Mohammed Qasim of Al Ammal English High School, Sharjah, obtained overall first position in the UAE in the Secondary School Certificate (SCC), Part-II, examinations conducted by the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Islamabad (FBISE).
According to the results received yesterday from various Pakistani schools in the UAE that follow the FBISE courses, Qasim, who obtained 761 marks out of a total of 850, stood tallest.
Girls, however, outshone boys as they earned the top positions in their respective schools.
This year, the results which were due to be announced in May, were delayed, causing problems for students who either had to prepare for supplementary examinations or were awaiting college admissions.
The SCC - Grade 10, result is considered most important for students following the FBISE curriculum because it determines their course for higher studies.
