Unlike other English certificates for primary students (such as Cambridge or TOEFL Primary) which only test students’ English competence, Edexcel International Primary Examination is a graduation examination for primary students according to UK standard and is internationally recognized. The examination is organized by Edexcel, a part of one of the largest educational corporations in the world - Pearson.

The examination assesses students’ ability in three subjects: Math, Science and English. Primary and Lower Secondary Certificates of Edexcel are accepted worldwide and have permanent validity. This is a basis to assess students’ academic ability according to international standard and allows students to apply for enrolment in the 1st year of secondary level in international schools around the world.

Receiving Edexcel International Primary Award has proven that these students are academically equal to their international counterparts and this has formed the solid foundation for them to further their knowledge quest in the future.

Stemhouse proudly announce the good result of our students and is also proud of our modest role in bridging the gap between Vietnamese and international students.

 

 

AMERICAN MATHEMATICS OLYMPIAD 2017 RESULTS

 

[Stemhouse candidates are among the Top 500 excellent candidates from Asia. Stemhouse team won 77 medals including 5 gold medals, 28 silver medals, and 45 bronze medals. The result once again proves the position of Vietnamese students in international playgrounds and marks a plus in our students’ journey to explore the world.]

 

At the AMERICAN MATHEMATICS OLYMPIAD  (“AMO”) 2017, there were 1014 Vietnamese candidates together with other students between grade 2 and grade 9 from more than 30 countries. Among them, Stemhouse had 210 candidates and achieved noticeable results as follows.

  • Stemhouse team won 77 medals including 5 gold medals, 28 silver medals, and 45 bronze medals.
  • All 77 medal winners were among the Top 500 excellent candidates from Asia.
  • The best candidate from Stemhouse ranks 16 in Asia and ranks 4 nationally.  
  • The lowest result ranks 474 in Asia and 72 nationally.
  • The youngest candidate from Stemhouse is a second grader, ranks 99 in Asia and ranks 3 nationally.
  • Among the 234 medal winners from HCMC, Stemhouse accounted for 1/3.

 

This is a really encouraging result of our students at such a large international competition like AMO because the questions of this year were considered much harder than those of the previous. Question types give much proportion to critical thinking, creativity as well as challenge students’ English ability.

On 25 November 2017, the organizers held a reward ceremony to honor students who won Gold - Silver - Bronze medals at the competition in Ho Chi Minh City. That was such a memorable day!

Congratulations Stemhouse team! This is the well-deserved result for students’ tremendous effort. The result once again proves the position of Vietnamese students in international playgrounds and marks a plus in our students’ journey to explore the world.

Once again, congratulations!

 

*** AMO was founded by George Lenchner, a famous American mathematician, in 1977; in 1979, the competition spread to other states of the US and in 2015, the competition was held in 50 states of the US and more than 30 countries in the world with up to 170000 candidates.
