Rebecca P

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Rebecca. Below Rebecca shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements:

How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi?

IGCSEs were a challenging two years but the hard work put in was definitely rewarding in the end. I am happy that while studying I was able to improve my exam technique and time management skills, something I really struggled with at the start of Year 10. I'm also glad that I found effective revision methods that allowed me to efficiently learn the content, and although it was difficult, I was able to balance my studies and continue swim training throughout the exams. I think that these skills that I developed over the IGCSE years will help me in the future.

Are you happy with your results?

I am extremely happy with all my results, especially in the sciences as I would like to continue studying them in the future. I was surprised by my economics result, as I struggled with it throughout both years, however, with much perseverance I'm tremendously happy that I managed to achieve a grade 9.

What are your plans for the future?
After IB, I would like to study a field related to biology and chemistry. I have always enjoyed these subjects and so I think I would find a subject such as Biomedical science or Microbiology very interesting to study in university. 

Rebecca's IGCSE results: 6x9, 2xA* and 1x8.
