Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are a group of awards issued by Cambridge Assessment International Education who recognise exceptional learner achievement in Cambridge examinations around the world.
Cambridge awards are calculated using stringent and confidential criteria that operate to maintain high educational standards and values in awards across countries, subjects and qualification levels. Learners only receive awards if they have achieved outstanding results.
Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards were introduced to celebrate the achievements of learners who outperform their peers. For this reason it is necessary to ensure that the peer group is sufficiently large. We set entry thresholds to ensure that award-winning learners are selected from a sufficiently representative sample where relevant. This is to maintain the integrity and value of awards.
What does ‘Top in the World’ mean?
‘Top in the World’ refers to the learner who has gained the highest standard mark in the world for a single subject. This learner will be awarded the Cambridge ‘Top in the World’ award. There may be other learners in the world, or even in the same country, who scored exactly the same mark; since their achievement is equal they will receive equal recognition and will also be awarded the Cambridge ‘Top in the World’ award for that subject.
Two of our students received Top in the World awards:
At A Level: Sophie Berlouis was 8th in Geography.
At IGCSE Level: Sanjeetha Pillay was 4th in ICT, 5th in Biology, 6th in Geography and 7th in Chemistry
What does ‘Top in Country’ mean?
‘Top in Country’ refers to the learner who has gained the highest standard mark in your country for a single subject. This learner will be awarded the Cambridge ‘Top in Country’ award. There may be other learners in your Country who scored exactly the same mark; since their achievement is equal they will receive equal recognition and will also be awarded the Cambridge ‘Top in Country’ award for that subject.

At A Level : Maths – Dylan Low Seck

What does ‘High Achievement’ mean?
