The ‘toppers’ from schools across the country will be recognised for their outstanding academic achievements with an Outstanding Cambridge Learner certificate.

Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director South Asia, Cambridge International Examinations, said: “It gives us immense pleasure to see learners across India exhibit their passion to succeed. Their outstanding results in the Cambridge Examinations are a proof of the dedication and commitment of their teachers and the selfless support from their family and friends. We congratulate all these learners on their performance this year and wish them every success in all their future endeavours.”

Biju Sudarsan, Director, Vikaasa World School, said: “It is encouraging to see our very first batch of Cambridge IGCSE students and their parents understand how this programme has allowed them to be creative, while remaining competitive. Parents have realised that Cambridge International Examinations focus on the application of skills acquired and knowledge gained rather than mere imitation of knowledge. It is encouraging to see that children with varied capabilities have multiple options in courses that suit them, that do not straitjacket them into traditional learning.”

There has been a substantial increase in the popularity of Cambridge qualifications in India and around the world. There are over 370 Cambridge schools in India. There has been a 17 per cent increase in the number of entries for all qualifications in India since 2015, which includes the Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge International AS Level and Cambridge International A Level. Cambridge International Examinations is part of the University of Cambridge.
