Scarborough College is delighted with another excellent set of results in the prestigious International Baccalaureate examinations. The average point score of over 33 is the best yet for the College, which has one of the best performing sixth forms in the north of England, based on its UCAS point scores.
The IB Diploma requires students to study six subjects to an advanced level, including maths, a modern language and a science. Some students did particularly well including Francesca Houghton who scored a blistering 44 points. This places her in the top 2% of students world wide which is pretty impressive! She will go on to study Natural Sciences at the University of Bath. Close behind were Philip Adams, the College’s Head Boy, who gained 40 points to secure his place to study History at York. Lisa Tam also scored 40 points and is destined for Durham where she will read Business Finance.
The Headmistress of the College, Isobel Nixon said, “The IB is a stimulating and challenging qualification which develops independent learning and intellectual curiosity. The range of subjects also gives our students the edge when applying for university places and jobs. We are absolutely delighted that so many of our students have achieved such good results.”
The international tone of the sixth form means that students are also well placed to apply to study at universities in Europe, the USA and beyond.
