Cikal Secondary Won 154 Medals At World Scholar's Cup 2017 Jakarta Round!

Sekolah Cikal Secondary won a total of 154 medals at the Jakarta Round of the World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) 2017 on 5-6 May 2017.

Hosted annually in more than 50 countries with its grand finale in Yale University, WSC is an academic decathlon for students (all known as ‘scholars’) across four different categories: Team Debate, Collaborative Writing, an individual exam known as the Scholar’s Challenge, and a team quiz bee known as the Scholar’s Bowl. Points are accumulated in each event in order to race to have enough points to qualify for the global rounds later this year.

All students were categorized into the Senior (15 years old and above) or Junior (below 15 years old) divisions. Students then had to compete against others in all categories based on their age groups.

Cikal Secondary sent 33 students from Sekolah Cikal Setu and Sekolah Cikal Serpong, divided into 9 teams competing in Junior Division and 2 teams in Senior.

With all students being proud winners of at least one medal and most even more, some students scored even over 10 medals, the tournament was a great succes. Nayla Aisha and Muhammad Radi Akbar won School Top Scholar for Junior and Senior division, respectively.

All 33 students from Sekolah Cikal are qualified for Global Round in Hanoi or Athens, to compete with other champions for a place in the Champions Tournament in Yale University, USA.

The students worked very hard and admirably committed their weekend to join their peers for this scholarly endeavour. More than just winning though, the students enjoyed their time at the competition, and are already looking forward to next round of World Scholar’s Cup!

With a 154 medals it is impossible to give a special mention to each single one of them, therefore only the individual gold medals are hereafter mentioned. But all other students deserve great credits for their outstanding performance.
