Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Camilla. Below Camilla shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements:
How was your experience doing IGCSEs at BIS Abu Dhabi?
IGCSEs were undoubtedly a very stressful two years, however, thinking back on it now, it was a very rewarding experience. At times the pressure got very high, and I felt like I couldn’t manage the work, thankfully us students were always supported by all the amazing teachers at BISAD. They always made time to help us manage our time efficiently in addition to helping us with revision through extra booster sessions at breaks and after school. I was also helped by all my friends and classmates, we got together before our exams for group study sessions, it was helpful as It was nice to collectively revise it made the process a lot more fun as well.
Are you happy with your results?
I am certainly very proud of my grades across all subjects, Physics in particular, as it was quite a challenging subject for me at the start of Year 10, but through hard work and support from my teacher, I was able to achieve a very high grade (very unexpectedly as well). All the hard work and stressful hours of revision all paid off at the end of these two years.
What are your plans for the future?
Once I finish the IB diploma, I would like to go on to University to study Global Sustainability Science, as I feel that it will be become a very relevant subject in the future which most people would like to invest time in. I am also interested in the research aspect of the subject, as it entails a big portion of practical work. Most of all, I would like to find a job that I am strongly interested in.
Camilla's IGCSE results: 2xA*, 5x8, 1xA & 2x7.
