KWC students celebrate International Baccalaureate results

35 students achieved an overall average of 31.1 points

Students at King William's College have received their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme results.

The 35 Year 13 students achieved an overall average of 31.1 points, with 5 students achieving 40 points or more.

That's the equivalent of A*A*A at A-level when converting to the UCAS tariff, while 40 points for IB is an acknowledged ‘world class’ score. 

Fourteen students got 35 points or more. 

Several students are applying outside the UCAS system, to universities in Europe, the Middle East and Hong Kong.

A couple are heading straight into employment or service, and a few have committed to gap year schemes. 

Mike Roberts, Deputy Head Academic at King William’s College, said: "We are very pleased with the overall average of 31 points per student, considering our gentle entrance requirements for Sixth Form. 

"The students deserve every credit for their commitment to their six chosen subjects and the three core components. 

"They have benefited hugely not just academically, but also in terms of their character development – the Diploma really is a holistic qualification to set young people up for success in future study, work, service and general life."
