He was awarded an Outstanding Learner Award by University of Cambridge International Examinations for gaining the highest mark in Kenya in the June 2010 IGCSE over 7 subjects. He is continuing his A levels in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

Cambridge qualifications develop independent learners, and prepare students for success in their further studies and beyond. Many Pattni members said his high grades are due to the quality of teaching he had received, the support of his family and friends, as well as his own hard work and commitment to studies.

The feeling you get when you realise that all the hard work has paid off is something one can know only if you have experienced it. The whole family and friend circle are over the moon on Darshan�s achievement.

 

Congratulations and best wishes to Darshan as he continues to excel!
