    • YCIS’s Secondary students have once again achieved excellent results in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations. In 2016, two YCIS students received straight As (A* and A) in ELEVEN subjects and three other students received TEN straight As (A* and A), while eight students earned NINE straight As (A* and A).


      An impressive number of students achieved grades of A* or A while perhaps even more encouraging was that almost 85% of the cohort obtained the awards of distinctions and merits.


      Their achievements are highlighted below:

       No. of Year 11 students sat for IGCSE exams135 
       No. of Distinction awards 51
       No. of Merit awards 63
       No. of students who obtained 8 or more A* or A 23
       No. of students who obtained 7 or more A* or A 36
       No. of students who obtained 6 or more A* or A 41
       Percentage of A*- A grades 38% of all subjects taken
       Percentage of A* - C grades 80% of all subjects taken

      Furthermore, YCIS students also claimed Top in the World and Top in Hong Kong awards in the June 2015 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, which recognise exceptional learners. Details are as follows: 

      Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards 2015 Subjects 
       Top in the World First Language Chinese
       Top in Hong Kong International Mathematics
       Global Perspectives (2 students)

      The students’ achievements in these examinations are evidence of the effectiveness of YCIS’s global education approach. Congratulations go to all Year 11 students for their brilliant achievements and the school. We wish them all the very best in their study for the IB Diploma Programme.
