International Baccalaureate Results Day 2024

July 10, 2024 08:14am

Sixth Form students at Rochester Grammar School (RGS) are celebrating another year of outstanding International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results.

Rochester Grammar School offers this exciting curriculum in the Sixth Form to allow students to develop their full potential and to offer an internationally recognised education.

The IBDP is designed to prepare students for university. Students are graded out of 7 in three higher subjects and three standard subjects across a range of disciplines. Students also complete a Theory of Knowledge course, an Extended Essay and 150 hours of CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service), covering non-academic activities such as volunteering, learning new skills and community projects. Students are graded out of 45 for the entire IBDP.

This year, Rochester Grammar students have achieved an impressive average point score of 34, with nearly 20% of students scoring over 40 points, which is the equivalent to gaining A*A*A at A level.

As always there were some real highlights. Vanessa Lim achieved the maximum point score of 45, this puts her in the top 0.7% of students globally who study the IB and she is taking up a place to study Aeronautical Engineering at Imperial College London. Oakley Cooper achieved an amazing 44 points and is taking up a place to study Chemistry, also at Imperial College London. Alice Wilson achieved an impressive 43 points and is going to Warwick to study English Literature and Creative Writing. Ella D’Cruz achieved 42 points and is taking up a place at Leeds University to study International Business and Maria Zeba who achieved 41 and is going to University College London to study Biomedical Sciences.

There are also four students who have been successful in achieving competitive places to study Medicine. Sanjana Sathosh (43 points, University College London), Prachi Panchal (41 points, Kent & Medway Medical School), Naa Saka (41 points, University of Glasgow) and Elizabeth Carrington-West (39 points, University of East Anglia). Ada Rising also achieved 40 points and a place to study Veterinary Science at University of Liverpool.


Clare Brinklow, Principal at Rochester Grammar School said:

I am so proud of all our students who have worked so hard through their time in the Sixth Form. The IB is such a rewarding qualification and it was lovely to see the sense of achievement felt by so many students this morning. It was wonderful to share in their excitement and great to see so many of them taking up amazing opportunities at universities and apprenticeships. These outcomes are reflective of the dedication of the students and our fantastic staff who give so much support to students during their time here at RGS."

Congratulations to all of our students, many of whom are off to take up places at top universities such as University of York, Exeter, Surrey, Loughborough and SOAS University of London.
