Cambridge International Examinations is delighted to announce the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards in Nepal. The awards celebrate the exceptional academic performance of secondary school learners in Nepal in the June 2015 and November 2015 Cambridge examination series.

The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards were presented at Hotel Himalayan, Kupondole, Kathmandu on 21 April 2016. The Honourable Vice President of Nepal, Mr. Nanda Kumar Pun, attended the ceremony as the chief guest.

48 learners from 14 schools received awards, including 5 learners who achieved the highest marks in the world and 26 learners who attained the highest marks in Nepal in a single Cambridge International AS & A Level subject. Students excelled in a diverse range of subjects including English Literature, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Business Studies.

The awards also celebrated 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 Nepal, and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects. The winning learners out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat for Cambridge International AS & A Level examinations.

Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director, South Asia, Cambridge International Examinations, said that today’s students need a wider range of skills to equip them for the world ahead of them: “We are delighted to see such great performance by our learners in Nepal. It demonstrates their dedication and hard work to succeed academically and the commitment of their teachers. Our qualifications are highly regarded by universities and employers internationally and we are confident this achievement will equip our learners for higher education and future endeavours in life out of school.”

Dr Jovan Ilic, Country Director British Council Nepal said, “Congratulations to Cambridge learners on their excellent results. These are particularly impressive given the very challenging year that Nepal had in 2015, and we are delighted that students have managed to perform so well.”

“It has been a difficult year for Nepal in so many ways. The young people receiving awards at this event have shown incredible standards of hard work and dedication in order to overcome these challenges, and this has impressed me deeply. Thus, I am proud to celebrate this success, and hope that it signals a much happier and fortunate year for this country and its youth” said Steve Adams, Director Examinations South Asia, British Council.

The students received their awards at a ceremony hosted by Cambridge International Examinations and British Council this month and attended by Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive, Cambridge International Examinations, Ruchira Ghosh, Cambridge Regional Director, South Asia along with Dr Jovan Ilic, Country Director, British Council Nepal and Steve Adams, Regional Director Examinations South Asia.
