ABU DHABI // Nine students across the UAE earned among the highest scores in the world in the Cambridge International Examinations.
In all, 87 students across the country are being recognised for their high performance in the examinations, which took place last June.
“I am very proud to congratulate learners across the United Arab Emirates on their outstanding results in the Cambridge examinations,” said Waseem Al Hanbali, Regional Director, Middle East and North Africa. “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.”
The examinations are part of the Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge, which offers international and British-curriculum schools advanced coursework, such as the Cambridge International AS, A-Levels and IGCSE.
In the UAE, there are 106 schools who offer the Cambridge International Examinations and coursework. In the Mena region, there are about 642. Worldwide, there are about 10,000 Cambridge schools.
