Exam Results 2016

The BSN is a non-selective school with a wide range of nationalities and abilities, and we pride ourselves on setting high standards for all our students. Our students work hard and our teaching staff match their efforts in supporting all our students to reach their potential.

News of IB Success 2017

Summer 2016 has proven this hard work with another successful season of exam results for BSN students. After two years of resolute studying, students in the GCSE, A Level, IBDP and IBCP courses have achieved amazing results.

A Level Results | IB Diploma Results | IB Career-Related Programme | GCSE Results

We had a 100% pass rate with every student achieving their IBDP or IBCP qualification - our IBDP average score is 37 - compared to the world average of 30.1. This was our first cohort for the IBCP, so they have set a very high standard for their successors. 93.5% of students who took their GCSE's received A*-C grades and the A Level programme resulted in 65% of students earning A*-B grades with an average point score of 300 (equivalent to three B’s) across the cohort. 

Results like these exemplify the strength of teaching and learning here at The BSN. Not only do we aim to guide students to have a strong study ethic, but to feel confident in pursuing their educational choices and ambitions following their time at The BSN. 

Examination Results

A Level

65% of students achieved A*-B grades (UK average 52%) alongside an average point score of over 300 (equivalent to 3 B’s) – it has been a great year for our students.

IB Diploma Programme

The BSN students’ average score of 37 points, compared to the world average of 30.1, shows once more that the hard work and dedication of the students, the support of their parents and the excellent teaching at The BSN is a winning combination. These figures also mean that 86.7% of these BSN students scored higher than the global average.

Two BSN students achieved 44 points, placing them in the top 1% of the world.

IB Career-Related Programme

This year saw our first cohort of IB Career-related Programme students successfully complete the qualification – a brilliant foundation for their future university courses.

GCSE Results

This year we saw a remarkable 93.5% of students achieve grades A*-C (against the UK 66.9%) and nearly half of those were A*-A.
