Exceptional Results for Hockerill Anglo European College's Sixth Form Students

Hockerill sixth form students are celebrating a phenomenal set of results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme, with the College achieving the joint highest results in its history. The official statistics produced by the International Baccalaureate show that Hockerill students achieved an average of 36 points.  Dee Spackman, Vice Principal was delighted with the results, “I am incredibly proud of the achievements of our students and delighted with the exceptional performances that have been shown by this year’s leavers.” 

21% of all candidates scored 40 points or more (global top 5%), which is equivalent to A*, A*, A*, A* at A level. 

Of those applying to University through UCAS, 98% have received the good news that they have been awarded their chosen institution with 77% of these being to a Russell Group University*.  Five students have had places confirmed at either Oxford or Cambridge. 

Head Boy Noah Lawson and Joshua Vitzthum are celebrating achieving the maximum 45 points (the equivalent of 5 A* grades at A level), a score achieved by only 218 students worldwide out of almost 160,000 IB students in total. They are joined by a number of other students with scores above 41 points: Taha Alibhai (44), Abigail Dallas (43), Tristan Fruh, Lars Leimkuhler, Milly Lynch , Izzy Budd (all 42) Gaia Casolino, Harriet George, Olmo Gordon, James Greatrick, Vanessa Igoe, Francesca Ixer, Andre Masnyk, Celestya Riva, Pierce Tindale and Kristie To (all 41).

Richard Markham, Principal at Hockerill said, “The IB Diploma is without doubt one of the most rigorous and demanding qualifications available to students, and the College is absolutely delighted that the Class of 2017 has risen to the challenges posed and achieved such impressive results.” Steve Clark, Director of Sixth Form added his own praise to the students for their effort and reflected that, “These results are a fitting reward for the time and effort expended by students and staff over the past two years.”

IB Diploma Results Guidance for Candidates
How to obtain IB results
Students may access their results from the IB website https://candidates.ibo.org from 13.45GMT on 6 July using personal codes and PINS available from ManageBac. It is recommended that candidates use Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer to access the website.
If a student narrowly misses a University offer they should get in contact with Hockerill Anglo-European College on 6th or 7th July 2017. The College could, for example, send a letter or e-mail in support to the relevant university. Often final decisions will not be taken by universities until A- level results are published.
Clearing opens on Wednesday, 5th July.
Where to get advice
If parents / guardians and students wish to discuss either results or a university admission, a team of senior staff will be available for consultation until Friday, 7th July. Appointments may be made by contacting reception.
Requesting a re-mark
When results are accessed, students will be able to view their overall total mark by subject together with details of lower and upper boundaries for the grade awarded. A re-mark request may be considered if the mark achieved is within close proximity of the upper grade boundary. This will need to be authorised by a senior member of staff.
As a re-mark may result in the award of a lower grade, candidates will need to sign a Consent Form which is available on request or may be downloaded from the College website.
Re-marks can only be requested for a subject, not individual external examination papers.
Re-marking does not include Multiple Choice Papers or Internal Assessment.
There is no guarantee that a re-mark will help secure a university place if a student narrowly misses a conditional offer.
Students will be notified by e-mail of the outcome of re-mark requests by the College as soon as possible after this information is received from the IB. Candidates may also check the results website using their PIN for any change of grade.
Fees for re-marks
£70.00 per subject plus a one-off £10.00 administrative fee is payable.
Both payment and a signed Consent form are required before any request can be processed.
Requests must be received by Wednesday, 13th September in order to meet the IB deadline.
Please send completed IB EUR Candidate Consent Forms and Credit Card Payment Forms to Ms Clare Yates yatesc@hockerill.com
Retakes
Students wishing to retake one or more subjects in the May 2018 session should contact the Examinations Officer in September for details of deadlines and fees.
Please send completed Retake Application Forms and Credit Card Payment Forms to Ms Clare Yates yatesc@hockerill.com
Clearing
Students missing both offers are entitled to enter ‘Clearing’ though UCAS. The Clearing system advertises vacancies for degree courses; decisions are made quickly by universities, often on the same day when contacted directly. Courses can be applied for through Clearing regardless of which subject an applicant originally applied for. Information regarding Clearing is available at https://www.ucas.com/connect/blogs/five-things-you-need-know-about-clearing.
UCAS also offers an ‘Adjustment’ service. This allows students who have exceeded the entry standards of the universities to which they originally applied to re-apply, from 17th August, to universities with higher entry requirements. However, it is unlikely that top universities will have any places available for competitive courses and some may have publicly stated their decision to opt out of this process entirely. Further information regarding ‘Adjustment’ is available at https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/apply-and-track/results/ucas-adjustment-%E2%80%93-if-you%E2%80%99ve-done-better-expected
