Exam success for Cobham students

Published Thursday 6th of August 2015 03:38:33 PM

Over 140 ACS Cobham International School students recently received the results of their Advanced Placement (AP) studies, with 33 per cent achieving a grade five, the top score in the AP. To put this into context an AP grade five is worth 120 UCAS points or the equivalent of an ‘A’ grade at A Level. Additionally 60 per cent of the 2015 cohort achieved a grade four or above. Thirteen students were granted an AP Scholar with Honours Award and twenty students received an AP Scholar with Distinction Award. In total the 2015 cohort took over 300 AP exams this season. Amanda Briggs, Assistant Academic Dean at ACS Cobham, commented: “The class of 2015 have made a tremendous impact on the school during their time here so it’s fantastic that so many of them have achieved the results they deserve. The set of high scores is a true testament to the hard work our students have put in.” The AP programme is taught in over 116 countries with more than 18,000 schools across the globe participating in the programme. Offering a range of subjects, the AP enables students to earn valuable credit at universities in North America who are keen to accept students who can demonstrate they are hard-working and committed. ACS Cobham is the only school in the country that also offers the innovative AP Capstone Diploma, which encourages students to develop strong research and seminar-based skills ready for higher education. Many of the graduating students from ACS Cobham will be going on to study at leading universities around the world. Ms Briggs added: “The entire cohort should feel immensely proud of all they have achieved 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.”
