Pakistani students top 9 in A Levels

ISLAMABAD, Feb 23(Daily Times): Nine Pakistani students were world toppers in different A Level's subjects under the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Among them was Fahad Mahmood of City School, Islamabad, who scooped two prizes.

Another 55 Pakistanis topped different subjects in the O Level examinations conducted last June. The successful students were presented awards at a High Achievers ceremony organised by the British Council in partnership with the CIE.

Fahad took the honours in Thinking Skills and Physics to emerge as the world topper. He also received an award for topping chemistry in Pakistan. His proud mother collected the awards on his behalf to a thunderous applause from parents and students. Simon Lebus, Cambridge Assessment group chief executive, and Ms Jo Bakowski, the British Council director, gave away certificates and prizes to the High Achievers.

Terming as fantastic the achievements of the students, Lebus said that schools in Pakistan had great academic records and that teaching methods always brought unbelievable results.

William Bickerdike, the University's regional manager in South Asia, pointed out that the Pakistani students had shown a marked improvement. "There were only three world toppers last year in A Level, but we have nine this time," he said, adding "Similarly, there are more toppers in O Levels than last year." "We have made comparisons and seen that students from Pakistan achieve high grades, which is the result of the excellent teaching in Pakistani schools," he said.

The students who topped the world in the O Level from the Islamabad region were Ali Moeen Nawazish in Computer Science (St Mary's Academy, Rawalpindi), Alyna Ahmed in English Literature (Khaldunia High School, Islamabad), Farhan Shaukat in Mathematics Syllabus-D (St Mary's Academy, Rawalpindi), Myra Ejaz in Economics (Islamabad Prepatory School) and Sameea Najam Butt in History and World Affairs since 1919 (Headstart School, Islamabad).

Fahad was the only A Level student taking world honours from Islamabad. Four of the students in the highest award category are from Lahore and another three from Karachi. Syeda Saba and Zehra Zaidi achieved the highest marks in Islamabad across five Cambridge International A Levels while Hira Yousaf received the award for being best in nine International O Levels.
