IB results at The Abbey are world class
The Abbey School is celebrating the outstanding results achieved by its seventh cohort of IB diploma students. The average score of 39 points places The Abbey’s students among the best in the world and has gained them places on a wide variety of courses at leading universities in the UK with 5 students heading for courses at Durham alone. Alisa Anwar achieved the rare accolade of a ‘perfect’ 45 point Diploma score , typically achieved by fewer than 200 students of the 160,000 students taking the IB Diploma worldwide.
A point score of 39 is at the level required to gain admission to the most competitive courses at the University of Oxford, and to achieve an average score at this level is a testament to the dedication and hard work of students and staff over the two years of the IB Diploma programme. Eight students exceeded this outstanding score.
The Abbey School has offered the IB Diploma for the past eight years, with consistently outstanding results being achieved by our students every year. Head of the School, Rachel Dent is delighted with the girls’ achievement: “The IB Diploma has for many years offered our students access to an academically rigorous and internationally-respected gold standard. The global perspective offered by the IB is a valuable asset on which to build successful careers in today’s networked workplaces. I’m hugely proud of our girls and congratulate them on their results, which are thoroughly well-deserved. We are particularly pleased that our overall points score average has increased to 39 this year, and that for the second year running one of our students has achieved a ‘perfect’ 45.”
