Our IB Diploma and Career Programme results for 2017 have been published and we are proud to see how well our students have done. Steffen Gutermann and Isabell Czech both achieved 40 points. This places them in the top 5% of IB Diploma candidates internationally and will open the doors of any university to them. Sara Meyer obtained 38 points which places her in the top 13%.These are the best results that students from GCS have achieved and are a reflection of both the students’ dedication and the commitment of their teacher.
The IB results are awarded on a 1 to 7 scale, with a 4 a pass mark and a 7 the top result. Students take 6 subjects with 45 the maximum (3 points are awarded for the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge) and must score 24 points to be awarded the Diploma. Overall, our average for the 2017 class was 30 points, which is the international average, and our pass rate was 80%, which is the international average.
In comparison, last year our top score was 37 points and our average was 31 points.

Another successful year for our IBCP students.
This has been another successful year for our Gr12 IBCP students as they complete their course. The IBCP is an innovative programme of study for students in Grade 11 & 12 which combines the academic subjects of the IB Diploma, a BTEC Level 3 National Diploma course and a core of subjects which focus on work placements and the skills needed for the work place. The graduating class of 2017 numbered 18, with 17 being awarded the full IB Career Programme Certificate and all 18 being awarded the full BTEC National Diploma qualification. Our students also are externally assessed for the IBCP Reflective Project which is a challenging piece of work submitted by students and which must focus on an ethical issue relating to their chosen career path. This year’s results are again excellent with 100% pass rate for the Reflective Project.
Our IBCP students have gained offers at universities in the UK, UAE, Canada, Australia, plus some are entering employment. From the beginning of the IBCP course in 2011 where GCS was a pilot school and had 4 students, to date there have been 55 students graduating with 47 currently studying at university and 8 in employment. Our very first IBCP student, Alina Bushinskya graduated with a BA in Business Administration from Emirates Aviation University in May 2017, and is now studying a Master’s in Business at EAU.
Many congratulations to all our students!
