Year 11 students from Doha British School are celebrating after achieving a record set of iGCSE results. A total of 48% of grades were secured at the equivalent of an A*/A grade (Grades 7, 8 and 9 in the new grading system) which is the school’s best ever set of results despite the more challenging syllabus and grading system introduced this year. A total of 89% of students have met and exceeded the benchmark standards of five Grade 9-4 including English and Maths.
The examination board were so impressed by the results that they awarded certificates of ‘exceptional performance’ to 28 DBS students. These awards are in recognition of students who met the requirements for the ‘High Achievers Awards’ category, where students achieved grades 8 or 9 in 5 or more subjects. This puts them in the top 1% of IGCSE students worldwide. DBS Vice Principal, Paul Sherlock said:
‘This is an outstanding achievement by our students and we are immensely proud of their success. Well done to all 28 for their hard work and dedication to their studies. To achieve these exceptional levels is testament to both the hard work of the students but also the relentless effort and dedication of all the teachers at DBS’.
A permanent focus on securing excellent academic outcomes for students is the core purpose of DBS. In addition students are encouraged to embrace the wider aspects of school life and to participate in the many extra-curricular activities on offer. A wider and broader commitment to develop the whole child is very important to the school.
