Success in one of the few external exams to survive the pandemic lockdown was today celebrated by a private school.

Recent graduates from Saltus passed the international Advanced Placement exams, administered by the College Board.

The school said 77 pupils took 170 of the advanced exams, which can be used as entrance qualifications or for course credits at college or university, and 71 per cent scored a level three pass or higher with the top level being five. A large number of the exams were taken by first year students who are not set to graduate from Saltus until June 2022.”

James Anthony, the director of the senior school, said: “This year’s AP results were a remarkable performance in such difficult times.”

In addition, 22 pupils were singled out by the College Board for outstanding results.

Ywione Darrell and Sanna Vogler were also awarded the AP international diploma.

This is the College Board’s top award, where pupils must score three or higher on five or more AP exams.

The exams must include English, a world language, a subject with a global perspective and one from the sciences or maths and computer science curriculum.

There were nine pupils given AP Scholar with distinction awards, five who got AP Scholar with honour awards and eight who achieved AP Scholar status.

Deryn Lavell, Saltus’s head of school, congratulated all the pupils on their strong performance.

She added: “Qualifying AP exam scores are recognised for university acceptance in over 100 other countries worldwide.

“All of the Saltus students who successfully navigated this challenging curriculum and completed their exams should be proud of their accomplishments on the global stage.”
