Thirty one students at ACS Hillingdon International School last week received their International Baccalaureate (IB) exam results, with many going on to study at leading universities around the world.

Linda LaPine, Head of School at ACS Hillingdon, commented:

'I am immensely proud of all the hard work put in by our students during their IB studies. Once again, this year's scores have shown that all the commitment and effort has paid off. The entire cohort should feel immensely proud of all they have achieved this year and I'm sure this will be a great springboard into the next chapter of their lives, whether that is the world of work or higher education.'

ACS International Schools recently published the results of research which revealed that UK admissions officers are looking for students who have a good written English skills as well as a passion for their course subject and a positive attitude towards study.

The annual report published for the eighth year running also revealed that twice as many UK university admissions officers believed that the IB Diploma was the best qualification for preparing students to thrive at university compared to A-levels.

The research also indicated that admissions officers believed the IB diploma outperforms equivalent post-16 qualifications instilling students with key attributes such as independent inquiry, development of self management skills and ability to cope under pressure.

Linda LaPine added:

'It's very gratifying to have admissions officers confirm that we are equipping our students with the qualifications most highly rated by universities. It bodes very well for the students future in Higher Education and beyond school'
