University of Cambridge International Examinations and British Council are delighted to announce the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, Nepal. The awards celebrate the outstanding academic achievements of secondary school learners in Nepal in the June 2013 and November 2013 Cambridge Examination Series.
The awards will be held at Hotel Everest in Nepal on 17th February 2014 at 10.30am. Mr Guy Harrison, Deputy Head of Mission British Embassy, Di Palmer, Director of Assessment Cambridge International, Mr William Bickerdike, Regional Manager South Asia, University of Cambridge International Examinations, Mr Narayan Gopal Malego, Honourable Secretary of Education, and Brendan McSharry OBE, Country Director BC Nepal will be attending the ceremony to present the prizes.
Over 38 learners will receive awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including two learners who achieved the highest marks in the world.
The awards also celebrate the achievements of those learners who have been recognised for ‘High Achievement’ based on outstanding performance in subjects which are not yet widely taken in Nepal and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects. The winning learners out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat examinations in Cambridge International AS and A Levels. These outstanding results will be recognised by employers and universities around the world as a proof of academic excellence.
Suzy Chowdhury, Schools Development Manager said: "I am very proud to congratulate learners across Nepal on their outstanding results in the Cambridge examinations. It is encouraging to acknowledge the high standards of education offered by schools across the country reflected through these exceptional results. These achievements are a credit to the partnerships which Cambridge has established with schools. They demonstrate the dedication and commitment of teachers, support provided by families and friends, and learner’s determination and passion to succeed. This success defines them not just as learners, but as Cambridge learners. I wish them every success in their future."
