Record number of Regents’ students aim for Oxford and Cambridge


Year 13 students at Regents International School Pattaya are setting their sights high this year, with four of the 45 International Baccalaureate Diploma candidates submitting applications to join degree courses at the world-leading universities of Oxford and Cambridge in the UK.

The four have their work cut out for them, having applied for some of the most popular – and thus highly competitive – degree courses on offer at Oxford and Cambridge. Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE), Law, and Economics and Management are the degrees of choice for the Oxford applicants, and Natural Sciences for the Cambridge applicant.

The ambition demonstrated by every member of this year’s graduation cohort owes much to the impressive performance of last year’s graduates from the British international school, who scored on average 33 points in the IB Diploma Programme – more than 3 points higher than the global average. Three of those students achieved 40 or more points, recognized as the hallmark of an outstanding individual performance.

Head of Sixth Form, Rachel Batty commented, “At Regents, we believe that all students have the potential to become confident, independent learners who will achieve highly. When you combine that outlook with a large staff of very capable and motivated teachers who are specialists in their field, a great number of potential subject combinations and facilities which help prepare students for undergraduate life, it’s no wonder that results at Regents have improved significantly over the last two years. So, too, have our students’ success at obtaining places at excellent universities around the world.”
