Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director, South Asia, Cambridge International, said “We are thrilled to see students across Nepal exhibit their desire for learning and accomplish their goals. These remarkable results in Cambridge examinations would not have been achieved without the efforts and devotion of teachers and constant support from the families of these students. Congratulations to all the students and we wish them all the luck for their future endeavors.”

Jim O'Neill, Country Exams Manager at British Council Nepal, said “The Cambridge curriculum encourages students to learn, explore and gain core skills and accomplishments making them lifelong learners. The coursework and range of subjects offered by Cambridge International provides ample opportunity to students to pursue wider areas of study. It is a curriculum that challenges, invigorates and helps children set high academic standards.”
