Our IB pupils received the results of their International Baccalaureate Diploma examinations today.
The IB Diploma is increasingly recognised as the international benchmark qualification for pupils leaving secondary school. Pupils study six subjects and the core components comprising an Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and Creativity, Action & Service.
The Watson's pass rate was 100%. Of our 21 candidates, 13 achieved 36 points or more, with 3 achieving 41 points or more of a possible 45 and one achieving a very impressive 44 points, putting them on a par with the very best performing candidates across the globe.
The IB Diploma course is rigorous yet enjoyable and encourages pupils to study more widely across a range of subjects, think more deeply about the world we live in and become self reliant in their studies. It complements our SQA courses very well and gives pupils an excellent preparation for university, whether in Scotland or further afield. These results are a vindication of two years of work by pupils and the enthusiasm and skill of their teachers here at Watson's.
