‘A’ Star Achievements for YCIS Beijing Students in the IGCSE Course
An astonishing number of students achieved grades of A* or A while perhaps even more impressive was the extensive obtainment of distinctions and merits within the year group. 98% of students earned the awards of distinction and merit. This is certainly another fine academic performance to add to the already distinguished reputation YCIS Beijing has with regards to the IGCSE programme. A total of 51 students took the IGCSE examinations and the tremendous efforts of these students throughout the school year must be praised. The results they have achieved are just reward for the hard work they have devoted to their study and will have prepared them well for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in the coming years.
Russell Ng from Singapore achieved all A and A* scores in his IGCSE results across nine subjects and was delighted when he found out about his scores, “I was elated, over the moon. I owe a lot to my teachers at the school. One of the reasons me and my parents chose YCIS Beijing is because of its history of great results and we definitely made the right choice as is evident by how well all the IGCSE students did.” Nathan Drisner who obtained all A and A* grades echoed Russell’s statement regarding the support of his teachers during the IGCSE course, “We all studied very hard of course. Our teachers helped so much in terms of preparing us sufficiently for our exams but also within coursework. They allowed us a lot of creative space within the coursework which I personally enjoyed a lot and this probably added some extra motivation for us as we could really put a lot of passion into our work.”
The scores achieved within these examinations only further highlight the reasons behind YCIS’ “Cambridge Award for Excellence in Education” in 2012 and follows the achievements of previous years including “Cambridge Top in the World IGCSE Award”, “Top in China IGCSE Award”, “High Achievement in IGCSE Awards” and “Best Across Nine Subjects IGCSE Award”.
Congratulations must go to all students for the fantastic achievement and all those within the YCIS Beijing community wish them well for their further study in the IBDP.
