Scoring an average of 33.5 points (last year’s average was 32.5) and earning over $3.6 million in scholarships and financial aid, this amount is triple what the graduates were awarded last year.

With the Aga Khan Academy’s clear emphasis on pluralism and ethical leadership, these students are well equipped to tackle local and global challenges that face our communities now and in the future. These graduates have earned places to study courses ranging from medicine and philosophy, to engineering and business. 

Our top-scoring student this year, Asim Himani scored 41(out of 45), placing him in the top 4.6% of all Diploma graduates globally. Asim will be pursuing a major in Mathematics at Simon Fraser University, Canada with a full scholarship.

Our students received offers from prestigious institutions including King’s College London, Purdue University, New York University, University College London, University of British Columbia, University of Southern California, London School of Economics, University of Toronto and York University. During their Diploma Programme at the Academy, students are mentored to be reflective and action-oriented citizens.

The Class of 2015 not only saw offers from outside India, they received offers from various Indian universities too. Monika Bhalwani is pursuing the Liberal Arts programme at Ashoka University, New Delhi with a full scholarship. Other students have received offers from Azim Premji University, Christ University, University of Mumbai and Osmania University, demonstrating the recognition that the International Baccalaureate has been received as a good pre-university programme in India.

AKA, Hyderabad Class of 2015Students take a broad range of subjects at the Academy that provide a rich foundation of knowledge and skills, coupled with their CAS, Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay experiences. Combined, this allows the Diploma Programme at the Aga Khan Academies to remain one of the most rigorous pre-university courses available.
