Mr Anthony Rowlands: Weekly Update 03/11/17

03 November 2017

Each year, students in Year 11, along with a smaller number in Year 10, sit the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) IGCSE examinations. As had already been announced in August 2017, our students really did perform exceptionally well, achieving results that can be compared with the best international schools globally.

  • IGCSE Outstanding Learners
  • IGCSE Outstanding Learners

Each year, CIE announce the winners of their Outstanding Learner Awards including the two following categories:

  • Top in Country
  • Top in World

This week I am extremely pleased to pay tribute to the following students for achieving  ‘Outstanding Learner Awards’:

Top in Country Award

‘Top in Country’ refers to the learner who has gained the highest standard mark in a country (in our case Vietnam)  for a single subject. The BIS HCMC CIE ‘Outstanding Learner’ and best in Vietnam are:

Top in World Award

‘Top in the World’ refers to the learner who has gained the highest standard mark in the world for a single subject which is a phenomenal achievement. The BIS HCMC CIE ‘Outstanding Learner’ and best in world are:

Emily Kim


Rahul Sharma


Emily and Rahul are joint winners of the Maths ‘Top in World’ Award and, what makes this even more special, is that both students took the Maths IGCSE examination a year early whilst they were in Year 10.

As Principal of the British International School Ho Chi Minh City, I am extremely proud of the achievements of our CIE ‘Outstanding Learners.’ The great majority of them 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.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Anthony Rowlands, Principal
