suis-pudong-top-igcse-resultsShanghai United International School (SUIS), Pudong Campus Secondary students achieved top IGCSE results this year. 100% of students gained A*-C grades and 78% A*-A grades. This stellar performance set a new record for the family of Shanghai United International Schools. 91% of students gained 5 A*-A or more grades. These results far surpass the UK average (62% A*-C, 25% A*-A) and many international schools offering IGCSE in China. Some 6 out of 14 subjects taken obtained straight A*-A grades for all students. These high performing subjects included Chinese, Maths, IT, Business Studies, Art and Spanish. Samantha De Stefano, who arrived in Shanghai with her family from her native country Venezuela two years ago with a smattering of English, gained 7 A*-A grades out of 8. Students gained an average of 8 IGCSEs. These exam results place SUIS Pudong as one of the leading international schools in the world.

Bonnie Cai, Head of Secondary at the school remarked, "We are so proud of our students. This success was built upon the core values of our school: teamwork, hard work and effective communication."

Owen Hu, who gained A* in seven subjects and A in one, is setting his sights on being admitted to one of the top universities in the US. He is currently working on a personal project to create an automatic information system on air quality to the school community. Subscribers via mobile phones may receive updates. He sees this as an excellent way to develop his passion for, and understanding of, computing and science.   

The Principal of SUIS Pudong Primary and Secondary Schools, James Morris, commented, "This is an extraordinary achievement. We congratulate not only our students but also our teachers and parents. It is particularly exciting for our younger students in Primary. It is inspirational to them to see how well the older students are faring, as it is an indication of what they might be able to achieve themselves when they progress through our school. We at SUIS Pudong are keen to build on this success for every one of our students in the new academic year."

SUIS Pudong is a unique school offering a whole-school ‘East meets West’ program based on the National Curriculum for England and the Jiangsu Curriculum for Chinese language and culture for students aged 5 - 18 years. All students must study the three world languages of English, Chinese and Spanish in the first three years of Secondary, underlining SUIS Pudong’s commitment to high quality international education. IGCSEs and Advanced Levels are studied in the last four years of Secondary (14 - 18 years). SUIS will prepare them for entry to the world’s finest universities and colleges.
