Ellesmere College celebrates 2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Results

Students at Ellesmere College are celebrating after the publishing of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results.

A high number of students achieved outstanding IB results and this is following on from the recent BTEC Sports Diploma results which saw a 100% pass rate only last week.

Natan Marczak, from Poland was the headline performer who achieved an outstanding 44 points with 45 being the maximum available. Natan will now read Economics at the New York University in Abu Dhabi.

Head Girl Kimberley Ong from Malaysia was next with 40 points; equivalent to A* A A grades at A Level. Kim will now go on to Edinburgh University to read Economics with Environmental Studies.

Bethan Huxtable from Shrewsbury achieved 38 points and will now read Politics and International relations at Bristol.

Paul Kontrus from Austria scored 36 points and will now read Geography at Kings College London.

Brendan Wignall, Headmaster of Ellesmere College said, "I would like to congratulate our International Baccalaureate students on their achievements - it's always a pleasure to see our students secure impressive grades such as these, and it's particularly pleasing to see all who wish to progress to university being able to do so. Credit also goes to the excellent work of our teaching staff and to parents for their constant support and encouragement."

The IB was introduced at Ellesmere College in 2006 as a challenging alternative to A Levels and is held in high esteem by top universities in both the UK and around the world. Students study six subjects, a course in The Theory of Knowledge, and produce a university standard Extended Essay as part of their assessment.

The publication of A Level results will be on August 15th and GCSE results on August 22nd.
