Cambridge Connection

Cambridge Connection

For 150 years Cambridge Assessment has worked in partnership with ministries of education, qualifications authorities and examination and assessment boards around the world.

In countries such as Singapore, Cambridge examinations are the state qualification for students in secondary school.

Speaking at a recent Cambridge Assessment seminar, Tan Yap Kwang, Chief Executive of the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board, explains how its relationship with Cambridge, which dates back to 1892, has helped to shape and establish one of the most advanced education systems in the world.

Throughout subsequent reforms to Singapore’s education system, its ‘Cambridge connection’ – built on mutual trust and understanding – continues to provide its students with better employment opportunities, a common examination and certificate as well as access to universities in the UK and around the world.
