Pakistani student breaks world record

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani students have bagged a plethora of As and A*s at the Edexcel, Cambridge International Examinations’ (CIE) International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and A-level exams, June 2013 session.

The Froebel’s International School’s (FIS) student Haroon Tariq has beaten the current world record and secured phenomenal 40 As across IGCSE, O-level and A-level subjects, spanning both humanities and sciences, such as human and social biology, Islamic religion and culture, physics, chemistry and global development. This is an outstanding feat of achievement, putting Pakistan at center stage and in the global spotlight.

The Froebelians undergo a rigorous curriculum through the academic year with a combination of curricular and co-curricular training aimed at grooming well-rounded, multifaceted achievers. This effort bears fruition at the end of each year as students take a step towards acceptance at some of the world’s best universities to advance their academic careers. The Froebel’s alumni regularly make their way to institutions such as the Cambridge University, Brown University, University of Warwick, The Agha Khan University and LUMS, many of whom are awarded substantial scholarships.

This year has proved a resounding success at FIS. Examination results have demonstrated a significant number of students securing up to 100% in English language and 99% in mathematics.

Commenting on the recent results, FIS Head Principal Shahmina Kamal said, “We feel honoured to be instrumental in shaping a competent youth for the Pakistan of tomorrow.”

A total of 199 students appeared for the IGCSE exams, securing 162 A*s and 124 As.

“I always remind students that success is a state of mind, they need to trust themselves as they always know more than they think they do. Also, it is kind of fun to do the impossible,” said FIS Head Department of Examinations Sahar Pirzada. “Surely enough, now Froebel’s has students setting world records for academic excellence achieving an unparalleled 40 As,” she added.

    I am writing this message as an affected teacher who is serving the Private Sector Schools for the last 6 years in different Schools in Islamabad including Froebels International School Islamabad. Teachers are considered as the most important pillar of Education Sectors, without whom no education institute can survive. Students are totally dependent on teachers for proper guidance. It is the standard of education against which the Educational institutes are charging heavy dues from Parents or in other words a good faculty is earning money for the institutes.

    But it is very sad to accept the fact that the Private institutions are not delivering what is rightfully due to the teachers. Institutions are hiring teachers without any contract so that they remain unaware of their rights. Many teachers are terminated before the start of summer vacations so that institutions do not have to pay their summer vacation salary against which they charge 3 months advance fee from all the students

    It is kindly requested to you to write against such malpractices going on frequently in Private Schools in Islamabad and advice how to proceed complaints to Government against all such schools
