Fifty-three Nepali students from 15 educational institutions were awarded the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award amid an award ceremony held in Lalitpur on Friday. The awards were presented in four categories. Sakrit Karmacharya for Cambridge International A Level in Computer Science from Malpi Institute, Prajita Budathoki for AS Level in General Paper from ‘GEMS’ Institute of Higher Education and Ritik Yadav for AS Level in Computer Science from Xavier’s International College was awarded for ‘Top in the World’ category.
Thirty-seven students were given the ‘Top in Nepal’ award, three were given ‘Best Across awards’ for June and November examination series and 12 students were awarded for ‘High Achievement’ for June and November examination series. Elaborating on the importance of such advanced courses in Nepal, Country Exams Manager at British Council Nepal, Jim O’Neill said, “I think the education sector needs a variety of options for parents and students so that they can prove themselves in different ways and serve different needs of different sectors. If there was no A level program in Nepal, we could barely have any idea about the abilities of Nepali students at the international level.”
