A Cambridge education is about supporting schools to help students become confident, responsible, innovative, reflective and engaged, and to fulfil their potential. We wish the students well as they build on this success, and we extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the award winners, their teachers and parents.

Ms. Anuradha Anekal, Principal, Deccan International School, Bengaluru, said: “We are delighted to see students being recognized for their passion for learning. There is a marked increase in the class average with more students scoring higher grades. The improvement in results proves that learners enjoy and take ownership of their own learning. It is also largely due to the flexibility in subject selection which allows them to pick subjects of their liking. The focus of Cambridge International curriculum is to develop a lifelong passion for learning. The curriculum facilitates attitudes and skill development in students that enables them to utilize these in areas essential for growth. The curriculum and assessment is designed keeping in mind the Cambridge Learner attributes.”

The award winners from schools across the country will be recognized for their impressive academic achievements at a Cambridge Outstanding Learner Awards ceremony early next year.

There has been a substantial increase in the popularity of Cambridge qualifications in India and around the world. Over 450 schools in India offer Cambridge programs and qualifications and the number is growing each year.
