Achsah Wildish, a student from the British West Indies Collegiate (BWIC) was presented with a prestigious award from Cambridge International Examinations after placing top in the world in AS-Level mathematics in the June 2015 Cambridge examinations.
Wilkinson said that the award recognised talent, dedication and commitment of both learners and staff. He said: “This is an outstanding achievement for Achsah. “Not only did she score 100 percent in a particularly challenging subject, representing our small school in our small island state she has surpassed the performance of students in countries such as India, China, Korea and Singapore who have tended to dominate the field of mathematics.”
Wilkinson said that Achsah was an immensely talented and well balanced young woman. “We at BWIC, and all of us in the TCI, are extremely proud of her success, and the honour and recognition she brings to these shores,” Wilkinson said.
