Story of the High-Flyer Duo!
Last year two students from Visakha Vidyalaya joined the free A/L support classes that were organised by ICBS to support them to face their exams more confidently when their education had to face a sudden, unfortunate and unexpected challenge by the pandemic. Meanwhile, the University of the West of Scotland conducted its annual scholarship examinations program even when the entire university systems were affected , through an exclusive digital platform
The University offered 25 full worth 1.5 Million each, becoming the first and only university to offer such in the country, using a digital platform. These two students participated in these exams and succeeded in receiving full scholarships to study for the most exclusive , most accredited honours degree in Sri Lanka - BA(Hons) International Business & Finance with exemptions from CIMA , ACCA , CIM and many more , offered at ICBS. Soon after A/Ls, they started their undergraduate education without further waiting and wasting their valuable time. In May 2021 they received their A/L results and both girls placed on top island ranks, one became the 8th in the island and the other became the 42nd. ICBS felicitated these wonderful students on the 11th May 2021 , recognizing their achievements at G.C.E A/L 2020 The beauty of this remarkable story is UWS measured, evaluated these students and recognized their capabilities even before they sat for their A/L examination showing how futuristic, quality-driven they are which can understand the true capacity of a student. We congratulate Miss Anjalee Handaragama ( island rank 8th ) and Miss Amanda Perera ( Islan rank 42nd ) for their extraordinary achievements and wish them good luck with their future endeavors.
