Palestinian student Akram Mohamed Othman got a score of 3100/3100 as part of 9th grade exams in Syria.
The results were announced by the Syrian Education Ministry on July 14.
Akram’s parents are natives of the occupied Palestinian city of Haifa. He was born in Aleppo, north of Syria.
UNRWA in Syria said 89.9% of the 4,535 students registered with the Agency in Syria passed their exams.
Hundreds of displaced Palestinian refugees in/from Syria have achieved success stories, despite the traumatic upshots wrought by the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction across the embattled Syrian territories.
This includes scores of refugee students who have obtained the highest scores at their academic institutions; hundreds of refugee sportsmen/sportswomen who snatched the first places in regional and international competitions; dozens of artists who received renowned literary awards for their products and performances; and several housewives who turned trauma into a space of creativity.
