Dulwich Students Top IGCSE Results in China

Dulwich College Shanghai follows the English National Curriculum up to Year 9, at which point its students embark upon a two-year programme that culminates in sitting the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations.

IGCSE examinations are based around the UK GCSE qualification but with adaptations to meet the needs of international students. The University of Cambridge Internal Examinations Board (CIE) is a major provider of international qualifications for international students between the ages of 14 – 19 years old, offering examinations and qualifications in more than 180 countries and regions.

Each year, CIE presents awards to students who have produced exceptional performances, and Dulwich College Shanghai students picked up five of these prestigious awards this year.

The star performer was Jennifer Lin who received Top in China awards for English Literature, Mathematics and Spanish. She was the only student in China to win more than one award. Maithreyi Raman received Top in China for French, and Jessica Barton was Top in China for Drama.

The Top in China award recognizes students who have received the highest exam result in China for a single Cambridge IGCSE subject. These five awards are testimony to the calibre of the students and to the strength of programmes offered at Dulwich College Shanghai.

Mr. Paul Friend, Headmaster at Dulwich College Shanghai, said, “This is an impressive achievement for our students. I congratulate them, their parents and our dedicated staff.”

The 2009 results build on the 2008 IGCSE exam success of two College students who achieved equally impressive high scores. Michael McBride, current Head Boy, gained the highest mark in China for Economics, and Garrett Tan the highest mark in China for English Literature; Nisha Tucker received a top 10 highest score for biology globally.

The IGCSE’s are important examinations for 16 year olds and are recognised by some of the leading universities in the world, making it an ideal qualification for internationally-mobile students.
