ACS Cobham students have this week received their final IB Diploma results with nearly 20 per cent achieving 40 points or above, worth over 600 UCAS points. To put this into perspective, five A* grades at A-level are worth 560 UCAS points. In total, 87 diplomas were awarded to the 2015 cohort, with 19 students completing bilingual diplomas in languages including Japanese, French and Spanish. Craig Worthington, Academic Dean and IB Diploma Co-ordinator, at ACS Cobham commented: ‘The ACS Cobham class of 2015 have achieved so much – they have truly proven their abilities with such a fantastic set of results, and shown hard work, dedication, and motivation that cannot be faulted.’ Many of the graduating students from ACS Cobham will be going on to study at leading universities around the world and on average students achieved 479 UCAS points. ACS International Schools recently published the results of research which revealed that UK admissions officers rated the IB Diploma Programme over A-levels and Scottish Highers as the best preparation to thrive at university. University skills best provided by the IB Diploma Programme include encouraging independent enquiry, cited by 87 per cent of officers; self-management skills, 76 per cent and an ability to cope with pressure, 72 per cent. Craig Worthington added: ‘I wish all of our graduating students the best of luck for the future, and have faith that they have the skills and ingenuity to succeed in all walks of life.’
