The Vice-Prime Minister, Minister of Education, Tertiary Education, Science and Technology, Mrs Leela Devi Dookun-Luchoomun; the Head of Education Services of the Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean, Cambridge Assessment International Education, Mr Waleed Bagadi; and other personalities were present on this occasion.

In her address, Mrs Dookun-Luchoomun highlighted that the 121 students, receiving either the Cambridge Top in Mauritius or the High Achievement awards, along with the 15 students receiving Cambridge Top in the World awards, from 30 schools, were clear evidence that Mauritian candidates could successfully compete with other candidates worldwide. According to her, this was also a sign of sound competition that existed in the education system which encouraged learners to give the best of themselves.

The Vice-Prime Minister expressed satisfaction as excellence had been reached in a wide range of subjects such as accounting, chemistry, physics, biology, computer science, economics, business studies and mathematics. She also dwelt on the necessity to keep benchmarking the education system to the international level so as to ensure that students do their best to excel in their fields.

In addition, the Vice-Prime Minister recalled the difficult circumstances in which examinations were held due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that Mauritian students had nonetheless been able to shine. She recalled that her Ministry had been and would remain dedicated to ensure that necessary means were put at the disposal of young people to give them all the required support.
