Cambridge International has conferred an impressive 210 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards on Indian students. The awards recognize exceptional exam performance in 2017-18 under four categories – ‘Top in the World’, ‘Top in the Country’, High Achievement Award’ and ‘Best Across’.
In total, 62 ‘Top in the World’ awards have been won by students across India, out of which 28 awards have been bagged by the students in Mumbai. More than 40 per cent of the award winners in Mumbai have achieved this distinction – more than in any other city in India.
The Top in the World awards recognize students who have achieved the highest mark in the world in a Cambridge IGCSE or Cambridge International AS & A Level subject in the November 2016, March 2018 and June 2018 Cambridge exam series. In the other three categories, ‘Top in the Country’, ‘High Achievement’ and ‘Best Across’, students in India have won 94, 44 and 10 awards respectively.
Abhimanyu Basu, Principal International Curriculum, Dhirubhai Ambani International School, said, “It is a matter of great pride for our school to be consistently getting exceptional results at Cambridge IGCSE. It is a tribute to our commitment to build a happy school and help every child dream big and excel holistically. We encourage our studentsto bring in their own perspectives and take the experiential path to learning. We prepare children to identify their interests early on and develop them into their passion, inspiring them to 'Dare to Dream and Learn to Excel' and orient them to be lifelong learners.”
The award winners from schools across the country will be recognized for their impressive academic achievements at a Cambridge Outstanding Learner Awards ceremony early next year. There has been a substantial increase in the popularity of Cambridge qualifications in India and around the world. Over 450 schools in India offer Cambridge programs and qualifications and the number is growing each year.
