New World Record Set by A Pakistani Student in IGCSE Examinations

Haroon Tariq, student of Froebel's International School (FIS) in Pakistan, has broken all previous records by obtaining 47 As in his International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), O-Level and A-Level exams, from the University of Cambridge International Examinations. The previous world record in O levels alone was also proudly held by a Pakistani student named Zohaib Asad with a total of 28 As, whereas Haroon managed to achieve 38 As in O levels.

His subjects ranged from social, physical and biological sciences to religion and cultural development. According to Haroon, he studied a total of 50 subjects in the three years and admitted that he had to go through a sheer struggling phase during this time. He does not a straight-to-success story to narrate; as he started learning languages which were totally strange to him like Spanish and French, but finally gave them up since this practice was taking a lot of his time.

Haroon’s outstanding result is a proud event for the whole nation. The head principle of Haroon’s school, Shahmina Kamal said: “I feel honoured to be instrumental in shaping a competent youngster for tomorrow’s Pakistan.”

The exceptionally brilliant student, who also happens to be fond of playing football, plans to study engineering in future. We wish him all the best!

With this new possibility to render the emotions of mice measurable, neurobiologists can now investigate the basic mechanisms of how emotions are generated and processed in the brain.
