Excellent IB Results


The 2017 International Baccalaureate Diploma results, released on Thursday 6th July, brought excellent news for the fifty-three members of the Fettes Upper Sixth Form who for the past two years have been following the IB pathway. The IB is flourishing at Fettes with this year being the largest cohort ever. We are delighted that all the candidates were awarded the Diploma with an impressive average score of 37.1 points.

15 candidates, 28%, gained 40 points or more whilst 50% of the candidates gained or exceeded a score of 38 points (which in terms of the UCAS tariff is the equivalent of four A* grades at A Level). 68% of the cohort gained the benchmark score of 36 points or better, which equates to at least four A grades at A level.

“These highly impressive results are extremely gratifying and they reflect great credit on all of our candidates and their teachers. The IB is a rigorous test of broad-based knowledge and understanding; a high score in the Diploma can only be gained through focused hard work in support of a willingness to think and learn independently. All of our IB candidates should feel very proud of their achievements.”
