Embarking on a journey marked by excellence and fuelled by the commitment to academic brilliance, Allen Overseas has announced yet another milestone in its quest to keep pushing the boundaries for academic excellence in the Middle East.

In a recent interview, three outstanding Allenites who are also Hamdan Awardees shared their transformative experiences with Allen Overseas, underscoring the institution's pivotal role in their academic journey.

Kashinadh Pranesh, a 10th grade student at GEMS Millennium School, Sharjah and a Hamdan Awardee, says, “My goal is to study Computer Science engineering at IIT Mumbai and I am confident of reaching my goal with Allen Overseas’s expert faculty and tailored curriculum.”

Ann Mary Joseph, also in the 10th grade at The Indian High School, Dubai, highlighted that “Allen has not only helped me excel at various competitive exams such as Olympiads, but also helped me build a study habit, which allows more time to pursue my other interests.” Ann was also part of a group of selected students who met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent visit to Abu Dhabi.

Another Hamdaan awardee, Abarnaa Sai Veeraraghavan, a 9th grade student at Delhi Private School, Sharjah, says, “The strong conceptual base given by Allen’s programme has helped me crack SOF, Silverzone and other Olympiads and also given me a foundation for the rigorous competition expected in Engineering and Medical examinations in a few years.”

In response to the growing request and to better cater to the needs of aspiring students, Allen Overseas has recently announced the launch of 2 new centres - in Al Nahda (Bin Shabib Mall) and in Mussafah (Shabia 12) and an extension at the Jumeirah Lake Towers centre to double the capacity.
