Doha British School (DBS) students were celebrating after achieving another set of outstanding exam results. At iGCSE level, a total of 51% of students achieved grades, the equivalent of an A/A* (Grades 7, 8 and 9 in the new system), which is the school’s highest ever figure despite the new more challenging grading system. A total of 95% of students have met and exceeded the benchmark standards of five or more grades 9-4, with 81% of students achieving five or more grades 9-5.
All students hoped it would be good news when they received their results on iGCSE results day but for DBS student Shada Koduymayil the news could not have been better as she achieved a perfect set of results with ten grade 9s, while Fiaz Mahmood and Kanzah Maktoum both earned nine grade 9’s.
Students at DBS 6th form were also celebrating, with students achieving the schools highest set of results. Two students, Yaman Al-Haneedi and Benedict Canillo achieved 3 grade A’s at AS level. Students studying the International Baccalaureate weren’t to be out done, with 92% of students achieving a pass with outstanding points scores from Juanita Joseph and Muhammad Arsal Taimoor achieving 42 points out of 45.
Paul Sherlock, Principal of DBS, said: “I am immensely proud of all staff and students at DBS. These results at iGCSE, AS level and IB are a fantastic achievement especially under the very difficult circumstances all our students and staff have faced this year. This just goes to show what can be achieved with the right combination of talent, constant dedication and a willingness to work consistently hard. We are all delighted for all our students and are proud of their achievements. We have record numbers in our 6th form, as students continue their education on our different post 16 pathways, which include a range of A Level courses now on offer. We are looking forward to working with all our students on their chosen courses next academic year.”
