Four students from Yew Chung International School Beijing recently received prestigious awards from Cambridge International Examinations acknowledging their outstanding performance in the June 2015 Cambridge examination series. The students received Top in China and Top in the World awards in the following subjects this year:
- Shuwen Liu – Foreign Language: Mandarin Chinese (Top in the World)
- Cecilia Yixuan Cao – Art and Design (Top in China)
- Gianna Cheok Tong Chun – Global Perspectives (Top in China)
- Atsuki Yamamoto – Physical Education (Top in China)
Last academic year, over 61,000 exam entries for Cambridge qualifications were made in mainland China alone with 90 students receiving Cambridge Outstanding Learners Awards, which demonstrates how exceptional each student’s performance was.
Additionally, of the international schools in Northern China, YCIS Beijing had the greatest number of “Top in China” achievers in Cambridge IGCSE examinations, with Shuwen posting a Top in the World score on her Foreign Language: Mandarin Chinese subject. The winners are invited to attend the Cambridge Outstanding Learners Award ceremony in Beijing on October 23. Congratulations to YCIS students!
