IGCSE Results: Our Students Win Overall Best in Nigeria 

The annual Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards ceremony organised by the British Council in recognition of best-performing students and innovative schools, which took place on the first week of July 2024, brought its flurry of excitement as students and their parents had smiles on their faces in sheer joy and anticipation of what was about to unfold.

The event which went well as expected, saw two of our students graduates, Oluwatobi Tobechukwu Michael Somorin and David Lotanna Ekenta-Ifeanyi, earn awards as Top in Country in Mathematics (without coursework) and Top in Country in Physical Education respectively, in the 2023 International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examination. However, the major highlight of the night was when Oluwatobi Tobechukwu Michael Somorin was further announced as the Overall Best Across Eight IGCSE Subjects in Nigeria for the year 2023.

In addition to students’ awards, our Lekki Campus was also honoured for its impactful contributions to best practice policies in Equality, Diversity, Inclusion, and Child Protection, as well as its efforts in promoting upward mobility for its employees.

This achievement marks the seventh consecutive year that our students have received Top in Country awards in various subjects such as Mathematics, English, Physics, Biology, Global Perspectives, Literature, French, and Drama etc. Notably, in 2016 when the British Council launched the Cambridge Learner Awards, one of our students, Honour Olatunji, was awarded Top in the World in Mathematics (without coursework).

Commending the achievements of these exceptional students, the Deputy Director of Education, Mrs Feyisara Ojugo, said,

We want to say a big congratulations to our extraordinary students and a big well done to their teachers for the role they played towards this wonderful achievement, and to sincerely thank their parents and everyone who contributed to their success,” Mrs Ojugo added.

The Cambridge IGCSE exam is an international exam taken by students, aged 14 to 16-year-olds. The exam is administered at the final secondary school year of various International schools in Nigeria, with the British Council and Cambridge Assessment International Education being the administrators.
