We would like to congratulate our students on their brilliant IGCSE results this year.
Internationally-respected, the International General Certificates of Secondary Education (IGCSE) are the most academically challenging courses currently on offer to 14-16 year old students worldwide.
A continuation of the English National Curriculum, the full two-year program features a combination of coursework and exam work. Students will generally take ten courses and upon passing are awarded qualifications in a full range of core subjects including languages, sciences, humanities, social sciences, arts and design and mathematics. Top universities around the world look to these qualifications as an extra benchmark of performance when considering applications.
At IGCSE, St. Andrews students continue to significantly outperform UK national averages:
36% of all grades achieved by St. Andrews students were A* or A, almost doubling the UK average.
82% of our students achieved 5A*-C grades, significantly outperforming the UK average of 66.9%.
Over 60% of grades in physics, economics, French and Japanese were A* or A.
We are delighted that one of our students received the highest mark in Thailand for IGCSE Mathematics. This is the 3rd time in 4 years that a St. Andrews student has achieved this incredible ranking.
We would also like to congratulate our teachers on another exceptional year: their dedication to our students and school is evident from these high-reaching results. On behalf of the parents and school, we would like to extend our thanks for always challenging our students to be ambitious.
