Three students of Oxbridge Tutorial College (OTC), have topped the 2016 May/June Cambridge International Examinations.
The students-Mr. Bawo Theodore Ajuyah (AS Level), Mr Chidozie Onyeze (AS Level) and Miss Amarachi Tony-Ubah (A Level), were honoured in Chemistry, Mathematics and Sociology respectively.
The trio was honoured alongside their counterparts from other schools at the maiden British Council Recognition and Outstanding Cambridge Learners Award.
Oxbridge Tutorial College also emerged the only sixth form institution that won the British Council recognition for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at the maiden event which attracted dignitaries including top executives from the British Council, educationists and the media.
The awardees expressed appreciation to OTC for the sound academic footing they had and which prepared them for the next phase of their academic journey. They also thanked their parents and teachers
“’For me, this award is evident of the excellent tutelage I received at Oxbridge and is also a recognition of all the hard work I invested in my A-level programme. This motivates me to work harder in my current field of study to attain greater heights” said one of the awardees, Amarachi Tony-Ubah.
“’A student is nothing without a teacher,” added Onyeze.
“I can’t forget to thank all the people who, over the last two years, sat me down in class and drilled topic after topic into my head. I know I would not be where I am now if not for the diligent and knowledgeable teachers of this school. I am very grateful,” Onyeze added.
For Ajuyah, he owed his parents for the success.
He said:”Words cannot describe how appreciative I am to God for giving me, such wonderful parents. They have motivated and guided me all through my secondary and pre-tertiary education. Besides just attending classes, my parents instilled in me the drive to have a work ethic and positive attitude to my teachers and classmates. ”
Responding, the management of OTC thanked the awardees, individuals and corporate bodies that have aligned with the dream of the college over the years.
“We enjoin other well-wishers to congratulate our students in recognition of their outstanding achievements. Our appreciation also goes to all our partners whose support has helped in the delivery of world-class education using international best practices in preparing future leaders of our nation.
“Over the years, Oxbridge Tutorial College has consistently produced some of the best results in the country and our students have progressed on to both Ivy League and Russell Group universities in different parts of the world. We also have a proud history of a robust network of alumni who are leaders in their respective callings, both nationally and internationally.
