More than 100 students in the UAE have been named top achievers in the 2019 Cambridge International exams.
Twenty-seven of them bagged the highest marks in the world in an A level or IGCSE subject, while 75 others came on top in the UAE.
Every year, nearly a million learners from 10,000 schools in 160 countries prepare for the Cambridge exams.
The winners from the UAE will be awarded at a ceremony in Dubai on December 5.
