Outstanding Cambridge Checkpoint Results

Congratulations to our Year 6 and Year 8 students of 2017 who wrote the Cambridge International Checkpoint Examinations in English, Mathematics and Science. We are thrilled with their superb achievements:

Of the 24 students who wrote the international examinations, a total of 16 students attained scores above 90% (6.0) and a further total of 12 students attained scores of above 80% (5.0)

As a combined group average of all three subject areas, the following was achieved:

An average score of 5.1 (approximately 82%) for Grade 6 which is well-above the Global Average.

An average score of 4.3 (approximately 74%) for Grade 8 which is well-above the Global Average.

First and foremost, we congratulate the following three top students who attained full scores of the highest achievement (score of 6.0) for all three subject areas:

Suryanshu Morya (Grade 6)

Kainat Farooq (Grade 6)

Vidisha Rajeev Raut (Grade 6)

In addition to these students, we would also like to congratulate the following students who obtained two top scores of 6.0 in two of the subject areas:

The following students are also recognised for attaining a top score of 6.0 in at least one of the three areas:

Amie Vranken (Grade 6)

We are extremely proud of all the students for their diligence and dedication and congratulate them as well as their proud parents. Congratulations and well done, too, to the teachers who were involved in preparing these students; the commitment and excellence is acknowledged.
