Cambridge International has conferred an impressive 210 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards on Indian students. The awards recognise 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. The Top in World awards recognise students who have achieved the highest mark in the world in 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.
Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director South Asia, Cambridge International, said: “We are thrilled by the performance of Cambridge students across India, not only in STEM subjects but also in subjects like Cambridge Global Perspectives, environmental management, drama and music. A Cambridge education is about supporting schools to help students become confident, responsible, innovative, reflective and engaged, and to fulfil their potential. We wish the students well as they build on this success, and we extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the award winners, their teachers and parents.”
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.
