                                           Welcome
                                           Another year has passed, and once again University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) celebrates the
                                           outstanding achievements of students in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the June 2009 Cambridge examination
                                           session. We are pleased to have this opportunity to congratulate students on their exceptional results, and to
                                           show our appreciation of the teachers who make their achievements possible.
                                           Since CIE developed the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) over 20 years ago, it
                                           has become the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. Entries in the June 2009
                                           examination session grew by 20 per cent on the previous year, as more and more schools around the world

                                           The growth that we have witnessed globally mirrors the growth that we have experienced in Saudi Arabia,
                                           where we have registered a record number of new Cambridge schools over the last year, not only in Riyadh,
                                           Jeddah and Al Khobar, but also in smaller cities such as Abha and Hofuf. We welcome all new schools and

                                           As the awards listed in this brochure indicate, performance in Saudi Arabia this year has been particularly strong,
                                           with eight students ranked in the global top 10 and students achieving the highest mark in the world in five
                                           different syllabuses. This is a remarkable achievement in which students, their schools and their families can be
                                           justifiably proud.
                                           Being a department of the University of Cambridge, CIE is closely in touch with world experts in assessment
                                           and, as a result, offers a range of qualifications which are internationally recognised. Cambridge IGCSE and
                                           Cambridge International A Level are already very well established in Saudi Arabia, but it is encouraging to see
                                           how many schools have now started to make use of other programmes such as the Cambridge International

                                           Many students with Cambridge qualifications go on to excel at university. We are always interested in receiving
                                           news from those in higher education or employment, so please do stay in touch.
                                           It is a great privilege for CIE to be working in partnership with schools and the British Council in Saudi Arabia.
                                           Many congratulations to all students in Saudi Arabia on their achievements, and best wishes for your future
