In offering our congratulations it is important to note that International College Spain is an open entry school where the IB programme is the only programme offered in Grades 11 and 12. Some of our students take this very demanding IB programme where it is only offered as an option in other schools. It is also worth remembering that global patterns of results vary from year to year with trends both upwards and downwards reflecting the varying average levels of ability within each year group.
With this in mind currently our 94% Pass Rate from 54 candidates and Average Diploma Score of 34 out of 45 points and a top score of 43 points are indicators of the excellent standard of teaching and learning here at the school and testament to the hard work of both teachers and students. These results are above world averages.
The process of guidance and university counseling for students is now in full swing. The analysis of results will continue into the new academic year and adjustments and innovations within the school programme will be made for the benefit of future generations of students.
The process of enquiries upon results from the IBO has also begun and will continue until mid-September and may result in some improvements to individual grades and the school’s global statistics.
At the time of writing many students have already been successfully placed in their courses and universities of choice and we are working to enable all students to move directly to further study or plan for this to occur in the future. We will be providing a further update later in the year once we have all the data and an analysis complete.
Once again, congratulations to all our Grade 12 Students and Teachers!
