Mohammed Al-Qawasmeh, a student at Brighton College Al Ain, has been awarded the highest GCSE grade in the world for Arabic. The GCSE results were published in September and the worldwide results released at the end of 2017.

Commenting on Mohammed’s success Dr Ken Greig, Head Master of Brighton College Al Ain said, “At Brighton College we are focused on providing inspirational teaching, while nurturing our students to have a love for learning. We believe in and understand the importance of integrating and using Arabic as a first or additional language throughout the college’s culture and daily life and continually seek opportunities for pupils to experience and demonstrate ease with Arabic outside the classroom — in assemblies, exhibitions and other educational settings in which they may find themselves. Mohammed’s achievement is testament to his hard work and the support of the teachers at Brighton College. We are immensely proud of him and look-forward to continuing to support his educational journey throughout his A-Levels”

“I’m extremely proud of my achievement. My biggest inspiration to excel in my studies, is my mother who has a PhD in education.” Speaking on the secret of his success, he added: “To always be completely systematic in my exams. I always allow myself much longer than others to check and double check every single detail of each answer,” added Mohammed.
