The Royal Geographical Society (RGS) with the Institute of British Geographers (IBG), have presented Tanglin Trust School’s graduate Rattan Bhatti, from the Class of 2022 with the prestigious Excellence Award for achieving the highest marks in the world in 2022 for Higher Level Geography.
"I am delighted to receive the RGS Excellence Award for IB Geography. I have always had an affinity for the subject, particularly since the beginning of senior school at Tanglin. My teachers, Mr Thomas and Mrs Ruben, have played a huge part in this achievement. I can’t thank them enough for the constant effort that they put into our lesson material and for their support throughout the process." Said Rattan.
This is the second time in three years that a Geography student at Tanglin has been recognised by the RGS.
The Society’s Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the hard work and success of students who achieve the highest marks in the GCSE, (I)GCSE, A Level, Pre-U and International Baccalaureate geography examinations each year.
Professor Joe Smith, Director of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), said: “Today’s young people have a keen interest in many key geographical issues, including climate change, and studying geography helps them to better understand the world’s people, places and environments, and how they are changing.”
“The Society is delighted to recognise the outstanding success of these dedicated students. Our Excellence Awards reflect their hard work, the support of their geography teachers and parents, and the students’ curiosity about their world, which we hope they will carry with them into the future.” He concluded.
