World Class Results for Exeter College International Baccalaureate Students

By July 25, 2018January 26th, 2021Member News & Updates, Why Exeter blog

Almost a quarter (22%) of students studying the International Baccalaureate (IB) at Exeter College have achieved 40+ points, the colleges highest ever results.  Above 40 points is the equivalent of five A Levels at A/A*. This places those students within the top five to ten per cent of students in the entire world.


In total over 86% of the college’s IB students scored an impressive 31 points or more, putting them ahead of the world average of 30 points (2017). Making this the most successful year of the IB at Exeter College ever.


The IB is an internationally recognised qualification that allows students to study six subjects across a wide range of disciplines spanning languages, arts, humanities, maths and sciences. Students also have to study theory of knowledge, complete an extended research essay and a portfolio. Which are all graded to calculate final points. 


The exceptional results mean many of Exeter College’s IB students are going on to fulfill their dreams of studying at world-leading universities. Including three who have been accepted to study at the University of Oxford.


John Laramy, Principal and CEO of Exeter College said:


“I would like to congratulate this year’s IB students on another exceptional year and thank their teachers for their hard work and dedication to the course. We have run the IB for approaching 20 years and have seen some incredible results. This year we are delighted that so many of our students achieved such high grades and have been able to go on to their chosen destinations. ”


The average points scored by Exeter College students was 35 this year, up from 34 last year and five points above the world average.
