Cambridge International operates in partnership with the British Council in Nigeria. Lucy Pearson, Country Director, British Council Nigeria says: ‘At the British Council, we create international opportunities through our work in arts, English Language, education, administering exams and building stronger societies.

The exams we administer help people all over the world gain educational and professional development, so they are better positioned for success in life. Education is a key enabler for these opportunities, and we believe in ensuring young learners have access to world-class education and assessments which we have achieved through our partners Cambridge Assessment International Education and the schools in our Partner Schools Global Network (PSGN).’

Jefferson Iyanuloluwa Joshua from the Lifeforte International High School who received 1 Top in World,  3  Top in Nigeria and a  Best Across Eight in Cambridge O Levels for the June 2019 exam series said: ‘I am happy that my hard work and prayers had come to fruition.

Initially, I found the Cambridge programme a bit challenging because I had to take subjects like Economics and Business Studies which were new to me but the practical, application-based, learner-focused style of the programme meant that I was soon comfortable with those subjects and my other subjects and able to excel in them.’ He plans to go to Imperial College for a degree in Mechanical engineering.

Shreya Jindal from The Regent Secondary School, Abuja who received 1 Top in World, 4 Top in Nigeria and a Best Across Eight in Cambridge IGCSE in the June 2019 exam series, said: ‘The Cambridge programme builds a strong foundation for higher education.

Even though it requires you to study a specified syllabus, most of what you’re tested on is applied knowledge. This makes sure you really understand what you’re learning. My advice for other students is to firstly find out how you learn.

Don’t be afraid of trying different methods until you find what works best for you. The Regent employs various 21st-century learning ideas that have something to offer to everyone.

It is also really important to pay attention in class; you’d be surprised how much of the information actually sticks so you don’t have to go home and read everything again. Take advantage of all the resources provided by the school, and work with your teachers to get the best out of the system which offers holistic education.’ Shreya is currently doing her Cambridge International A Levels.

All the top-performing students will receive certificates from Cambridge International in recognition of their achievements.
