The A Levels qualuifications have seen a 14% rise in entries compared to June 2015. The most popular subjects for CIE A Levels are Physics and Chemistry, which had nearly 3,000 entries this year - an increase of 18%.
Globally there has been 10% growth across all Cambridge qualifications this year, including 8% growth in entries for Cambridge IGCSEs.
Cambridge International Examinations regional director for Middle East and North Africa Waseem Al Hanbali said:
"I'd like to congratulate our students in the UAE for the hard work that went into their exams this year. We are extremely fortunate to have worked with schools in the UAE for over 25 years. We now work with over 110 schools and I'm pleased to say that the popularity for our international qualifications continues to grow with the overall growth of the education sector in this country.
"Today's great results are based on the hard work of students, teachers and school support staff, together with the essential support and encouragement of families. There is so much collective effort that goes into the results of an individual; it is schools, parents and teachers who also contribute to a student's grade. I want to say well done to everyone and wish you every success as you move on to the next stage of studies and career pathways."
