International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
Taken when students are 16 years of age, IGCSEs are designed to provide your child with broad and balanced programmes of study in a number of subject areas that develop critical thinking, analytical skills and the ability to communicate ideas effectively. Our IGCSE results are as good as or better than many top private schools in the UK, with BSG students often outperforming those from institutions such as Eton and Harrow.
2021 IGCSE RESULTS
The two main criteria that are used to judge examination performance for 16 year olds in the UK are; achieving 5 grades at 'C' or above, and the number of the highest grades achieved. We are very proud that 98% of all examinations sat by the British School of Guangzhou students received grade 'C' or above.
This is a tremendous achievement, but our top students really shone with 67% of exams taken awarded either grade 'A*' or 'A '- the highest possible grades. This is compared to the UK's average of 29%, showing just how far ahead our students are as they move to university entry.
