IB Results 2017
Today’s IB results reveal our hardworking pupils’ success in a wide range of subjects. We are delighted to report that they will now go on to confirm places at prestigious universities in the UK and overseas.
The Warden said, ‘It has been incredibly pleasing to see take-up of the IB grow at St Edward’s. Now at 50/50 A Level/IB we are considered one of the fastest growing IB schools in the country. It is important to St Edward’s that our pupils have a choice – different programmes suit different people. It is clear, though, that the IB is suitable for a broad range of academic abilities, not just the academic elite. Many of this year’s successful candidates achieved higher marks than they might have done at A Level simply because the working style suited them.’
‘Congratulations to all our successful candidates, and best of luck to our A Level and GCSE pupils whose turn will come in August.’
Aaron Gruen was awarded the highest possible score of 45 points, a feat achieved by less than 1% of IB candidates worldwide. Aaron received three offers from Ivy League universities in the US – Cornell, Columbia and Brown – and will now take up his place at Brown to pursue a dual degree in Chemistry and Music.
