IGCSE Results May 2016

GIS students have been celebrating some spectacular IGCSE results.

The IGCSEs are the world's leading qualification for 16-year-olds. GIS students took these examinations in May and the results have just been announced.

Among the star students was Shilpi, who was awarded 7A*s and 1 A. Getting an identical number of grades was Seren. Also doing brilliantly was Shomit, who now has a total of 7A*s and 3As and Jignil, who now has a total of 5A*s and 5As. In total, 75 per cent of all entries were awarded a C grade or higher.

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is run by Cambridge University and is the world's leading examination for 16-year-olds. GIS is the most established IGCSE centre in the region. The school's results are regularly far above the global average.

In addition, several Year 10 students took IGCSE Mathematics a year early, and all passed, while some Year 9 students took IGCSE English as a Second Language (ESL) – and had a 100 per cent success rate.

Mr Stokes, IGCSE Coordinator, said: "These amazing results show the dedication of both our talented students and our teachers. The IGCSE is a major examination and we are very proud that GIS has again shown its results are well above average. To have so many subjects achieve 100 per cent pass rates is remarkable.

“We are also delighted that so many of these students have stayed and have now started the IB Diploma Programme with a view to continuing their studies at world class universities in the future.”
