Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award
Shao Yuan Lin (also known as Victor) is homeschooling with Wolsey Hall Oxford in Hong Kong, China. He just attended the prestigious ceremony to receive his Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award for his amazing 95% grade achievement in AS Level Maths!
“We had a great time at the ceremony. Victor is obviously the youngest award winner as he skipped two years of Maths in school. The other winners for AS or A Level are either at Year 13 or studying at University level already! The IGCSE subject award winners were already in Year 12, whilst Victor is only in Year 11. I hope he will get more awards next year, with his IGCSE subjects and A Level Maths.” Lisa, Victor’s mother.
Wolsey Hall Oxford is a registered school of Cambridge Assessment International Education
Victor intends to continue with Wolsey Hall Oxford and get his full A Level in Maths, and meanwhile studies a range of other subjects. He is particularly good at Mathematics, and at age only 15 he is ahead of the usual age group for AS Level!
With homeschooling you can study at your own pace and according to your own level of understanding, which often means that those with special talents in certain areas can grow organically without hindrance, and thus quickly reach their full potential.
The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are a group of awards issued by Cambridge Assessment International Education (previously CIE). They recognise exceptional learner achievement in Cambridge examinations around the world. The primary purpose of these awards is to celebrate and recognise the success of high-performing Cambridge learners.
The University of Cambridge formed Cambridge Assessment over 150 years ago. Its aim was to raise standards in education by administering exams for people who were not members of the University and inspecting schools. In 1858, 370 candidates sat Cambridge exams. Today this has risen to more than 8 million candidates a year in 160 countries!
Well done Victor and family for this amazing achievement, from all of us at Wolsey Hall Oxford!
