Brighton College Dubai is celebrating exceptional mathematics GCSE results this week, with four Year 10 pupils and one Year 8 pupil achieving Grade 9 (A*) after sitting the examinations early in January.
Despite taking the examination 1.5 and 3.5 years ahead of most children, these gifted youngsters achieved the highest possible grade. Year 8 pupil Ibrahim has received his Grade 9 Maths GCSE certificate at just 12 years old; truly a testament to his determined efforts and to the excellent teaching standards for which the school is renowned.
Upon receiving his grade, Ibrahim said: “It feels amazing. I’m lost for words. It feels like it’s a real culmination of my hard work, my family’s support and my teachers, who have all helped me get to this point.”
