GWC pupils achieve 100% pass rate in International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

Published on 8 July 2019

We are delighted to have received examination results for our pupils studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, this year the pass rate was 100%. 

All of our pupils entered for the Diploma this summer achieved it by successfully completing all six subject disciplines and the core components of the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and Creativity, Activity & Service.

The highest mark possible is 45 points, which last year was only secured by 0.39% of candidates worldwide.  We are delighted that for the first time since we have been presenting pupils for the IB Diploma, one of our candidates achieved  the maximum 45 points. 

The average grade achieved by our pupils was an impressive 38.8 points out of a possible 45. This compares to a worldwide average of 29.8 points (May 2018). 

Principal Mr Melvyn Roffe said: “I am delighted that our IB pupils have achieved so well in these world class examinations. The IB Diploma not only examines subject knowledge and understanding but also pupils’ ability to make connections between subjects and apply learning. That our pupils have done so well is a testament to their talents and how they have been nurtured by our staff.”

In addition to their academic subjects IB pupils have over the course of two years also taken part in CAS; Community, Activity and Service. They leave us well prepared to take on the challenges of university, work and an increasingly global world.
