What does 'Top in the World' mean?

'Top in the World' refers to the learner who has gained the highest standard mark in the world for a single subject. This learner will be awarded the Cambridge 'Top in the World' award. There may be other learners in the world, or even in the same country, who scored exactly the same mark; since their achievement is equal they will receive equal recognition and will also be awarded the Cambridge 'Top in the World' award for that subject.

What does 'Top in Country' mean?

'Top in Country' refers to the learner who has gained the highest standard mark in your country for a single subject. This learner will be awarded the Cambridge 'Top in Country' award. There may be other learners in your Country who scored exactly the same mark; since their achievement is equal they will receive equal recognition and will also be awarded the Cambridge 'Top in Country' award for that subject.

What does 'High Achievement' mean?

'High Achievement' is awarded to learners who have achieved outstanding results in subjects which are not so widely taken and which, under the current criteria, would not qualify for 'Top in Country' Awards. Learners who achieve the highest standard marks in Country in a particular subject will receive the award.

What does 'Best Across' mean?

'Best Across' awards are issued to learners who have attained the first highest cumulative total standard marks over set number of subjects:

Cambridge IGCSE® or Cambridge O Level in eight subjects

Cambridge International AS Level in four subjects

Cambridge International A Level in three subjects

Learners who have achieved the minimum standard mark threshold in each of the specified number of subjects will be considered for the award. Those who have taken more than the required number of subjects for each award category will only have the subjects with the highest marks taken into consideration.

Cambridge International has introduced these awards to recognise sustained academic achievement over a range of subjects.
