The Class of 2018 was composed of 72 candidates, of whom 69 (96%) were undertaking the full IB Diploma Programme. All candidates achieved at least 24 points and the IB Diploma was awarded to 68 of these (99%). Six students (9%) achieved a score of 40 or more out of a possible 45, and one achieved a rare perfect score of 45 (only 0.2% achieved this globally). The class as a whole achieved an average IB score of 33.5 points, significantly above the global average.
“Once more our students have demonstrated their ability to secure highly praiseworthy academic results while engaging in the range of diverse and challenging learning experiences which they enjoy at Aiglon,” stated the Head Master, Richard McDonald. “This is further affirmation that students can excel both academically, accessing universities and colleges of quality across the globe, while balancing this with active, healthy lifestyles and a multitude of personal passions and pursuits.”
“We are thrilled to see so many students succeeding and achieving fine exam results,” said Deputy Head (Curriculum) Nicola Sparrow. “And of course it was a particularly proud moment to see one of our students reach the magical score of 45!”
“It’s been a very strong year for university and college admissions,” asserted Director of College and Career Counselling Patience Fanella Koch. “Of the class of 2018, almost all are headed for their first or second choice of post-Aiglon option. We are pleased to see many highly competitive destinations, including Stanford, Yale, Cornell, Middlebury, Babson and NYU in the USA, McGill and the University of British Columbia in Canada, Imperial College and University College, London in the UK and St Gallen and the Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne in Switzerland, along with a long list of highly regarded institutions worldwide. In addition, many of our talented students secured scholarships in recognition of their exceptional merit.”
Results at (I)GCSE level were also strong, with 56% of all grades at A*/A or equivalent and 83% A*-B. Many students excelled, with one earning 11 A* grades and two achieving 9 A* and one A grade.
