Gateway student reaches the top at London ALs

Nishan Srishankar of Gateway College Colombo has secured five A Stars at the 2011 GCE Advanced Level examination. His achievement of reaching the highest possible grade in all the subjects he sat for (Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Applied ICT) was the highlight of the Edexcel results that were released last week.

Nishan has already begun his higher studies in the United States. His outstanding performances throughout his school career has helped him to obtain a full scholarship to study at WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute), which is one of the oldest technological universities in the USA that has been listed as one of the top engineering universities by the Huffington Post (on par with MIT, CALTECH, University of Chicago etc).

Nishan has been a star in academics during his career at Gateway College, spanning over 13 years. He achieved 11 A Stars at the IGCSE Examination. Mr. Srishankar, Nishan's father, thanks the school's Board of Directors, the Headmaster and all the teachers for his son's achievements and says that Nishan's success, without exaggeration is due to their untiring efforts and the frequent and direct interaction with his son. He also goes on to state that the Directors, Headmaster and the teachers are understanding and are easily approachable at any given time, during or after school hours to discuss the progress of his son’s school activities.

Mr. Srishankar is of the view that Nishan achieved these results due to the structured school curriculum and the examination process the school has from Primary to Secondary and that he selected the best "Educational Institution" in Sri Lanka for his son's education which is affordable and maintains the Sri Lankan culture. Mr. Srishankar also expresses his gratitude to the school for awarding a full scholarship during the year 2012/2013 for Nishan's Advanced Level studies.

Nishan is thankful to his Advanced Level teachers for coaching him periodically with classes during the vacations. He says that the individual attention he received helped him immensely to achieve the 5 A Stars at Advanced Level. Nishan was a Senior Prefect and was also actively involved in various MUN programmes, Chess tournaments, and other co-curricular activities during his school career.
