Oliver, at Century Park Campus, was awarded Top in China for IGCSE World Literature which means that the English department has now produced the top student in China for that subject for four years in a row.
So Yun, at Gubei Campus, was awarded Top in China for Design and Technology. Gubei Campus now has produced Top in China/Top in World winners for Design and Technology for five out of the last six years.
These three students will receive awards at a special Cambridge Learner Awards ceremony that will take place this month. This year, the regional event will be hosted by Century Park Campus as they celebrate their tenth year as a recognized Cambridge school.
All of our students’ achievements on the IGCSE examinations are evidence of the effectiveness of YCIS’s global education approach. Congratulations go to all Year 12 students and the school for their excellent achievements. We wish them all the very best in their study for the IB Diploma Programme.
