Nguyen Ngoc Ha Nguyen
Year 12V, British Vietnamese International School, Hanoi (BVIS Hanoi)
Achieving A* and A grades in all 7 of her IGCSE subjects
Last year was the most memorable year for Ha Nguyen. Not only did she pass the IGCSE exam with outstanding achievements, Ha Nguyen (and Kim YeonOo) also represented the British Vietnamese International School, Hanoi to participate in the high-level conference for students organised by UNICEF last July.
‘Eliminating the competitive mentality is important for reducing pressures which arose in the learning and testing process. That's what I learned during my time at school and through my recent trip to UNICEF’, shared Ha Nguyen. “At first, I spent a lot of time worrying about how I would express myself. But on the trip, I realized that for youngsters, achieving good results is not the only aspect of importance. What is more important are awareness of surrounding issues, the ability to connect with people and also to share and acquire knowledge with a broader perspective.’
The IGCSE program is currently taught in 140 countries and in more than 3,700 schools, including 1,300 schools in the United Kingdom. With its training standards are internationally recognised, more and more schools are now choosing IGCSE program for education around the world.
