Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Paul. Below he shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements:
How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi?
I have been attending BIS Abu Dhabi for over ten years now and I couldn’t be any happier with how my IGCSEs went. Throughout my two IGSCE years, the school and teachers have been a crucial part in my studies and in helping me cope with all the pressure related to the exams. The support and guidance I have received from my teachers and peers has been extraordinary and has helped me be the best version of myself.
Are you happy with your results?
Yes, I am extremely happy with my results as they portray all the hard work I have put in during the two years. The hardest part was finding a balance between competing in athletics as well as my studies. Keeping a healthy lifestyle and exercising was very important alongside my studies as it helped me take my mind of all the work and pressure. I am especially content with my Maths result because I consistently worked really hard, in and out of lessons, to make sure I was able to get a 9, allowing me to do higher level Math’s in IB, which is a requirement for most universities when applying for anything related to engineering.
What are you plans for the future?
At the moment, I plan on staying at BIS Abu Dhabi to continue my academic studies, pursuing my IB diploma. In the future, I would like to continue my education through an undergraduate degree, studying Computer Engineering, preferably in the UK. I am very passionate about the subject as it widens my perspective on problems and forces me to think outside the box to find solutions for real world dilemmas. Eventually, I would love to work on artificial intelligence as I think that it will become a huge part of society in the near future.
