It gives us great pleasure to announce that several of our students have been recognized with top awards by Cambridge for their recent IGCSE results. These are National and International awards for outstanding academic achievements, and the prizes will be given at an awards ceremony in December.
Please join us in congratulating:
- Kenneth Tng, who came 1st in the World for IGCSE Foreign Language Mandarin (with a 100% score) and is the recipient of the ‘Top in the World’ award.
- Anna Xie, who came 1st in China for both First Language English and World Literature. Thus, she is the recipient of two awards for her incredible performance in these subjects. Additionally, she had the 4th highest score for World Literature in the World.
- Lorenzo Cavalleri, who has been awarded a High Achievement Award for IGCSE Foreign Language in Italian.
We’d like to offer special congratulations to the English Department as this is the 4th year in a row that they have had the top scoring student in China for English and / or World Literature, and the 2nd time in the past 3 years that YCIS CP has had the top scoring student in China for First Language English.
We are very proud of all our student achievements at the IGCSE level. While the focus of this article is on these three high achieving students, it is worth noting that many of our IGCSE students reached their personal best and were too very successful in their exam performance, even if not specifically recognized by the exam board.
We hope you will join us all in recognising our student achievements and the great support given by our Secondary teachers.
