Academic Achievement in Secondary School
Exceptional (I)GCSE Results
This year’s exceptional arrangements with the cancellation of the IGCSE exams meant that initially grades were awarded based on Centre Assessed Grades along with a standardisation process set by the exam boards.
Thankfully when the school campus was forced to close due to COVID-19 regulations in April, our students had completed all their courses and had covered all aspects of the syllabi; therefore, the grades achieved should be viewed equally to previous (I)GCSEs. The grades awarded, although not decided by examinations, are ones that we and our students should be extremely proud of.
We are delighted with the results of the cohort, collectively they achieved:
- An overall pass rate of 96 percent.
- Impressively, almost three-quarters of the grades (73.85 percent) were A* – A / 9 to 7
- 12 students received nine or more A*/9 to 8.
- 87.4 percent of the grades awarded were A* – B / 9 to 6
These results are even more impressive given that Bangkok Patana is academically non-selective. Rather than placing the emphasis on recruiting and supporting students who are already achievers, we our proud of the values that encourage our teachers and students to develop potential. Congratulations to the Class of 2023 and all the best as you begin your IB Diploma Programme!
