Exam success for Hillingdon students

Published Thursday 6th of August 2015 05:02:10 PM

Over 20 ACS Hillingdon International School students recently received the results of their Advanced Placement (AP) studies, with 62 per cent achieving a grade three or above. 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 two students were granted an AP Scholar with Honours Award and one student received an AP Scholar with Distinction Award. In total the 2015 cohort took over 40 AP exams this season. Chris Green, High School Assistant Principal at ACS Hillingdon, commented: “I am delighted for the class of 2015, whose hard work has paid off. With over 60 per cent of students achieving a grade three or above, our students have once again shown great aptitude in what is a very demanding qualification.” The AP programme is taught in over 116 countries, with over 18,000 schools across the globe participating in the programme. Offering a range 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. Many of the graduating students from ACS Hillingdon will be going on to study at leading universities around the world. Mr Green added: “Our students’ success is thanks to the great efforts of the teachers, the support from parents and of course their own hard work. I wish them all the best for their future careers.”
