University of Cambridge International Examinations and British Council announced the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, Nepal. The awards celebrate the outstanding academic achievements of secondary school learners in Nepal in June 2013 and November 2013 Cambridge Examination Series.
Guy Harrison, Chargé d'affaires British Embassy, Di Palmer, Director of Assessment Cambridge International, Mr. William Bickerdike, Regional Manager South Asia, University of Cambridge International Examinations, Mr Narayan Gopal Malego, secretary of Education, and Brendan McSharry OBE, Country Director BC Nepal attended the ceremony to present the prizes.
According to a press release of British Council, over 38 learners received awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 2 learners who achieved the highest marks in the world.
The awards also celebrated 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 Nepal and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects. The winning learners out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat examinations in Cambridge International AS and A Levels. These outstanding results will be recognized by employers and universities around the world as a proof of academic excellence.
Suzy Chowdhury, Schools Development Manager says: ‘I am very proud to congratulate learners across Nepal on their outstanding results in the Cambridge examinations. It is encouraging to acknowledge the high standards of education offered by schools across the country reflected through these exceptional results. 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 learner’s 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.
