Cambridge International Examinations announced the winners of the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, India.
The awards are given to the outstanding academic achievements of secondary school learners in India, for the November 2012/June 2013 Cambridge examination series.
109 learners received awards for exceptional performance in Cambridge examinations, including 20 learners who achieved the highest marks in the world and 76 learners who attained the highest marks in India in a single subject.
The awards also celebrated the achievements of those learners who have been recognised for ‘High Achievement' based on an outstanding performance in subjects which are not yet so widely taken in India and learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects.

These outstanding results will be recognised by employers and universities around the world as proof of academic excellence.
