Continuing a tradition of excellence, seven regional, national and global awards have been bagged by our students in the May/June 2014 IGCSE examination session! This year too, the declaration of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards by CIE brought in its wake intense excitement, pride and joy for the entire school community.

Every year, CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) ranks students on a regional, national and global basis for their performance in individual subjects as well as groups of subjects in Cambridge qualifications. ‘High Achievement’ awards are also given for outstanding performance by students in CIE subjects which are not yet so widely taken.

This year too, three of our students, Raj M. Gauthaman, Fabeha Raheel and Uzma Liaquat Khan have done the school proud with their outstanding academic achievements in their IGCSE examinations by out-performing thousands of students who sat Cambridge IGCSE examinations the world over in May/June 2014.

Heartiest congratulations to the following students, their proud parents and educators at Al Waha:
