Forty students at ACS Egham International School last week received their International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma exam results. The maximum score at IB Diploma level is 45, and eighteen per cent of students achieved a score of forty or above.

Many of the graduating students from ACS Egham will be going on to study at leading universities around the world.

Alan Perkins, IB co-ordinator at ACS Egham commented:

'The class of 2013 should feel immensely proud of all they have achieved today. These fantastic results marks the end of all the student's hard work which goes on throughout the IB programme. This year's class has been a tremendous example to the school and a pleasure to work with, I wish them all the best for the future.'

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.

Jeremy Lewis, Head of School, 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'
