Celebrating one of our outstanding IGCSE 2018 students, Zaim Zambasri. Below Zaim shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements:
How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi?
It was an absolutely fantastic experience. Having joined BIS Abu Dhabi at the beginning of year 10, the support and guidance I’ve received from my teachers and peers alike is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I feel that the environment the school provides is one that promotes hard work, pushing our own limits and encouraging us to be the best versions of ourselves every day. I’ve truly loved every moment since the day I joined.
Are you happy with your results?
I’m extremely happy with my results, especially since I managed to find a balance between playing football competitively outside of school as well as my studies. Attempting to exceed my own personal academic targets whilst competing and training football 4 times a week was quite the challenge. Thankfully, it all worked out in the end. A regret I do harbor though is not being able to achieve a grade A in Arabic. Despite exceeding my predicted grade, I was only 2 marks off from the A grade.
What are you plans for the future?
I plan on continuing my academic studies here at BIS Abu Dhabi, pursuing my IB Diploma. Studying a combination of HL Physics, Math and Economics as well as SL Geography, English and AB French, I hope to eventually pursue a career in engineering. After leaving BIS Abu Dhabi I would like to continue my education through an undergraduate study, preferably somewhere abroad like the UK or the US.
