Students receive International Baccalaureate Diploma and Advanced Placement results This past week saw students of ACS Hillingdon International School receive both their International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) exam results, enabling them to go on to universities in the UK, US and around the world. IB results In total 35 IB diplomas were awarded to the 2016 cohort with 9 students completing bilingual diplomas in several languages including Italian, Japanese and Spanish. 32% of students achieved a grade six or seven, the equivalent to an A or A* at A-level. 17 per cent of IB Diploma students achieved 38 points or above, worth 567 UCAS points. To put this in context four A* grades at A Level is equal to 560 UCAS points. AP results 22 students also received the results of their AP studies with 68 per cent achieving a grade three or above. “Success” on an AP exam is defined as a score of 3 or higher that research finds predictive of university and degree success. The AP 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. Diane Hren, Head of School at ACS Hillingdon commented: “I could not be more proud of this year’s graduating class of 2016. They are dedicated, hardworking and very capable young people, and leave us ready and prepared to face the next steps in their lives. I wish them the best of luck in their career paths and I already look forward to hearing about their future successes.”  Many students from the 2016 cohort are going on to study at higher education at leading universities worldwide including Imperial College, Bristol, Leeds, University of Amsterdam, and Elon University in the US.
