Over a hundred Cambridge International students in Zimbabwe have been rewarded for their outstanding performance.
At an event in Harare 114 Cambridge students received prestigious awards for outstanding performance in the June and November 2017 exam series. The awards were for subjects taken in Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O Level and Cambridge International AS & A Levels.
The guest speakers were Paul Mavima Minister of Primary and Secondary Education and Simon Thomas, Deputy Head of Mission, British Embassy Harare. Congratulating the achievements of the award winners, Minister Mavima spoke about the work the ministry is doing to improve the quality of education in Zimbabwe, and their drive for an inclusive education system.
These awards recognise and celebrate exceptional achievement by students in Cambridge International examinations from over 40 countries around the world. In total 135 awards were given across the categories of: Top in the World, Top in Country, High Achievement (outstanding results in subjects which are not widely taken) and Best Across (Students who attain the highest cumulative marks over a number of subjects).
The event was supported by Cambridge International partners – the British Council Zimbabwe, Cambridge University Press, College Press and Higherlife Foundation.
Gerald Rocha from High Achievers Coach Educational Centre, who received a Top in Zimbabwe Award for Cambridge International AS Level History, said: 'I feel elated by winning the award. The Cambridge International programme was challenging, educating and engaging. I was constantly pushed to the limit and stimulated by it. In the end I became a globally educated student with practical skills that I acquired from the programme.
'I prepared for examinations using the High Achievers Coach Educational Centre’s Blast Master Approach, which helped me to understand the syllabus requirements, especially in answering typical examination questions using the diverse resources available from Cambridge International. I made use of the Cambridge International endorsed textbooks, which are rich with up-to-date information. I now have my eyes on Kent University in Canterbury, UK, to achieve my childhood dreams'.
