Six UAE students among world toppers in Cambridge IGCSE and A LevelsDecember 5, 2016, 6:35 am GMT
Six students from UAE schools achieved the highest marks in the world in the 2016 IGCSE and AS Level exams held by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards celebrate outstanding achievements of secondary school students each year.
Over 90 awards were won this year for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 46 learners who attained the highest marks in the UAE in a single subject.
The awards also celebrate the achievements of those learners who have been recognised for "high achievement" based on outstanding performance in subjects which are not yet so widely taken in the country, and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects.
The six world toppers from UAE schools are Zain Naeem from Pristine Private School; Rajaram Ganesan and Kavya Jayaprakash from Merryland International School; Raj Dhakan from RAK Academy; Rihab Farooq Ahmed from International School of Creative Science; and Melissa Rodrigues Guedes Da Silva from Horizon International School.
Commenting on the results, CIE regional director, Middle East and North Africa, Waseem Al Hanbali said: "I am very proud to congratulate learners across the United Arab Emirates on their outstanding results in the Cambridge examinations. These achievements are a credit to the partnerships which Cambridge has established with schools and demonstrate the dedication and commitment of teachers support provided by families and friends, and learners' determination and passion to succeed. This success defines them not just as learners, but as Cambridge learners. I wish them every success in their future."
