Continued International Baccalaureate Success

Continued International Baccalaureate Success

The Sixth Form International Baccalaureate pupils were justifiably delighted with a very strong performance in this year’s Diploma examinations.

The results, which were published today, saw pupils achieve an average score of 32 points, equating to three A* grades at A level (435 university entry points). The class of 2015 therefore have matched the excellence of previous Warminster IB pupils. In addition, the School has shown a remarkable degree of consistent excellence in this qualification since being authorised to deliver the Diploma in 2006.

The top performing student was Alexander Huebner with 40 points (the equivalent of over four A* grades at A level). This puts him in the top 5% of students globally.  A talented Economics student, he gained a bilingual diploma. Alexander now has the choice of continuing his education at King’s College, University of London or returning to university in Germany. Emir Corbo from Bosnia equally has the luxury of choice and his 37 points matches the offer made to him by the highly acclaimed London School of Economics.

These results place other Warminster pupils in a good position to further their university ambitions in a globally competitive higher education market.  We are delighted, in particular, that Katerina Voitukhova, who scored 35 points, will take up a place to study Economics at McGill University in Canada whilst School Prefect Nele Wessels, won a place at the newly founded and prestigious Hochscule Rhein Waal Business University in Germany.

Miss Sarah Matthews, IB Coordinator, was once again impressed with how the pupils responded to this demanding programme. “I would like to congratulate our 2015 leavers, and wish them well as they approach their university careers. I have enjoyed observing their progress over the last two years, and know that they leave us with some excellent academic results behind them, which will stand them in good stead for university life and the challenges that lie ahead in the world of work.”
