Two schools celebrate 100% pass rate in IB exams
Two schools are celebrating a 100 per cent pass rate among students who took the International Baccalaureate programme.
Everyone in BHS and Somersfield Academy’s graduating classes received their IB diplomas, reflecting a 100 per cent pass rate compared to the global average pass rate of 88.96 per cent.
Somersfield Academy’s ten IB students scored an average of 33.88 points out of 45, with the highest individual score being 40 out of 45.
BHS’s cohort had an average point score of 35 out of 45 points – three points more than the global average of 32 out of 45.
Linda Parker, the head of BHS, said: “The Class of 2022 has been challenged during a remarkable period, but as a year group, and as individuals, they found ways to support each other and achieve their goals.
“They have proven themselves to be strong-minded, independent learners who are confident, talented and passionate young people, ready to take on the next chapter in their educational journeys.
“We are very proud of all of our IB students and we wish them continued success.”
The IB exams marked the first time that BHS’s Class of 2022 sat an international exam after the Covid-19 pandemic cancelled their I/GCSE exams two years ago.
BHS graduate Kristy Sanchez scored the highest of the cohort with 44 out of 45 points.
She will be heading to McGill University in Montreal, Canada to study biology.
Salayah Stange had the second-highest score with 42 points, and will study mathematics and actuarial science at the London School of Economics.
Cayetana van den Berg-Tejedor earned 39 points and will take a gap year before heading to the University of St Andrews, in Scotland, to study economics and sustainable development.
Anjelina Chandrasekaran, who received 37 points, will attend either the University of Leicester or the University of Birmingham, both in the UK, to study law.
Jada Davis was awarded 36 points and will pursue a Bachelor of Science in finance at Rutgers University in Jew Jersey. Yvé Smith and Ashley Attride-Stirling both got 35 points.
Yvé will pursue a Bachelor of Management in organisational studies at Western University in Canada. Ashley will complete a degree in art and design at Leeds University in the UK.
