Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, Egypt

            Cairo, 28 January, 2016 – Cambridge International Examinations and the British Council in Egypt are delighted to announce the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, Egypt. The awards celebrate the outstanding academic achievements of secondary school learners in Egypt in the June 2015 Cambridge examination series.

Two ceremonies will be held in collaboration with the British Council in Cairo and Alexandria. Many schools will also be hosting individual awards ceremonies to celebrate their learners’ achievements. 

97 learners will receive awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 4 learners who achieved the highest marks in the world and over 34 learners who attained the highest marks in Egypt in a single subject. 

The awards also celebrate the achievements of those learners who have been recognised for ‘High Achievement’ based on outstanding performance in subjects which are not yet so widely taken in Egypt, and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects.

These outstanding results will be recognised by employers and universities around the world as proof of academic excellence.

Waseem Al Hanbali, Regional Director, Middle East and North Africa, Cambridge International Examinations says: “I am very proud to congratulate learners across Egypt on their outstanding results in the Cambridge examinations. It is encouraging to acknowledge the high standards of education offered by schools across the country, reflected through these exceptional results. These achievements are a credit to the partnerships which Cambridge has established with schools and demonstrate the dedication and commitment of teachers and support provided by families and friends, and learners’ determination, and passion to succeed. This success defines them not just as learners, but as Cambridge learners. I wish them every success in their future.”
