We are delighted to announce that the St George’s British International School Class of 2020 have continued to perform significantly above the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) global average, as confirmed by the latest examination results released on 5 July.
This year’s graduating cohort of 73 DP students achieved an average points score of 35, compared with the provisional global average of 30 points. St George’s pupils excelled with 26% of candidates achieving an average score of 38 points or more out of a maximum of 45, and 13% of pupils achieving an average of 40 points or more. Three pupils achieved a score of 43 points, putting themselves in the top performing 1.5% of IB candidates across the world. The pupils’ performance continues to surpass global benchmarks, with the 2020 St George’s pass rate of 98% set against the global pass rate in 2019 of 78%.
Congratulating students on their achievement, Paul Ryan, Head of Senior School said: “We are incredibly proud of this year’s graduates. They have demonstrated enormous resilience, commitment and perseverance during the most challenging of times. They will continue their studies in some of the world’s most prestigious universities equipped with the knowledge and skills to thrive. “These achievements, in the rigorous and broad IB Diploma programme, are a result of their hard work, the wonderful support of their families and, of course, the guidance offered by teaching staff. Each and every student should be exceptionally proud of their accomplishments.”
Among our most notable performers were Adrian Hall (43 points), Anna Johnson (42 points), Martina Torcè (43 points), Nefelie Hemrich (43 points) and Romeo Dean (42 points). Martina said: “I joined St George’s in Year 11, with the particular aim of going on to complete the IB Diploma. Although the programme was incredibly hard work at times, it has also been extremely enjoyable and provided many amazing memories. I look forward to studying Molecular Bioengineering at Imperial College London from September.”
Nefelie added: “One of the most challenging and yet rewarding aspects of the IB course was balancing the heavy workload across the six subjects along with the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and CAS. I will greatly miss each and every teacher and everyone from the Class of 2020. I am excited to attend the University of Southampton where I will be studying Naval Engineering.” And Adrian stated: “I am extremely grateful for the consistent support of my amazing teachers and the St George’s staff.”
The Class of 2020 are now in the process of confirming their university offers. Congratulations, Year 13!
