The latest A-Levels and IGCSE exam results are out — and UAE students got ‘impressive’ scores, school heads reported on Thursday.
Students in Years 11, 12 and 13 received either final grades or modular results on Thursday across subjects like Arabic, English, biology, chemistry, physics, geography, mathematics and statistics. These results (A-Levels and AS-Levels) can be used for getting into universities in the future.
The UK government cancelled the usual GCSEs and A-level exams this year because of Covid-19 restrictions, so several international boards held modular exams in January for IGCSEs and international A-levels.
Two Brighton College Dubai pupils achieved a 100 per cent Grade 9 (A*). Simon Crane, headmaster of the school, said: “I am incredibly proud of the achievements of our first GCSE pupils who have exceeded their targets. Given the worldwide exam uncertainty, this year has been a demanding one and we do not underestimate the amount of effort that has been required from both pupils and teachers who have had to adapt to a fluid learning style.”
IGCSE is equivalent to the GCSE qualification for which students appear in the exams in Years 10 and 11, while an A-level is a qualification offered across different subjects to students in Years 12 and 13.
