Al Waha International School student tops IGCSE exams

Sarah Shaikh, a student of Al Waha International School, has brought honor to the school and Saudi Arabia by topping in the 2013 IGCSE exams in Arabic as a Foreign Language. She stood first in Saudi Arabia and third internationally.
Zia Nadwi, the school’s chairman, said that he was extremely proud of the fact that the students of the school at IGCSE and A-Level are outstanding academically having won awards at the regional, national and international levels in various categories.
A total of four students of Al Waha have won the highest awards in the IGCSE exams.
Sarah Shaikh also obtained the best results across nine IGCSEs securing first place in Saudi Arabia; Ammar Imtiyaz was second with seven best scores and first place in Saudi Arabia; Zahabia Kothari was highest in Saudi Arabia in Global Perspectives IGCSE; Salma Zacky was highest in Jeddah in English Language, AS Level.
Nadwi said this year 51 secondary school students received awards for exceptional performance in the CIE examinations, including four who achieved the highest marks in the world and 23 students who attained the highest marks in Saudi Arabia in specific subjects.
The awards also celebrate the achievements of those students who have been recognized for ‘High Achievement’ based on outstanding performance in subjects which are not so popular in Jeddah yet, and of those learners who have achieved the total highest cumulative marks across a number of subjects.
“Our heartiest congratulations to the students, their proud parents and educators at Al Waha,” he added.
The winners of these awards have out-performed thousands of candidates worldwide who sat examinations in Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge International AS Level and Cambridge International A Level in the 2013May/June session.

Saudi Arabia FM: Khashoggi murder investigations will continue until all questions are answered

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor is still seeking answers to a number of questions in the investigation into Jamal Khashoggi's death, Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said on Thursday.

The Kingdom is committed to holding those involved in the murder accountable through the judiciary, and investigations into journalist’s killing will continue until all questions are answered, Al-Jubeir said.

Al-Jubeir added that the defendants and the victim in the Khashoggi case are Saudis and that the incident took place on Saudi land. He continued by saying that there has been an attempt to politicize Khashoggi’s case, and that this is regrettable.

Al-Jubeir insisted that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had nothing to do with Khashoggi’s death.

“The Qatari media have launched an organized campaign against Saudi Arabia and are exploiting Khashoggi’s case,” Al-Jubeir added.

He said there is a difference between imposing penalties on those accused and holding Saudi Arabia responsible for Khashoggi’s death.
