounds. He was subsequently placed 4th in the finals – an impressive feat for Singapore given that the gap among the top scorers were very close.

NetAcad Riders Challenge is an interactive networking skills contest that unites students from across the region, and enhances classroom learning by promoting further technology education and training. Organised by Cisco, the competition accords a platform for Networking Academy students to learn valuable networking and IT skills through a series of online exams and simulation activities using Cisco Packet Tracer.
