A student at Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School, 17-year-old Andrew Nge Jing Shuen sat for his International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGSCE) exams in November 2018 and gained the highest standard mark in the world for Mathematics (without coursework) and Additional Mathematics. For this excellent achievement, he was presented with a Global Cambridge Award with the recent Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards. 

“Andrew’s achievement is a testament to the Beaconhouse approach to holistic education and life-long learning. An approach that provides a balanced emphasis on academics, sports and other extra-curricular activities in service of developing well-rounded individuals that are fully equipped to excel in the global arena,” said Nicki Coombs, Executive Principal for Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School. 

Learning wasn’t always easy for Andrew and homework was a struggle due to low concentration earlier on in his education. “But things turned around for me thanks to the dedication, patience and encouragement of my parents, teachers and peers who motivated and encouraged me to never give up and always try my best,” he added. As he pursues the South Australian Matriculation, Andrew aspires to be a pharmacist and is intent on developing new medication that will potentially save lives. 

Annually, almost 1 million students from around the world participate in Cambridge International-based examinations. Taught in more than 1,900 schools in over 50 countries, Cambridge’s IGCSE programme represents the world’s largest provider of O Level qualifications.
