Aldar Academies students achieve 100% pass rate in IGCSE exams
Aldar Academies’ Al Yasmina School and Al Bateen Secondary School announced their IGSCE results with a 100% pass rate for the 2013/2014 academic year. This is the first set of IGCSE results for Al Bateen since the school opened in September 2011. Majority of students at the schools scored between 5A* – C, which underscores the high quality of education at Al Aldar Academies’ schools.
Subject-wise, students at both schools excelled in Arabic, English and Mathematics scoring a high number of A*-A grades in those subjects.
Principal of Al Bateen Secondary School, David Hutson, said, “The results achieved by our students are testimony to their commitment and hard work. They have not only excelled in their examinations, but in line with our education philosophy, have consistently participated in extra-curricular activities, which we believe will go a long way in developing them into future leaders. The school aims to equip all students with the skills, attributes and values required for success at university and their future careers. The staff of Al Bateen School join me in congratulating the students on their success and wish them the best for their future.”
Principal of Al Yasmina School, Timothy Hughes, said, “This is an amazing accomplishment for Al Yasmina School, following on from the recent success of our students in the A-Levels exams. Our IGCSE students experience a world-class education environment and that will help them as they further their careers. I wish them all the best as they move ahead with their choice of academics.”
