Winning entrants shortlisted by panel of leading human rights lawyers, academia and students from around the world.


Express June 22, 2011



A student of The City School Islamabad Campus has been included among the 10 able students selected from across the globe by the University of Warwick International Gateway for Gifted Youth (IGGY) programme.


The selection for the highly competitive commission is done internationally after a very challenging essay competition. The A’ levels student, Bakht Jamshaid Baryar, was selected after submitting an essay on, “Do you think complacency remains in your country after the perceived failure of the Copenhagen Summit?”

The winning entrants were shortlisted by a panel of leading human rights lawyers, academia and students from around the world.

In August 2010, Baryar was selected to attend the two-week long course “Global Leaders” on a scholarship, a programme of the University of Warwick that aimed to identify the top 5 per cent of youth in the world in terms of ability and intelligence. Bakht made an excellent contribution to the programme.
