Nicholas Suresh – OxfordAQA Go Further Award

18 February 2020

Nicholas Suresh has won the first ever OxfordAQA Go Further Award for achieving the Top Score in Malaysia for AS Physics in his June 2019 examinations. The award was presented to him in assembly on 22nd January by Caine Browne Chan from the OxfordAQA exam board.

The awards recognise students with the highest marks in OxfordAQA International GCSEs, AS and A-levels. They also recognise students with the best coursework projects and students who surpassed expectations by demonstrating resiliance and effort. POWIIS has been teaching OxfordAQA qualifications since 2018. OxfordAQA – the abbreviated name for Oxford International AQA Examinations – is a partnership between Oxford University Press, a department of the University of Oxford, and AQA, the UK’s largest provider of GCSEs and A-levels. The qualifications are specially designed to suit the needs of students studying in international schools, whilst being aligned to the standard of the reformed GCSEs and A-levels that students now take in England.

Nicholas’ teachers also received special recognition from OxfordAQA in a letter from the exam board’s Managing Director Sadie Visick, who said:

“We’re very proud to celebrate the achievements of our Go Further Award winning students and recognise the hard work and dedication they put into their studies.

“We feel it’s also important to recognise the contribution of their teachers and school staff, whose passion and commitment enabled these top-performing students to achieve their potential.”

Earlier this academic year Nicholas was the recipient of the Pearson Edexcel Outstanding Learner award for Top in Malaysia for IGCSE Biology – congratulations on another fantastic achievement.
