Sevenoaks students celebrate another fantastic year of IB results
Many congratulations to the Class of 2018 on their outstanding examination results – among our best results in recent years from one of our largest cohorts.
At 215 students, our cohort is among the biggest of UK and world-wide IB schools, and together they achieved the remarkable average diploma score of 39.5 points (ten points above the world average, 29.8). The median is 40, and the mode, for the 2nd year running, is 44 points.
Twelve students achieved the maximum 45 points, with 26 securing 44 points and another 22 securing 43 points. Over 53% of the cohort achieved 40 points or more – a truly excellent result.
The Head, Dr Katy Ricks, said, “We are once again delighted by our students’ performance. These tremendous results are a validation of the school’s ethos and approach to learning: “We teach our students how to think.”
• 12 students gained the maximum 45 points for the IB Diploma• 26 students gained 44 points • 114 students gained diplomas with 40 or more points • The mean points score is 39.5 • The modal points score is 44 • The median points score is 40
