Results of Garden International School’s International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) international tests, given to 16 year olds, are the best ever!

Students from Garden International School (GIS) are celebrating after achieving an incredible batch of results. Out of 223 examination entries, 86 percent achieved an A*-C grade. That is far higher than the UK average.

Among the high-flyers this year were Yeshwant, Pratiman and Sarah. Yeshwant achieved an impressive 10 A*/Cs, Pratiman gained 9 A*/Cs while Sarah was awarded 8 A*/Cs, with six of those being A*. Another student, Yuto, gained nine A*-C grades while seven others were awarded 8 A*-C passes.

These results come just weeks after GIS’s International Baccalaureate (IB) results, which saw Ben Bartlett achieve the school’s best-ever score of 44 out of 45 points.

Most of the IGCSE students will now remain at GIS and join its successful International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), the world’s leading pre-university course.

Not only was the Year 11 group successful, several Year 10 students were so good they took a Mathematics IGCSE a year early – and passed.

Garden’s IGCSE Co-ordinator Chris Stokes said, “These are an incredible set of results. They reflect both the hard-work and dedication of our students and also the high standards among the teaching staff.

“We are thrilled that our students have done so well and achieved results that are truly exceptional. We are also delighted that so many will be staying on to take the IB course.”

Several subjects had 100 percent pass rates: Geography, Thai Language, English World Literature, Music, Design and Technology, ICT, Mandarin, PE, Spanish and Additional Maths.

Last year in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, 59 percent of all students got 5 A*-C passes at GCSE. The equivalent at GIS this year is more than 92 per cent.

Garden, which is the only school in the area to be fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), has been offering IGCSEs since 1996. Its results have consistently been higher than the average UK grades.
