KARACHI:

At least 40 Pakistani students topped different subjects all over the world and won ‘Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards’ in Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) examinations.

"CAIE is delighted to announce the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards in Pakistan. The awards celebrate the outstanding academic achievements of students in Pakistan in the June 2022 Cambridge examination," according to an official statement issued on Friday.

It said that many schools would be hosting individual awards ceremonies to celebrate their learners’ achievements.

"In total, 277 students in Pakistan received 304 awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 40 students who attained the highest marks in the world in a Cambridge exam, and 43 students who attained the highest marks in Pakistan in a single subject," it added.

The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards programme celebrates the success of learners taking Cambridge examinations in over 40 countries around the world.

The Cambridge International places learners at the centre of their international education programmes and qualifications which are inspired by the best in educational thinking.

"I am delighted to congratulate learners from Pakistan on their academic achievements in the June 2022 Cambridge examination series," CAIE Country Director Uzma Yousuf said.

She said that the awards reflect the talent and hard work of learners and acknowledge the dedication and commitment of both teachers and parents.

"We hope that this recognition of academic success will encourage learners in their future education and careers," she added.

The awards also celebrate the achievements of those learners who have been recognised for "High Achievement", based on outstanding performance in subjects which are not yet so widely taken in Pakistan, and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across several subjects.

The statement added that the winning learners out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat Cambridge O Levels, Cambridge IGCSEs and Cambridge International AS & A Levels examinations in June 2022 series.

“We all know that a quality education is the greatest driver to transforming communities, societies, and lives. Our students gathered here today are a testament to that, and I want to acknowledge all of you for your brilliance, your ambition, your strength, and for simply being outstanding," International Education at Cambridge University Press Director Ben Schmidt said.

The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are a group of awards issued by CAIE that recognise exceptional learner achievement in Cambridge examinations around the world.
