Students at the British International School Hanoi (BIS Hanoi) achieved an impressive pass rate of 92.4 percent in this year’s International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations, with 46.5 percent being A*/A level.

The students had the privilege to celebrate their outstanding achievements at the British Ambassador's Residence in Hanoi.

Forty-four BIS Hanoi students were honoured to have their certificates presented by British Ambassador to Vietnam Gareth Ward and BIS Hanoi Principal Sue Hill at an award ceremony hosted at the British Embassy in Hanoi on October 11.

Dr. Ben Schmidt, regional director of Cambridge Assessment International Education, was also present at the ceremony.

Two students, Hoang Hai Ha and Vu Duc Hang Giang, were also handed “Top of the World” certificates for scoring the highest mark in the IGCSE Mathematics papers out of over 45,000 students who took the exam internationally.

The BIS Hanoi students achieved a perfect score of 100 percent on the test.

"I am especially proud of our students today as we look at the incredible successes achieved in our IGCSE results,” Hill said.

“Our students have again achieved standout scores.”

“Alongside our students’ hard work and commitment, our teachers and staff have played a vital role in today’s results and deserve our heartfelt thanks and recognition,” the principal added.

The 44 students are expected to continue pursuing their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in order to apply for top universities across the world, according to BIS Hanoi.

Addressing the students and their parents at the ceremony, Dr. Schmidt said that the IGCSE is the best preparation that the young people could take for universities and beyond.

“The future is bright for Vietnamese children, especially when they’re getting amazing results at BIS Hanoi with IGCSE,” said Ambassador Ward.

The IGCSE is an internationally respected qualification studied by students aged 14-16.

Highly valued by universities, the courses cover a broad range of subjects including languages, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, computer science and more.

It is a highly academically challenging qualification and an excellent preparation for students before they embark on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
