Cambridge International has announced the winners of its prestigious Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards for 2020-21. This year, 150 Indian students have scooped 177 of the highly sought-after Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards for 2020-21 as compared to 127 students last year.
Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are the hallmark of exceptional student achievement in Cambridge exams around the world. They recognise students’ achievements in a wide range of Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Level subjects.
The global awards acknowledge student success in four categories – ‘Top in the World’, ‘Top in Country’, ‘High Achievement Award’ and ‘Best Across Subjects. Out of 150 unique winners across the country, nine winners are from Rajasthan, out of which four students have won ‘Top in the World’ and four students have won ‘Top in Country’.
Altogether, 42 students in India scooped the highly coveted ‘Top in the World’ award, which is awarded to students who achieve the highest marks in the world in a particular subject. In addition, 65 won the ‘Top in Country’ award and 17 won the ‘Best across Subjects’ award.
Mahesh Shrivastava, Regional Director, South Asia, Cambridge Assessment International Education said, “I would like to congratulate all of our award winners across India for their truly amazing achievements in their recent exams. What they have all achieved, during such a challenging year is incredible. The pandemic has continued to disrupt teaching and learning around the world, creating a great deal of uncertainty for students and teachers alike. Yet our students and their teachers have all worked incredibly hard to overcome these challenges and have maintained their focus on teaching and learning. I applaud all of our winners. These awards recognise their resilience and dedication and each of them should be very proud of what they have achieved. I wish them all the very best for the future.
“On behalf of everyone at Cambridge International, I would also like to thank and congratulate each of the winners’ schools, teachers and families, for everything they have done to support these students throughout their studies and help them to achieve this success today.”
Alka Goel, Head of School, Jayshree Periwal International School, Jaipur said: “Congratulations to all the outstanding Cambridge learners for giving us the opportunity to celebrate their grit, adaptability and resilience. Awards and accolades are pivotal in a student's life as positive reinforcements. Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards just go a step further to push them to give their best. I am delighted with the success of our students. It means a lot to us when our students' hard work is recognized by Cambridge International in different categories of Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award.”
The awards provide an opportunity to recognise the hard work, dedication and outstanding achievements of the very best Cambridge students around the world. The achievements of those who won awards this year are especially impressive, as many of them have had to adapt how they learn when schools were closed, and teaching and learning couldn’t take place face-to-face in a classroom.
