Reports from Cambridge International have revealed continuous growth of its qualifications around the world and most especially in Nigeria.

Regional Director, Cambridge International, Juan Visser, who disclosed this, said the recently released results of its June 2019 examination series to thousands of schools globally, show a higher percentage of Nigerian schools writing and qualifying for the examination.

“Examination entries across all qualifications have risen again by four per cent internationally and 14 per cent in Nigeria for 2018/2019. The number of schools now teaching Cambridge International programmes has grown by six per cent internationally this year and by 10 per cent in Nigeria, which now has more than 360 schools located across the country.


“There has also been a six per cent increase in the number of students taking Cambridge exams internationally and a 12 per cent increase in the number of students taking Cambridge examinations in Nigeria. There has been a significant increase in IGCSE and AS and A level this year in the country with more than 22,000 entries, an increase of 14 per cent on last year.

“Our examinations have proven to be an excellent platform for learners to get into, and get on, at institutions of higher learning. Congratulations to the schools, the dedicated teachers, and not least the students. These results have been duplicated in the many countries across the Sub-Saharan region in which our schools operate, proving there is a strong demand for robust programmes of study supported by valid and reliable exams trusted by universities across the region.”

He further said, the most popular Cambridge IGCSEs in Nigeria are mathematics, biology, and physics. The most popular Cambridge International AS and A Level subjects are physics, chemistry, and biology.
