The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are a group of awards issued by Cambridge Assessment International Education to celebrate the outstanding achievements of students around the world who have demonstrated exceptional performance in the Cambridge IGCSE exams. The primary purpose of these awards is to recognise and celebrate the success of high-performing Cambridge learners in the Summer 2017 IGCSE series.

Highest Score in the World

The following students received the highest accolade of the ‘Top in World’ award which refers to the students who have gained the highest standard mark in the world for a single subject:

Emily Kim

Rahul Sharma

Emily and Rahul shared this incredible honour, both achieving the ‘Top in World’ award for Mathematics (without coursework) out of thousands of participating students. This achievement is even more remarkable when you consider that these two students took the exam a year early!

“I feel very grateful for receiving such a prestigious award because not many people have the opportunity like this and I am happy that my hard work has paid off.” – Rahul Sharma

Highest Score in Vietnam

The following students achieved the ‘Top in Country’ award which refers to those students who attained the highest standard mark in Vietnam for a single subject:

‘High Achievement’ is awarded to students who have achieved outstanding results in subjects which are not so widely taken and which, under the current criteria, would not qualify for ‘Top in Country’ Awards. The following students achieved the highest standard marks in Vietnam and were presented with the ‘High Achievement Award’:

Abhishek Patki - Computer Science

Khoa Bang Tran - Computer Science

Marwin Keeratibunharn - Drama

Fieke Evers - First Language Dutch

Principal of BIS HCMC Mr Anthony Rowlands is extremely proud of the achievements of our CIE Outstanding Learners; “The great majority have been students at the school for many years and several started with us in the primary school. It just continues to show the aptitude of our students and the structure we have established at BIS HCMC to support them to ‘Be Ambitious’ and achieve great heights. To be the best achieving students in Vietnam and in the world shows the quality of our students who are taught by quality teachers in a quality school.”

Cambridge IGCSE Curriculum

The Cambridge International Examination IGCSEs are recognised as the world’s most popular and academically challenging courses currently available to 14-16 year olds. As the incredible results of our students going on to study the IB Diploma indicate as well as the places offered to our students at the world’s leading universities, the IGCSEs represent an excellent and reputable pathway to success within the IBDP and beyond.

On behalf of the entire BIS Community we’d like to offer our sincere congratulations to each of our 15 BISHCMC ‘Outstanding Learners’.
