A student in Tanzania has been ranked Top in the World for her exceptional performance in Cambridge International O level Swahili during the June 2008 examination session. Mariam Iddi Kaoneka, from Al Muntazir International Exam Centre, will be congratulated on her achievement at a forthcoming awards ceremony organised by University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).

CIE’s first ever Brilliance in Tanzania awards ceremony will take place at the Kilimanjaro Hotel Kempinski in Dar Es Salaam on 26 September. The prestigious ceremony celebrates the success of talented Tanzanian students in the Cambridge IGCSE, International A / AS Level and O Level June 2008 examinations.

British High Commissioner, Mr Philip John Parham, will present 24 awards to students who have been ranked Top in Tanzania for their outstanding exam performance in a single subject. Five awards will be presented to International A Level students, 5 awards to International AS students, and 14 awards to Cambridge IGCSE students. The students will also be congratulated at the ceremony by CIE Representatives Anne Crowson and Patricia Borman.

Guy Lane, CIE Director, says: ‘It is very gratifying that the number of schools offering CIE qualifications in Tanzania has increased to such an extent that we are able to hold an award ceremony here. The ceremony recognises the enormous success and talent in Tanzania, and CIE would like to offer congratulations to all prize-winning students, their families, their teachers and their schools.’
