The Cambridge University IGCSE is the world's most popular international curriculum for students ages 14 to 16 years old.

Nineteen BISB students received the "Cambridge Scholar Award" for academic achievement in at least three subjects on the 2013 exams. Students must receive a B or higher on three subject exams to receive this award.

BISB has a strong history of high performance on the Cambridge IGCSE exams. 

In 2012, five BISB students received the "Top in the USA Award," gaining the highest overall grade in a particular subject, and 12 students received the "Cambridge Scholar Award" for academic achievement in at least three subjects.  

One BISB student received the "Cambridge Scholar Award" for overall best results in several subjects and two students received the "Cambridge Scholar Award" for overall best results in nine subjects in 2012 (both awards are handed out to only three students in the USA each year). 

Our students' scores on the 2013 exams mark another year of strong performance by our students. Congratulations to all our students, who have taken control of their own learning and succeeded at a prestigious level.
