DBS Students Achieved A Perfect Set Of IGCSE Results!

Doha British School students were celebrating after achieving a record set of iGCSE results. A total of 48% of grades were secured at the equivalent of an A grade (Grades 7,8 and 9 in the new system) which is the school’s highest ever figure despite this year’s new more challenging grading system.  A total of 89% per cent of students have met and exceeded the benchmark standards of five Grade 9-4, with 80% of students achieving five Grade 9-5.

All students hope it will be good news when they open their envelope on iGCSE results day but for DBS student Natalie Magness, the news could not have been better. Natalie achieved a perfect set of results with ten grade 9s.

Natalie will now be continuing her education at Doha British School 6th Form where she will study A Levels in Music, Biology and Chemistry.

Terry McGuire Principal of DBS, said: “I am immensely proud of all staff and students at DBS. These results are a fantastic achievement especially under the new very challenging system of iGCSEs. 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 Natalie and all our students and are looking forward to working with them on A Level courses next year”
