International Baccalaureate Success
The Sixth Form College is celebrating another year of outstanding exam success for the group of International Baccalaureate students.
We are really proud of the students' successes. As a group, the students who passed the diploma have achieved a very impressive achievement level of an average of 32 points. The IB is a global qualification, taken by students all over the world and, in this context, the achievements of our students compares extremely well to the international average of 29 points. (Diploma ‘pass’ criteria includes achievement of a minimum of 24 points).
We are delighted to see a number of students achieve excellent grades. For example, Lewis Jarrad achieved a stunning 40 points, which is equivalent to a fantastic 5 A grades at A Level!!
We’ve also been delighted to see students use their IB success to access such a wide range of careers and university courses, both in the UK and abroad. We have one student using his IB success to progress to university in Amsterdam and another taking up a place on a prestigious ‘higher apprenticeship’ in Integrated Supply and Trading.
College Principal Ian MacNaughton congratulated the students and said : "The students should be very proud of their success. It’s been great to see students (and their parents) here this morning celebrating their achievements and it is pleasing to see so many of them moving on to such a wide range of opportunities, including places upon some of the very best university courses – proving once again, the value of the International Baccalaureate in developing students’ outlook and skills.
