MOS UK & Ireland Champion 2018
The winners of the 2018 MOS Four Nations UK & Ireland Championship Final were announced on 22nd June 2018 in London.

Adam Drummond, who is studying in St. Ninian’s High School, Isle of Man, scored the highest in his category in the MOS4N Championship Final. Adam won first place in the Microsoft Word 2016 category. He will head to Orlando, Florida, USA for the MOS World Championship from July 29 – August 1st, 2018.

Adam beat thousands of students across UK & Ireland in the MOS Four Nations Championship Final, which took place on 22nd June 2018 in Design Museum London, alongside CertMatters.Live.

Adam qualified for the MOS4N Championship Final in the first ever MOS Test Fest to be held on the Isle of Man. The Manx Education Foundation (MEF) are working with all 5 secondary schools on the island as a Foundation to produce students qualified as MOS certified professionals. Adam's achievement is a reflection of a culmination of a fantastic effort from MEF and the teaching staff at St. Ninian's High School.

We’re delighted with Adam’s performance, he is the first Isle of Man student to enter the MOS Four Nations UK & Ireland Championship and he has certainly set the MOS digital skills standard very high on the island” said Andrew Flood (CEO, Prodigy Learning) “We are looking forward to Adam representing UK & Ireland at the MOS World Championship, we know he will perform very well”.

Certiport anticipates more than 150 finalists from more than 60 countries will compete at the MOS World Championship where students will again participate in a unique competition exam in their track. Six winners will receive cash prizes, medals and the title of Microsoft Office Specialist Word, Excel or PowerPoint World Champion.
