Two more Academy’s students have been honoured by the University of Cambridge for achieving the highest marks in the world for one of their subjects in their last A Level examinations. The school has received “Top in the World Awards” with a congratulatory message from Janet Morris, Director, International Network, Cambridge International Examinations.

The recipients of the “Top in the World Award” are Vishwas B Rajashekar for A Level Computer Science and Gautham Gopinath for AS Mathematics. This is the second time Gautham has become world’s number 1 in the world. He received two “Top in the World Awards” last year for IGCSE Additional Maths and Physics. Congratulations to Vishwas and Gautham for achieving this incredible academic success. I would also take this opportunity to salute the teachers who taught Vishwas Computer Science (Mrs. Sabitha Martin) and Gautham Mathematics (Mrs. Annie Karingada). 13 “Top in the World Awards” have been received by Legae students since 2009 when University of Cambridge introduced this award.

About Legae Academy Botswana

Legae’s tradition of success in external examinations has  been further recognised by the MOE, which commended the  school “for its high performance in both IGCSE and HIGCSE  examinations”. The ministry of Education further noted that:  “This good performance is attributed to a number of factors  such as highly qualified staff, small class size, reasonable  teaching loads, good and adequate physical facilities  and resources, and a conducive teaching and learning  environment. The highly qualified teachers of the school are  optimally utilised.” (1998 Inspection Report)  “Legae Academy is focused on students achieving academic  excellence and has a good organisation structure in place to  enable the school to deliver its objective. Inspection findings  revealed that the school has many strengths, particularly in  producing good grades at final exams.”
