“Whilst exam results may not be the only measurement of success, they do give a very profound insight into the standard of learning that goes on in a school, and these exam results are outstanding. They can be compared or benchmarked on a national, regional or global level and still remain outstanding. The BIS Community now finds itself in a very privileged position: we are now able to measure our academic success on a global scale with reference to some of the best institutions of learning and be enormously proud of how our students perform.” Mr. Tim Deyes, Principal of British International School, Ho Chi Minh City.
Year-on-year, BIS HCMC students' results have exceeded UK national and independent schools for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), which gives insight into the exceptional level of education and learning that takes place at BIS HCMC.
- 67% of all IGCSE grades achieved by BIS HCMC students were at the highest levels of A* or A. This is a three times the UK national average of 21.2% and is 7 % higher than UK independent schools.
- 35% of grades were A*’s
- 98% of BIS HCMC students achieved A* - C grades which are significantly higher than the UK national average of 66.9% and is 8% higher than UK independent schools. 100% of our grades in Maths and English were A*- C.
A continuation of the English National Curriculum, and prior to commencing the IBDP, our students engage in a broad and varied selection of IGCSE courses. The full two-year IGCSE programme 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.
The Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE courses are internationally respected as the most academically challenging courses currently on offer to 14-16 year old students worldwide. As our students outstanding results indicate, this represents an excellent and reputable pathway to success within the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme.
Congratulations to our students on another exceptional year of results.
