Forty-one Nepalese students have won awards from Cambridge Assessment International Education for their exceptional performance in the June 2016 and November 2016 Cambridge exam series. The awards recognise success in a range of Cambridge International AS & A Level subjects.
The students, from schools across Nepal, were congratulated at the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards ceremony, supported by the British Council, in Kathmandu on 7 April 2017.
This year, one student from Nepal – Samriddhi Shrestha – was awarded a prestigious Cambridge ‘Top in World’ award for her outstanding performance in Cambridge International AS Level Language & Literature in English. Thirty-two students received ‘Top in Country’ awards across a range of Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.
Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director South Asia, Cambridge Assessment International Education, said: 'It gives me immense pleasure to see students across Nepal show such passion for learning. Their outstanding results in Cambridge examinations is proof of their determination to achieve academic success, their teachers’ commitment and the constant support of their family and friends. Congratulations to all these students on their performance this year and I wish them every success in all of their future endeavours.'
Jim O'Neill, Country Exams Manager at British Council Nepal, said: 'The Cambridge curriculum helps students to learn and acquire the core skills and competencies of life like critical thinking and problem solving, making them lifelong learners. The coursework and range of subjects offered by Cambridge Assessment International Education helps students acquire a scientific temperament and holistic, global mind. It gives ample opportunity to students to explore and pursue wider areas of study in today's global context. It is a student-friendly curriculum that challenges, invigorates and helps children set high academic standards.'
