Students receive International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results this week ACS Egham students have received their final IB Diploma results this week with 21% per cent achieving 40 points or above, worth a minimum of 611 UCAS points or four A* grades at A Level. In total 40 diplomas were awarded to the 2016 cohort with 6 students completing bilingual diplomas in Spanish, German and Dutch. Over 55% of students achieved a grade six or seven, the equivalent to an A or A* at A-level. Jeremy Lewis, Head of School at ACS Egham commented: “I am immensely proud of all that the class of 2016 have achieved. By completing the IB Diploma, a world-renowned qualification, those continuing on to higher education could not be better prepared to embark on their university journeys. “I wish all of our graduating students the very best of luck for the future and I am confident they have the skill set to succeed in whichever path they choose to take.”  Many students from the 2016 cohort are going on to study at higher education at leading universities worldwide including LSE, St. Andrews, McGill’s and Drew, and on average students achieved 523 UCAS points. A full breakdown of this year’s result is available online at http://www.acs-schools.com/Exam-Results-acs-egham ACS International Schools recently published the results of research which revealed that UK admissions officers rated the IB Diploma Programme over A Levels as the best preparation to thrive at university. University skills best provided by the IB Diploma Programme include encouraging independent inquiry, 95 per cent; developing self-management skills, 84 per cent; and nurturing an open mind, 82 per cent.
