Andrew BULLA, Class of 2019
IBDP Excellence Scholarship recipient

I think the scholarship committee looks beyond just grades. Most people who applied have fantastic grades as a basis, so I believe it has to do with personality and attitude towards academics, above anything else—maybe the scholarship interview board saw these qualities in me.

Arundhati GORE, G12
IBDP Excellence Scholarship recipient

I think one of the qualities that helped me stand out last year was my persistence and commitment to a variety of things. During IGCSE, I realised the importance of being focused and committed. I was continually working to improve myself and striving to achieve more. I think that drive was visible in my results.

Gabriel TAN, Class of 2019
IBDP Merit Scholarship recipient

It never hurts to be a more well-rounded person by taking part in after school and external activities. I participated in Model United Nations, the track team and robotics club, which allowed me to gain experiences. It’s good to form positive relationships with your teachers, they can also guide you with your personal essay.
