Nord Anglia Education Students' I/GCSE Scores Exceed UK Averages

29 Aug 2017

HONG KONG, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nord Anglia Education, the world's leading premium schools organisation, today announced that 47% of grades received were the highest levels of  A* or  A in GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and IGCSE (International GCSE), up from 45.9% last year. This is more than double the UK average of 20%. 88% of Nord Anglia Education students' grades were A*- C, exceeding the UK average by 22 percentage points. 87.5% of students also received 5 or more A*- C.

For five consecutive years in a row, Nord Anglia students have far exceeded UK averages in A*- A grades and A*- C grades.

Nord Anglia Education's I/GCSE results at a glance:

  • 1,256 Nord Anglia Education students took the I/GCSEs in 2017
  • 47% of all I/GCSE grades achieved by Nord Anglia Education students were at the highest levels of A* or A. This is more than double the 2017 UK average of 20%.
  • The pass rate of Nord Anglia Education students for I/GCSE was 88%
  • For the second year in a row, nearly 90% of our students, including those in our bilingual schools, gained 5 or more A*- C grades

Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer of Nord Anglia Education said, "We are extremely proud of our students' IGCSE and GCSE results this year. For a fifth year in a row, students have far exceeded UK GCSE averages which is a testament to our students' and teachers' hard work, dedication to academic excellence, and our Be Ambitious philosophy. Congratulations to all our students on their outstanding results."

The GCSEs are qualifications studied by children age 14-16 in the British education system. Students study a wide range of subjects for two years, including extended assessed coursework and challenging terminal examinations. IGCSEs are a version of these programmes designed for students outside the UK. They are worth the same as a standard GCSE, and are equally recognised by education institutions in the UK and around the world.
