More than 190 students in Malaysia from 58 schools were named top achievers at Cambridge International’s Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards.
Held at Holiday Villa Subang Jaya, the ceremony acknowledged the exceptional performance of 192 students in the June 2019 exam series for Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Levels.
This year’s ceremony saw a total of 199 awards given out. Among the recipients, 39 students were awarded Top in the World for Cambridge International AS Level Maths while eight students received Top in the World for Cambridge International A Level Maths. Awards were also presented to students who obtained first place in Malaysia within their respective qualification category: Best Across Three Cambridge International A Levels, Best Across Four Cambridge International AS Levels and Best Across Eight Cambridge IGCSEs.
Dr Ben Schmidt, Regional Director, Southeast Asia & Pacific, Cambridge International, said: 'I believe that education is the key to unlocking the doors of opportunity in our life’s journey. The process is endless, but every door that is opened is a new adventure to be had, and life is all about experiencing as many things in this world as humanly possible.
'Our young learners have taken new steps in this journey of self-development and this awards ceremony is a reward for their persistence and zeal. They continue to be an inspiration to other countries worldwide, as Malaysia is the only country where this awards ceremony is held twice a year, due to the impressive number of recipients.'
Ng Kim Huat, Country Director, Malaysia and Brunei, Cambridge International, added: 'Combined with the dedication of their educators and a structured curriculum, I believe the high achieving learners are well equipped with the appropriate knowledge and skills to help them progress further in their tertiary education and life. May these achievements motivate many more high achieving learners in the future.'
