BISW students top UK average in IGCSE results

  • BeAmbitiousNAE

 

Congratulations to our students on their outstanding IGCSE results this year!

Our students' results have exceeded the UK average for IGCSEs (International GCSE) with 88% students achieving 5A*- C grades compared to the UK average of 66%.

Our students continue to significantly outperform UK national averages

  • 43% IGCSE grades achieved by BISW students were at the highest levels of A* or A. This is more than 23% above the 2017 UK average of 20%.
  • The percentage of our students achieving 5A* - C grades, including English and Maths at IGCSE has risen to 88%, significantly outperforming last year’s school averages of 74%.

“We are delighted to see that the hard work of our students, ably supported by our academic staff and their parents has paid off.  We want all of our students to ‘be ambitious’ and these outstanding results clearly demonstrate this trait,” Ian Piper, Principal of BISW said.

 

These exceptional results are the culmination of the hard work and dedication of our students, our ambitious approach and the support of our excellent teachers. On behalf of our school community, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our teachers for always inspiring and challenging our students to achieve more than what they may have thought possible.

 

IGCSEs are some of the most academically challenging courses currently on offer to 14-16 year old students worldwide. They are respected by universities and employers and offer students the opportunity to study a broad range of subjects in preparation for further study aged 16-18 through the International Baccalaureate.

 

The full two-year program features a combination of coursework and exam work. Students will generally take ten subjects 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 a benchmark of academic performance when considering applications.
