Cambridge International Examinations is delighted to announce the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards 2017, New Zealand. The awards celebrate the outstanding academic achievements of secondary school learners in the June and November 2016 Cambridge examination series.
One hundred and twenty-one learners received awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 26 outstanding learners who attained 'Top in the World'. In addition, New Zealand learners were awarded 64 'Top in New Zealand' awards and 46 'High Achievement' awards. In total, 139 awards were achieved across 92 Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International A Level syllabuses.
Three learners also received awards for achieving first place in ‘Best Across Five Cambridge IGCSEs’, ‘Best Across Four Cambridge International AS Levels’ and ‘Best Across Three Cambridge International A Levels’.
The award-winning learners have out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat Cambridge IGCSEs and Cambridge International AS & A Levels in June and November 2016. Their outstanding results will be recognised by employers and universities around the world as proof of academic excellence, depth of learning and the attainment of higher-level learning skills.
The awards were presented at the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award ceremony on Wednesday 15 February 2017. Roger Franklin-Smith, Cambridge’s Senior Manager, New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands, said: 'I am very proud to congratulate our learners on their outstanding results in the Cambridge examinations and to celebrate their hard work and talents together with their teachers, families and friends at this event. These achievements are a testimony to the unstinting dedication of our Cambridge teachers in providing the best learning support and guidance to our learners.
'As our learners step into the next stage of their lives, their Cambridge qualifications, recognised internationally by the world’s best universities, will open up endless opportunities for them. I wish them every success in their future.'
