Cambridge International rewards Nigerian students
Cambridge International, in partnership with the British Council in Nigeria, has recognised Nigerian students awards for their top performances in the November 2020 examination series.
Fifty three students were granted the prestigious Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards in various subjects at Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O’ Level and Cambridge International AS & A Level.
The award winners include three students, who have excelled in Sociology, Agriculture and Law to receive the ‘Top in the World’ honour.
Cambridge International also granted 39 ‘Top in Nigeria’ awards to learners, who achieved the highest standard mark in their country for a single subject, 19 ‘High Achievement’ awards and three ‘Best Across’ awards to students, who attained the highest cumulative total standard marks over a set number of subjects.
Country Director, British Council Nigeria, Lucy Pearson said their primary purpose was to celebrate and recognise the success of high-performing Cambridge learners.
“At the British Council, we create international opportunities through our work in Arts, English Language, education, administering exams and building stronger societies. The exams we administer continue to help people all over the world gain educational and professional development, so they are better positioned for success in life and their careers. Education is a key enabler for these opportunities, and we believe in ensuring young learners have access to world-class education and assessments which we have achieved through our partners Cambridge Assessment International Education and the British Council Partner School,” she said.
Cambridge International Regional Director for sub-Saharan Africa, Juan Visser said: “Students around the world faced one of the most challenging years ever, with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting teaching and learning. Despite this, we are delighted to see that students in Nigeria still excelled at their examinations and managed to produce these outstanding results. This points not only to the dedication of learners and their teachers, but also to the quality of the schools in Nigeria registered to offer Cambridge programmes.”
