Bridge pupils excel in National Common Entrance Examination for the 5th year in a row


Bridge International Academies, a leading global education organization, is pleased to announce that its pupils have performed exceptionally for the fifth year in a row at the National Common Entrance Examination.

Alexander Tarhe-Veyan is this year’s highest performing pupil at Bridge with a total score of 188. Earlier in the year, Alexander came first place in The Ultimate Mathematics Ambassador (TUMA) competition out of over 1,800 pupils. Alexander also participated in the Deeper Life High School Entrance Examination where he topped the list with an amazing 92% score.

The best-performing pupil’s result is closely followed by Divine Chinonso Mcanthony who is also the best-performing female Bridge pupil and she had a total score of 186. This year, 121 Bridge pupils registered for the exam, 61 males and 60 females. The result of the exam further proves the learning equity at Bridge as girls made the same leap in learning as boys.
