Warminster School IB Diploma Programme pupils can be pleased with an impressive set of examination results. This year, there was a 100% pass rate, an excellent achievement, particularly given the academically rigorous demands of the IB, with a high number of requirements for pupils to fulfil. The IB world statistics for 2017 have not yet been released, but in 2016 the world pass rate was 80%, so a pass rate of 100% underlines the strength of the IB at Warminster School. The pupils are going on to universities in the UK and abroad, including Russell Group universities.

In addition, the School’s average score was 31 points, equivalent to 162 UCAS points or slightly more than two A* and an A grade at A Level, which shows that a very high level was maintained across the whole cohort. While the world statistics have not yet been released, an average of 31 is above the world average for the last five years. 

Standout performers included James Caldwell and Aydan Ali, who both achieved total points scores of 38 (out of 45). James goes on to read Engineering at Edinburgh University. A points total of 38 is equivalent to 230 UCAS points or just over four A*s at A Level.

The IB Coordinator, Dr Matthew Harris, says “I am pleased that all the pupils have passed their diploma, with so many of them getting high points totals which will enable them to go on to further study or work.”

The Headmaster, Mark Mortimer, added, “I am very proud of the pupils and these achievements. A pass rate of 100% is rare and impressive and stands as testament to their dedication and commitment. It also highlights the excellence of their teachers, who deserve great credit.”
