Students in Nigeria have been celebrating their success in Cambridge exams at a ceremony hosted by the British Council and Cambridge International in Lagos on 29 June 2018.
The British Council Recognition and Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards recognise exceptional achievement in Cambridge examinations. In total 86 students in Nigeria received 115 awards from Cambridge International for their performance in the November 2016 and June 2017 Cambridge examination series.
The winners included three students who achieved the highest marks in the world and 60 students who attained the highest marks in Nigeria in a single subject. The awards covered various subjects taken at Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O Level and Cambridge International AS & A Level.
Juan Visser, Regional Director, Cambridge International, Sub-Saharan Africa, said: 'Well done to the Cambridge top achievers in Nigeria. These awards put students in the best place possible for their future education and we wish them all the best going forward. I would be amiss if I did not also recognise the dedicated teachers without whom these achievements would not have been possible. Thank you, your commitment and passion is evident from these results.'
The British Council also awarded partner schools from the Partner Schools Global Network (PSGN) that exemplify best practice policies for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Child Protection.
Lucy Pearson, Country Director, British Council in Nigeria said: 'The British Council is committed to providing opportunities for young people to enhance their potential and possibilities for the future. Our partnership with Cambridge International to organise this award event is part of our commitment to encouraging young learners to strive for excellence in their academic pursuit.'
The ceremony was attended by students, parents and educators from Cambridge International Schools in Nigeria, as well as representatives from publishing partner and sponsor, Cambridge University Press.
