Another Year of Extraordinary IB Results

We are very excited to announce this year’s fantastic IB Diploma Programme results! 16 of our 48 graduating students received 40 or more points, and in another astonishing achievement, this year’s outstanding student, Flora Tian, received a perfect score of 45 (one of only 213 students worldwide).

The IGCSE results received this week were also equally encouraging – with over half in the A* – B category, and a third As and A*s. A huge congratulations again to all of our students, and indeed the whole BWYA community. 

Now celebrating our 19th year of IB education, the strength of our teaching faculty, determination of our student body, and excellent track record are clear for all to see. With a 100% pass rate, and an average score of 35 (well over the world average of 29.63), BWYA has once again proven itself to be a truly excellent choice. 

Commenting on this year’s success, our IB DP Coordinator, Richard Ambler, said, “This year’s cohort has set new standards for our school community, and we look forward to using the gained momentum to propel future students to greater heights.” 

Of course, along with the excellent results, this year’s graduates also received many offers from prestigious universities around the world.
