Forty-nine learners received awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 13 learners who achieved the highest marks in the world and 28 learners who attained the highest marks in Bangladesh in a single subject.

The awards also celebrated the achievements of those learners who have been recognised for 'High Achievement' based on outstanding performance in subjects which are not yet so widely taken in Bangladesh. They also recognised learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects. The winning learners out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat for examinations in Cambridge `O' Level, Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge International AS and `A' Level subjects.

These outstanding results are recognised by employers and universities around the world as proof of academic excellence.
