SHARJAH: Students from the International School of Creative Science (ISCS), managed and operated by Beam, ranked among the top achievers for the Outstanding Pearson Learner Awards in the UAE and the World.

The top accolades were achieved in iGCSE Mathematics, Human Biology, Classical Arabic, Arabic First Language, Physics and A Level Business Studies.

This recognition comes in line with the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda to develop a first-rate education system that transforms the teaching methods and aims to rank students among the best in the world in different subjects, including the Arabic language.

Pearson is a UK based world leading education company which owns Edexcel, the global private education and assessments board.

Each year, Pearson recognises students around the world to help inspire and motivate learners and drive positive change in their lives.

Six students from the ISCS were acknowledged this year for their outstanding achievements under the categories; ‘Highest Mark in the UAE’, ‘Highest Mark in the Middle East’ and the ‘Highest Mark in the World’. The students are:

* Abdullah Ahmed, Highest Mark in the Middle East in iGCSE Physics;

* Ansari Mohammed Hamza, Highest Mark in the World in iGCSE Mathematics;

* Fatma Moustafa Ahmed Mohamed Eltayeb, Highest Mark in the UAE in iGCSE Human Biology;

* Heba Farid Abed, Highest Mark in the UAE in iGCSE Arabic (First Language);

* Luqman Obaid Rashid Al-Maani, Highest Mark in the UAE in iGCSE Classical Arabic;

* Aishah Anis, Highest Mark in the Middle East in A Level Business Studies. 

Samar Murad, Principal at International School of Creative Science, said: “It is an honour to have our students ranked among the top students not only in the region but also globally.

“This recognition is a true testament to our students’ and teachers’ commitment and determination to work hard and thrive for excellence in their respective subjects.

This summer, we were also very proud to announce the outstanding academic performance of ISCS students for the year 2016-17 in the iGCSE and AS/A Level exams.

The iGCSE students at ISCS achieved a 93% pass rate of A*-C compared with 66 per cent for UK students.

Of these, 59 per cent of all student grades were A*/A, compared to only 20 per cent for the equivalent UK students.

At AS and A Level, the results are equally impressive.

ISCS students achieved 35 per cent A*/A pass rate at A2 compared with 27 per cent in the UK, as well as 100 per cent A*-E passes in Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Arabic, Psychology and Business Studies. Our school’s aim is to provide the highest standards of education and teaching that reflect on the students’ academic development, as well as support the government’s vision to achieve a first-rate UAE education.”

“We are delighted to announce that ISCS learners have qualified for the Outstanding Pearson Learner Awards, under the Highest Mark in the Country, Middle East and the Highest Mark in the World category.

“These awards give educators the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of their learners and the hard work of their teachers.

“We extend our congratulations to the learners on their excellent results and our best wishes to the teachers and parents,” she concluded.
