The students from schools across Nepal were felicitated at the awards ceremony organized by the British Council at the Himalayan Hotel, Patan on Friday.
“We are thrilled to see students from across Nepal exhibit their desire for learning and accomplish their goals.

Congratulations to all the students and we wish them all the luck for their future endeavors,” a statement issued by the British Council quoted Ruchira Ghosh, regional director of Cambridge International for South Asia, as saying.

“There is room in a healthy education sector for a variety of providers and for study option in both local and foreign curriculum. The awards announced today are testimony to the quality of the Cambridge International A Level Program and its value to Nepal education sector,” said O'Neill. “As British Council moves toward its 60th year in Nepal, opening access to UK qualifications remains a genuine highlight of our work.”
