Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Fahd. Below Fahd shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements:
How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi?
I found IGCSEs very difficult at the beginning but when I moved to BISAD in the middle of Year 10, I started to find it allot easier to cope with the stress and difficult challenges with the help of my excellent new teachers. They helped me improve my grades and see my true potential by making me work harder and being very supportive. BISAD also gave us many resources to help us succeed in IGCSEs and the school has many facilities which allowed me to continue my sport interests during school.
Are you happy with your results?
I am very delighted with my results and was extremely shocked when I received them as I never expected myself to do so well. I knew it was due to the substantial effort and devotion of my teachers towards my education. For instance, in Geography I achieved an A* which I had never expected since it wasn’t one my strongest subjects however with the help of Mr. Fairbank who gave us many resources and helped me get the A*.
What are you plans for the future?
I have always wanted to do something to help people in their everyday lives and tackle problems that are out of their control. This is why I have become very interested in Bioengineering as it combines both my interests of Biology and Computer Science whilst allowing me to create new innovative biotech that can further improve our lives and in some cases save them.
Fahd's IGCSE results: 1xA*, 2x8, 1xA & 5x7.
