Liverpool College achieves record results

Y13 Leavers 2011

Congratulations to our 2011 IB candidates and their teachers for an excellent set of results.

Highlights include:

  • 100% Pass Rate: Every candidate passed the rigorous IB diploma. The pass rate internationally is 78%.

  • Average points total of 33: Our candidates achieved an average point total of 33, equivalent to 456 UCAS point, better than A*A*A*. This average was four IB points better than last year. These results, if placed in the 2010 league tables of independent schools' IB results, would move Liverpool College from 38th to joint 21st.

  • Highest Grades: 44% of grades were at the highest grades of 6 or 7, compared to an international average of 27%.

  • Internationally only 13.5% of candidates achieve 35 points or better. At the College 31% of candidates achieved this distinction.

An amazing 8 of the 28 candidates achieved scores of 37 or better. Nick Rooney achieved a staggering 42 points and a place to read history at Durham. Antony Wilby achieved 41 points and a place for medicine in Cardiff. Gemma Cunliffe will read English and Foreign languages at Durham after achieving 39 points. Mette Alber, Tomasz Chadwick and Katie Mitton also achieved 39 points.

A majority of the candidates have already met the conditions of their first choice offers, and only a handful did not meet their second choice offer. Some of these candidates achieved scores which were very close to their offers, and we are hopeful many will achieve their place.

The results are a tribute to the pupils and their teachers who together embraced the challenge of the IB. We can all be very proud of the achievements of our pupils and teachers in the IB examinations this year.

There will be a reception for IB graduates, friends, families and teachers at Beechlands, today, beginning at 17.00.
