The British School Warsaw’s students have once again achieved far above world average results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in 2017. The British School Warsaw’s average score is over 3 points higher than the IB global average demonstrating an excellent performance by our students.
§ Our students' average score in the IB Diploma was almost 33.5, much ahead of the 2017 global average of 30 points.
§ One out of every five of our students achieved 40 or more points. This is the level of attainment required to gain admission to the world's elite universities, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford. Only one out of fourteen IB students achieves 40 or more points annually.
§ We are delighted to announce that Viola F from our school received full marks - the maximum score of 45 points. This is an incredible achievement given that only 218 students worldwide (0.1% of the 160 000 IB pupils) received full marks this year in the IBDP. Viola will be pursuing Philosophy, Politics and Economics studies at University of Oxford.
Excellent results are a true testimony of an excellent effort by the students and a fantastic work and guidance provided by the IB teachers. Congratulations to all the students who are now starting their university life at places such as University of Oxford, Imperial College London, UCL ( University College London), University of Amsterdam and many other top universities in UK, USA, Netherlands, Poland and other countries.
These IGCSE / GCSE results are excellent and demonstrate our pupils’ hard work and resilience:
· 41% of papers received A or A* (approximately double UK National average of 22%)
· nearly 40% of students received 5 or more A*
· over 20 % or students received 8 or more A* and A grades – this is the level that an average successful Oxbridge candidate would have
· nearly 90% of our students received 5 A*-C (UK national average of approximately 67%)
It is clear that they have responded to the dedication and commitment of their teachers and we are delighted they can now embark on the IB Diploma Programme with such strong qualifications.
