Sri Lankan students excel at Cambridge Outstanding Achiever Awards
University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the British Council jointly hosted the Cambridge Outstanding Achiever Awards ceremony on November 21 in Sri Lanka.

Cambridge Outstanding Achiever Awards recognise students who have achieved the highest marks in a single Cambridge O/Level or International A/AS Level subject, or a group of subjects, in the November 2008 and June 2009 Cambridge examination session.

The awards were presented by Kathy Mills, a senior CIE Education Consultant. The students were also congratulated by Ian Chambers, CIE Regional Manager South Asia; Nirmali Hettiarachchi, CIE Regional Representative for Sri Lanka; and Kishore Roy, Country Exams Manager and Panchalika Kulatunga Deputy Country Exams Manager of the British Council.

Two students received prestigious Top in the World awards at the ceremony. Fathima Rehaana Seyad Mohammed and Nilupuli Ariyaratne, both from Lyceum International School, Nugegoda, outperformed Cambridge students worldwide in the Cambridge O Level Human and Social Biology examination in November 2008.

Every year, thousands of Cambridge International A Level students gain places at top universities worldwide. Taken in over 125 counties, Cambridge International A/AS Level qualifications are internationally recognised as excellent preparation for further education and employment.
Nirmali Hettiarachchi commented: 'CIE is delighted to have this opportunity to recognise the achievements of Sri Lankan students. Students have performed exceptionally at all levels and this event recognises their success, alongside the teachers and family members who have supported them during their studies.
