Worth students are celebrating an excellent set of results in this year’s IB examinations, with one claiming the maximum points score of 45.

A quarter of our students scored 40-plus points, there was a 100% pass rate among our cohort and the average points total was 36.04, which compares very favourably with the global average of 33.02.

A maximum score, which was achieved by one of our students, is the equivalent of five A* grades at A Level. Only 1% of students globally achieve this standard. A score of 38 or more is the equivalent to five A grades at A Level.

Ms Naomi Williams, IB Coordinator, said: “The entire IB team is delighted with the results achieved by this year’s Diploma cohort. Everyone has had to work with such additional challenges during the last 18 months and it is testament to the hard work of the students and the dedication of their teachers that such impressive results have been the end result. All of our students are so very much more than can be represented in a single score at the end of a two-year course, nevertheless we are immensely proud of what these numbers represent.”

Mrs Alice McNeill, Deputy Head (Academic), said: “The IB programme at Worth goes from strength to strength with one of our biggest cohorts at Worth from August. These results reflect that progress and there are exciting times ahead.”
