Best achievers in 'O & A' levels honoured

Lahore, Feb 29, 2008: An award ceremony "Brilliance in Pakistan 2007" was held on Thursday in honour of the Pakistani students who achieved the best results in the world in O and A levels under the UK examination boards including Edexcel and Cambridge.

A total of 26 students have topped in the world from June and November 2007 examinations for various Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and Edexcel, University of London syllabuses. As many as 120 high achieving students who topped in the City, Pakistan and in the world, were presented awards in the ceremony.

Regional Manager, South Asia, University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), William Bickerdike, Global Relationship Manager of Edexcel David Davies, Director Examination Services Pakistan of the British Council John Gildea and Deputy Director British Council in Pakistan Mark Stephens were present on the occasion while Vice Chancellor of the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) Dr Syed Zahoor Hassan was the chief guest. Award winning students and their proud parents attended the ceremony.

17 Lahori students top worldwide CIE list
Seventeen students from Lahore topped in the world for Cambridge O-level and A-level examinations. The students were divided into three categories - top in the world, top in Pakistan and top in Lahore.

Bickerdike commended the Pakistani students by saying that their performance had been brilliant consistently. He said the teachers had played a remarkable role by preparing the students for the examinations and taught them with passion and dedication.

He said the students had grabbed high positions, not only at the national level but also the international level. However, he said the performance of Lahori students was not as good as that of the student in Karachi.

"It has become a tradition for Pakistani students to attain the highest possible mark in their syllabus," he said, adding that the students were in competition with a large global cohort. "Students in Pakistan topped in four of the most challenging subjects - accounts, mathematics, literature and economics," he added. The students were also urged to continue working hard to achieve their desired goals.

Asad Khaild Ismail of the Lahore Grammar School outshined others in two subjects of O-level, literature in english and chemistry, while Anser Aftab of the Lahore College of Arts and Science got hold of three positions, in the subjects of history, sociology and law, to make it to the top in the world list.
