Prestigious Top in the World awards achieved by Macleans College students

Posted on February 12, 2024

Two Macleans College students have each received a Top in the World award following the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) examinations, held at the end of 2023.

These highly prestigious awards are presented to the learners who have achieved the highest standard mark in the world in an individual subject. Students from over 40 countries around the world sit CAIE examinations every year.

Year 13 student Bruce Zou (Te Kanawa House) achieved Top in the World in AS Design and Technology. Year 12 student Jay Hwang (Mansfield) achieved Top in the World in AS Mathematics.

Jay’s achievement is especially impressive, as he completed the AS Mathematics course in Year 11 - a year ahead of time. Jay is studying at Macleans College as an international student from Korea.

Bruce and Jay will be recognised later this week at the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards Ceremony.

CAIE qualifications are recognised and valued by leading universities worldwide. Macleans College students have been accepted into a number of prestigious overseas universities, including Oxford, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Duke, University of California, University of Pennsylvania and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
