Exam Success 2021
After an unsettling year of change in response to the pandemic, Christ’s Hospital IB pupils followed the non-examinable route for qualification and achieved a phenomenal set of results, the strongest of any previous Christ’s Hospital IB cohorts.
Although a small group of 13 talented pupils, nothing can be taken away from the cohort’s average points score of 40.3 out of 45. This is equivalent to 248 UCAS points or A*, A*, A*, B, B at A2-Level. 49% of all the grades awarded were top Level 7 and 83% of them were Level 6 or 7. 7 pupils achieved 40+ points and almost all the pupils achieved 36 points or higher.
Head Teacher, Mr Simon Reid, commented, “This is a remarkable set of results, and it captures the achievements of a particularly talented and engaged set of individuals, including the Senior Grecian, Amber Dansoh. Despite the challenges encountered over the last two years, all IB pupils should rightly be proud of this strong and well-deserved set of results. They are testament to the pupils’ acumen, resilience, and fortitude as they embraced all that they were offered by the IB and Christ’s Hospital. We wish them all the very best for the future.”
Many in the cohort distinguished themselves by achieving places for highly competitive courses at some of the very best institutions. Although huge congratulations should go to all the pupils, there are some notable individual achievements including the following:
Charlotte Ogden-Meade, 44 points (Anthropology, Durham)
Manon Howard, 44 points (Comparative Literature, UCL)
Cameron Smith, 42 points (Maths and Physics, Warwick)
Charis Leto, 42 points (Italian with Film Studies, UCL)
James de Savigny, 42 points (Language and Culture, UCL)
Amber Dansoh, 41 points (Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, Oxford)
Freddie Northcott, 41 points (International Relations, Exeter)
