Olympe shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements.

Celebrating our IGCSE 2020 highest achiever, Olympe. Below Olympe shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements:

How was your experience completing the two-year IGCSE courses at BIS Abu Dhabi? 

The last two years studying for the IGCSEs have been very challenging.  

I joined BIS Abu Dhabi in the second term of Year 9. It was not only my first time studying in English, but also my discovery of the British curriculum that I found more demanding than the French one. 

You can imagine how it was a difficult start ; but with the support of my teachers and classmates, I was ready and in the starting blocks for the IGCSE race when I started Year 10. 

This past year has been unique due to the global pandemic, and I thank my teachers a lot who have given me the best quality online learning and good pieces of advice. 

I would have liked to sit the exams in order to get the full IGCSE experience, but I was relieved to get grades that reflected my internal assessments and courseworks throughout those two years. 

What are you plans for the future? 

I have always been fascinated by hospitality management. Therefore, I would be interested to work in this field in the future. After IB, studying in a Swiss hospitality management school could be a choice. 

But I think that it is important to keep my options open and I am also considering economics and management studies in a UK university or in a French business school.
