“Congratulations to both winners,” said Mr Meredith. “It should be recognised that Raksina entered the examination as an early entry candidate. She will sit for the remainder of her IGCSE examinations in May and June 2017. Additional congratulations to Maximilien who this year also received the BISP Orange Riband award for the top student of Year 11.”

BISP has now taken out the Top in Thailand prize for International Mathematics in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016.

Asked how he felt about winning the Top in Thailand award for Foreign Language French, Maximilien Cloesen said: “I am fortunate and grateful to have been taught by excellent teachers who know the Cambridge IGCSE French curriculum very well and I feel honoured to have been awarded with the Top in Thailand certificate.

“Studying IGCSE courses was challenging but I learnt that endeavour and motivation always leads to success. There is still a great deal of work ahead but obtaining this certificate is definitely a very significant milestone.”

Top in Thailand award winner for International Mathematics Raksina Phongsermsuk said, “At first, I felt really shocked to hear that I had won the Top in Thailand award. It was a very pleasant surprise. Then I felt a real sense of accomplishment as I had been putting a lot of effort into maths. It made me feel more confident in my skills and myself.”

Learners who achieve the highest standard marks in Thailand in a particular subject will receive this award.
