Cambridge International, part of the University of Cambridge and the largest provider of international education for 3 to 19-year-olds, released the results of its June 2022 exam series to Cambridge IGCSE students in India and around the world.

In total, schools in India made almost 19,000 entries for Cambridge IGCSE and over 11,000 entries for Cambridge International AS & A Levels in the June 2022 series.

“More than ever, I congratulate Cambridge students for their hard work towards these results. They’ve shown great resilience and dedication to get to this point, and I am proud of everyone’s achievements. They can now progress to new opportunities and experiences, and I’m confident they have the skills, knowledge and courage to succeed in every choice they make.

The performance of students in India has been remarkable and we are proud of their achievements. I would also like to congratulate schools on the support they have given to students, the success of the series and smooth completion of the exams.”
