I am pleased to report on IGCSE Examinations taken by Grade 11 and Grade 12 students in November of 2020. Colleagues will remember that these examinations had been postponed from the previous June owing to the cancellation of GCSE’s at that time on account of the Corona Virus and lockdowns around the world. Our 47 candidates sat 145 examinations and have performed well, especially given the circumstances whereby they sat the examinations, socially distanced, wearing masks, amidst partial lockdowns and even uncertainties as to whether they would actually make it to the examination hall. Whereas in 2018, the pass rate for IGCSE (A* to C) was 55% and in 2019 was 63%, in November 2020 it rose to 71% which is a credit to the students and to their teachers, both of whom were working under considerable pressure. Thanks are also due to the Cambridge Co-ordinator, and other helpers, who assisted in the administration or supervision of examinations.
Now we have the Grade 10 students ready to sit their IGCSE’s in May and June, assuming that the examinations take place, as scheduled by the Cambridge Board. The students have studied for their IGCSE’s over two years, are well prepared and should take confidence from the much improved results achieved by Grade 11 and Grade 12 students in November.
Thank you for all your efforts. In these dark and troubled times what is good news for most students is very welcome indeed.
David Gray (Principal)
