DUBAI, UAE, February 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
-Top Marks and Middle East Honours for Students from one of the Dubai's Leading Schools -
Students from Dubai Scholars Private School in Al Qusais have received top marks and Middle East honours having achieved some of the top scores in the Middle East according to the ACER's International Benchmark Test (IBT) 2016.
Six Dubai Scholars students have been awarded Certificates of Honour in the assessment that compares student performances internationally.
The IBT is a globally administered programme of assessments that assesses students from year groups 4 to 11 in English, Mathematics, and Science. It provides a high quality, skill-based assessment aligned to all major curricula that gives schools, students, and parents an insight into their performance through global comparisons.
The Certificates of Honour are given to the highest achieving student in each year group for the three subjects. Six of these Certificates of Honour were awarded to students from Dubai Scholars - topping the results from over 50,000 students in the Middle East that participated in the IBT. The results reflect Dubai Scholar's vision of advancing excellence and innovation, as well as its dedication to higher quality learning; a vision shared by all schools under the Scholars International Group umbrella.
The IBT educational assessment is recommended by KHDA so as to help benchmark the performance of Dubai Schools in relation to each other and the region in general.
"We're delighted with this fantastic achievement and congratulate all of our students on their results that highlight our ability to compete with the best students within the Middle East and the world," said Thelma Miranda, Head Mistress of Dubai Scholars. "This truly reflects Dubai Scholar's commitment to academic excellence while celebrating the unique characteristics of every one of our students," she added.
