Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Fahd. Below Fahd shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi? I found IGCSEs very difficult at the beginning but when I moved to BISAD in the middle of Year 10, I started to find it allot easier to cope with the stress and difficult challenges with the help of my excellent new teachers. They helped me improve my grades and see my true potential by making me work harder and being very supportive. BISAD also gave us many resources to help us succeed in IGCSEs and the school has many facilities which allowed me to continue my sport interests during school. Are you happy with your results? I am very delighted with my results and was extremely shocked when I received them as I never expected myself to do so well. I knew it was due to the substantial effort and devotion of my teachers towards my education. For instance, in Geography I achieved an A* which I had never expected since it wasn’t one my strongest subjects however with the help of Mr. Fairbank who gave us many resources and helped me get the A*. What are you plans for the future? I have always wanted to do something to help people in their everyday lives and tackle problems that are out of their control. This is why I have become very interested in Bioengineering as it combines both my interests of Biology and Computer Science whilst allowing me to create new innovative biotech that can further improve our lives and in some cases save them. Fahd's IGCSE results: 1xA*, 2x8, 1xA & 5x7. #igcse #igcseresults #proud #bisad #bis_ad #naebeambitious #beambitious #inabudhabi #nordangliaeducation

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Ali. Below Ali shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi? I had a wonderful experience doing my IGCSEs in this school, thanks to the wide array of support I received from both my teachers and peers. Although there were lengthy periods of strenuous work and sacrifices leading up the exams, I managed to pull through and made all that time worth it. In terms of advice I would give to the Year 11’s and 10’s, there are a few key points. You should try and complete your coursework by the beginning of Year 11, so you have enough time to focus solely on your exams. This is also a huge factor in your grade, as a good coursework mark gives you an edge in determining the final grade. Also, for the final exam, do as many past papers as possible, and highlight and write down corrections for the mistakes you made. In my opinion, past papers are the best way to prepare for the finals. Are you happy with your results? Despite the difficulties that sprung in both subjects that weren’t my best and that I was strong in, through perseverance and consistency, I achieved grades that I am extremely proud of. I am elated at my results in the Sciences and am incredibly grateful and proud of my achievement in English and Economics, as those were my weaker subjects, but I improved tremendously. What are your plans for the future? I’m aspiring to study Medicine; although the field is very competitive, I trust that my results prove my ability to succeed in it. My growing interest in Biology and my already high interest in Chemistry are my driving force in achieving this dream. #bisad #bis_ad #nordangliaeducation #igcse #igcseresults #proud #highachiever

Reflections of Abu Dhabi Art by Tomaz Favrin (Y13) We had a fantastic day at the Abu Dhabi Art Fair, exploring the latest artworks by artists from all over the world. The opportunity to meet Ai-Da, the world’s first ultra-realistic humanoid AI robot artist, was incredible. We watched as she slowly drew a representational drawing of the mythological God Hydra. We also got to interact with its AI function as it answered our questions. We asked about the robots favourite artists, colours and even artworks, eventually being brave enough to ask “will you take over the world?”, which was promptly answered with an insightful warning about the dangers of AI if placed in the wrong hands. Exhibition-wise, the artworks served as an exceptional reflection of the deeper meaning behind unity, as they encapsulated the diverse and multicultural aspect of the UAE. The tour gave us a lot to think about, spanning from the expression of different perspectives to the limitless possibilities of the visual arts. #art #exhibition #bisad #bis_ad #schooltrip #robot #drawing

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Rebecca. Below Rebecca shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi? IGCSEs were a challenging two years but the hard work put in was definitely rewarding in the end. I am happy that while studying I was able to improve my exam technique and time management skills, something I really struggled with at the start of Year 10. I'm also glad that I found effective revision methods that allowed me to efficiently learn the content, and although it was difficult, I was able to balance my studies and continue swim training throughout the exams. I think that these skills that I developed over the IGCSE years will help me in the future. Are you happy with your results? I am extremely happy with all my results, especially in the sciences as I would like to continue studying them in the future. I was surprised by my economics result, as I struggled with it throughout both years, however, with much perseverance I'm tremendously happy that I managed to achieve a grade 9. What are your plans for the future? After IB, I would like to study a field related to biology and chemistry. I have always enjoyed these subjects and so I think I would find a subject such as Biomedical science or Microbiology very interesting to study in university. Rebecca's IGCSE results: 6x9, 2xA* and 1x8. #igcse #bisad #bis_ad #school #results #proud #inabudhabi #achievement

Although it proved stressful at times, my iGCSE experience was overall incredibly rewarding. These past two years have taught me invaluable life skills like time management, how I personally learn, and many more. The community feel of BIS Abu Dhabi has played a crucial role throughout my studies, allowing me to build a vast support group of friends, peers, and teachers, who all significantly helped me through any stress or anxiety I felt over the two years. Are you happy with your results? I am very happy with my results, especially in English as it's always been one of my weaker subjects, so I'm glad all the hard work I put in has truly paid off. What are your plans for the future? Once I graduate from school, I would like to study computer science or a business related degree in university because I'm really interested in these subjects and they would be useful skills for a future career in the global job market.

Celebrating our IGCSE 2019 highest achiever, Muhammad. Below Muhammad shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSE’s in BIS Abu Dhabi? Throughout the two year course, I had definitely experienced rough periods. Such as, times where the workload were overwhelming and meeting certain deadlines, especially as this was a new experience of education for me as it is our first proper certification of education that are somewhat important for our future. Regardless of the tough times, it was worth it. Are you happy with your results? I am really happy with the results I had achieved especially in Maths, Physics and English because I was predicted lower than what I had achieved, but to get a 9, I was really happy about that. My English grades could have been better but that was purely based on my coursework which is why it is important to spend time on your coursework as they can boost your grades up no matter how well you do in the actual exam papers. What are your plans for the future? In the future, I aspire to become a Pilot after I have earned my degree in aeronautical/aerospace engineering. Although it may be challenging and a long process, I am dedicated enough to pursue this career as I have always had a fascination for flying and airplanes in general.

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Bagad. Below Bagad shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi? The IGCSE’s was a challenging and exciting experience. Throughout the two years, every lesson felt like a new adventure and teachers made the lessons enjoyable and memorable which helped me retain my focus and motivation during the course. Teachers also encouraged us to be very inquisitive which helped me get more creative and experimental. I was also taught many skills which have come to be greatly useful in IB, such as time management and effective revision methods. I am extremely thankful to my teachers and friends in BIS Abu Dhabi who made the challenging IGCSE’s into an unforgettable memory. Are you happy with your results? I am very happy with my results as I performed better than I expected in many subjects. A huge part of this achievement wouldn’t have been possible if it weren't for the support I received from my teachers. I am exceptionally happy with my Geography and Physics result as I wasn't performing very well in the beginning of these subjects but with the help of my friends and immense support from the teachers, I was able to achieve an A* and an 8 in my exams. What are you plans for the future? I aspire to complete the IB diploma here at BIS Abu Dhabi with great results. My biggest interest lies in Aerospace Engineering which I would love to pursue in University and as a career option in the future.

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Ashwaty. Below she shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi? In one word: “incredible”; it all comes down to the immense amount of patience, support and encouragement from my parents, teachers and peers alike, of which, made my two years doing IGCSEs at BIS Abu Dhabi all the better! Are you happy with your results? I’m happy with my results overall, but especially with my results in Maths, English Language and English Literature; as these are subjects, I am truly passionate about, and in turn, had dedicated a large portion of my focus to these aforementioned subjects. All in all, my hard work paid off and I couldn’t be happier! What are you plans for the future? Though nothing is set in stone, I’m certain that with the continuous support of the people around me, I’ll choose something that’s right for me. With me being a lover of Maths and Economics, I hope to study Political Science. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always dreamed of studying and working in a field that I am incredibly passionate about. Right now, Political Science seems to fit that right!

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Paul. Below he shares his thoughts about completing the course and his achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs in BIS Abu Dhabi? I have been attending BIS Abu Dhabi for over ten years now and I couldn’t be any happier with how my IGCSEs went. Throughout my two IGSCE years, the school and teachers have been a crucial part in my studies and in helping me cope with all the pressure related to the exams. The support and guidance I have received from my teachers and peers has been extraordinary and has helped me be the best version of myself. Are you happy with your results? Yes, I am extremely happy with my results as they portray all the hard work, I have put in during the two years. The hardest part was finding a balance between competing in athletics as well as my studies. Keeping a healthy lifestyle and exercising was very important alongside my studies as it helped me take my mind of all the work and pressure. I am especially content with my Math’s result because I consistently worked really hard, in and out of lessons, to make sure I was able to get a 9, allowing me to do higher level Math’s in IB, which is a requirement for most universities when applying for anything related to engineering. What are you plans for the future? At the moment, I plan on staying at BIS Abu Dhabi to continue my academic studies, pursuing my IB diploma. In the future, I would like to continue my education through an undergraduate degree, studying Computer Engineering, preferably in the UK, as I am very passionate about the subject as it widens my perspective on problems and forces me to think outside the box to find solutions for real world dilemmas. Eventually, I would love to work on artificial intelligence as I think that it will become a huge part of society in the near future.

Celebrating one of our IGCSE 2019 highest achievers, Camilla. Below Camilla shares her thoughts about completing the course and her achievements: How was your experience doing IGCSEs at BIS Abu Dhabi? IGCSEs were undoubtedly a very stressful two years, however, thinking back on it now, it was a very rewarding experience. At times the pressure got very high, and I felt like I couldn’t manage the work, thankfully us students were always supported by all the amazing teachers at BISAD. They always made time to help us manage our time efficiently in addition to helping us with revision through extra booster sessions at breaks and after school. I was also helped by all my friends and classmates, we got together before our exams for group study sessions, it was helpful as It was nice to collectively revise it made the process a lot more fun as well. Are you happy with your results? I am certainly very proud of my grades across all subjects, Physics in particular, as it was quite a challenging subject for me at the start of Year 10, but through hard work and support from my teacher, I was able to achieve a very high grade (very unexpectedly as well). All the hard work and stressful hours of revision all paid off at the end of these two years. What are your plans for the future? Once I finish the IB diploma, I would like to go on to University to study Global Sustainability Science, as I feel that it will be become a very relevant subject in the future which most people would like to invest time in. I am also interested in the research aspect of the subject, as it entails a big portion of practical work. Most of all, I would like to find a job that I am strongly interested in.
