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.
