IB Exam Report 2018

July 6, 2018

We are delighted to announce another great set of results from the IB Diploma cohort, with almost a quarter of pupils scoring 40 points and above. Special mention must be made of Jessica Raja–Brown who scored a remarkable 45 points. Fewer than 1% of the cohort globally score maximum marks which, as benchmarked by UCAS, is the equivalent to 5 A*s at A level. Kitty Parker also came away with 44 points, which will easily enable her to take up her place at Durham.

84% of Bradfield pupils achieved between 7 and 5 in their higher level subjects (equivalent to A*- B at A level) and two of our Oxbridge candidates Olivia Lee-Smith and Elias Tenhula met the requirements to take up their offers. The overall points average was slightly down on last year at 35.1. This is indicative of the inclusive nature of the Diploma at Bradfield, which welcomes and accommodates all abilities in a steadily growing cohort (25% of 2018 leavers). As well as Oxford and Durham, this year will see pupils taking up university places at Imperial, Exeter, KCL, Edinburgh and UCL, whilst one pupil has been offered an apprenticeship at PWC.

The IB Diploma at Bradfield continues to thrive. Pupils who complete the programme leave with transferable skills such as time-management, research skills and an international, outward looking perspective, which will stand them in good stead for life beyond Bradfield.

We wish them well for the future.
