Following the global release of the 2022 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results, St George’s is delighted to announce an impressive set of results from our graduating cohort, who have once again performed significantly above national and global averages and maintained the excellent standards set over the last two years.
With the return to external examinations, this year’s graduating cohort of 78 Diploma Programme pupils achieved a 100% pass rate and an average points score of 37. St George’s pupils have excelled with 45% of candidates achieving an average score of 38 points or more out of a maximum of 45, and 29% of pupils achieving an average of 40 points or more.
Six pupils scored an exceptional 44 points out of 45: Gemma Dean, Isabella Azzoni, Jessica Chen, Matilde Iemma, Nicholas Hall and Vittorio Lin. A further three pupils achieved a score of 43 points, placing themselves among the very top performing candidates across the globe.
These excellent results will see St George’s students progressing to prestigious universities around the world, with the Class of 2022 holding offers from leading universities in the UK (Imperial, UCL, King’s College London, St Andrew’s, Warwick, Durham), the USA (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Georgetown, NYU) and Canada (McGill, Toronto, UBC). Elsewhere across Europe, Bocconi (Italy), Trinity College (Ireland) and Delft (Netherlands) are among the leading colleges and universities to which the Class of 2022 have received offers. Pupils are now in the process of selecting and confirming their final destination for their undergraduate studies.
Recognising the successes of the cohort, Head of Senior School, Ms Mary-Clare Startin commented: “We are very proud of the Class of 2022 and delighted for this graduating group. The results they have achieved are not only testament to their academic abilities but also their resilience and commitment, having faced disruption and challenges to their learning experience over the last two years. Their determination to give of their best and support one another throughout these challenges is a reflection not just of their ability but also of their character.”
"It is also impressive that these grades have not been achieved at the expense of contributing to the wider life of the school with a number of our departing Year 13 students being at the forefront of the school’s musical, dramatic and sporting endeavours. Of course, their success is underpinned by the unwavering support of the Sixth Form pastoral team, teachers and families. I am sure they would want to join me in expressing gratitude to them.”
