IB DP Results And University Destinations

We are extremely proud of our graduating class of 2020, who faced unprecedented challenges this year.

As many of you will be aware, the release of exam results this year has been fraught with difficulty, following the decision by the IB Organisation to cancel the May session of written exams. Across the world, many students have achieved results that were not a true reflection of their ability or the level they had reached, and this proved to be the case for many of students have as a group achieved a fantastic 34 point average, which solidifies the continual upward trend of St. John’s IB DP results, which can also be seen in the percentage achieving 38 points or higher and the number of Bilingual Diplomas. As a matter of fact, we were delighted to see a record-breaking 50% of our whole cohort achieve the highly-regarded Bi-lingual Diploma – well above the global average of 32%. Looking ahead, as more re-mark requests are submitted, and the revised results come through, we are confident that our grade point average will increase. You can find the current results below. 

    We are also very proud to pass on the university destinations of our Class of 2020! 

    As ever, our students are progressing to a wide range of universities. You may find the full list here: Download PDF. 

    We would like to express our thanks to Ms Walravens, Mr Prowse and Mr Vanderkelen who have proved to be phenomenal support to the students in this period of uncertainty, liaising with universities, and providing the support and information required to allow our students to move on to their next challenge in life.
