Celebrating one of our outstanding IGCSE 2018 students, Tomaz Favrin. Below Tomaz shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements:
How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi?
The IGCSEs were a very stressful but rewarding process. I had to improve a lot during the two years, especially with my organisational skills, so it was very helpful. I also managed to learn more about how I learn and memorise information, which has proven to be very useful for my IB experience, as I am now more organised and able to learn the content effectively and efficiently. My teachers were also very helpful throughout the two years, as their ability to make lessons interesting and captivating made me enjoy learning the topics and want to work even harder to learn all the content I needed throughout my IGCSEs.
Are you happy with your results?
I am very happy with my results, especially with economics which I had a lot of difficulty with at the beginning but managed to improve with hard work and help from both my parents and my teacher to achieve my A. While I know that there were some areas which I could have done better, I am happy that all my hard work and my teachers’ efforts paid off in the end.
What are you plans for the future?
I plan to go into filmmaking, as I have always loved to craft and the process behind it. I love to learn and challenge myself, and with filmmaking I feel that it would allow me to always learn new things and improve as I go. It combines all of my passions for art and storytelling with the ability to explore and continuously improve my skills.
