Student Sets Record
2001 - Riyadh, The
recent announcement of results for the International General Certificate
of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams June 2001 conducted all over the
world by the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (UCLES)
indicates that Abdullah Zafar Al-Syed, a Pakistani pupil of Manarat Boys
English School of Riyadh has secured all A* grades in all 8-subjects
he appeared. This unparalleled feat he achieved at the age of 14 only.
Interestingly, he obtained an A* in English First Language although the
Principal, Mr. Rizk Kamh, and the British teacher for English language,
both had expressed their opinion that non-English students would not be
able to get an A* in the First Language English examination. A great
majority of Manarat School students and their parents believe that tuition
is necessary for good grades in IGCSE.
To cater for this requirement, the School offers tuitions after the
regular school hours against additional fee.
Abdullah did not go for any tuition other than regular school
education, rather depended on his capabilities, and by the help of
Almighty Allah succeeded.
British GCSE or its international version IGCSE are successors of old O-level qualification---all conducted by University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (UCLES) throughout the world. About one-million students appear in IGCSE, O-level, or A-level exams all over the world. UCLES exams and syllabi are considered the most prestigious and of the highest standard all over the world.
British Council in Riyadh has confirmed that no one in the Kingdom has performed with all A* in eight subjects neither this year nor in the previous years. "This is the highest performance in IGCSE we ever witnessed", said the exam officer.
