Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Thomas.
Below, Thomas shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements:
How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi?
I was very lucky that the school I picked when I moved to Abu Dhabi was BISAD, and this is mainly because of the amazing teachers here who helped me improve drastically.
I came to BISAD really behind, and I ended up doing far better in my IGCSEs than I had ever thought possible, which is obviously a representation of hard work, but is also a testament of the great teachers we have at the school.
Are you happy with your results?
I am very happy with my results, as I worked really hard, having to revise new content while also catching up on all the Year 10, 9 and even 8 fundamental concepts that I had never been taught. I am especially happy with my Maths grade, as I really needed it to be considered acceptance into HL Maths, which is required for any sort of physics related degree.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to study Physics at University, and ultimately get a physics related job. One of the jobs I have in mind is in astrophysics and this links to my dream of working at a place like NASA and helping us making significant strides in our knowledge of space and the universe around us. Ever since I was a child, I was always fascinated in discovering how the world around me worked, and the science behind it. This childlike curiosity still resides with me today and it’s what ultimately influences my passion for physics.
