Coimbatore : As many as 24 students from Tamil Nadu have won Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award, recognising exceptional exam performance in 2017-18.
Cambridge International has conferred an impressive 210 awards on Indian Students, under four categories– ‘Top in the World’, ‘Top in the Country’, High Achievement Award’ and ‘Best Across’.
Tamil Nadu students won 24 awards overall, with Coimbatore, Madurai and Tuticorin claiming a ‘Top in the World’ award each, even as 62 ‘Top in the World’ awards have been won by students across India.
The Top in the World awards recognise students who have achieved the highest mark in the world in a Cambridge IGCSE or Cambridge International AS & A Level subject in the November 2017, 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.
“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. Cambridge International Regional Director South Asia, Ruchira Ghosh, said in a release here.
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,” Ruchira said.
The award winners will be recognised 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 programmes and qualifications and the number is growing each year, the release said.
