IBDP Results 2019

ib 40

This year sees Hockerill students again celebrating another outstanding set of results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. Our cohort of 125 Year 13 students from Hockerill Anglo-European College took the IB Diploma and have now received their results, achieving an average point score of 36, six points above the global average of 29.8. The prestigious bilingual diploma was awarded to 26% of the cohort, and the College’s pass rate was 98%.

Students are celebrating their achievements in a range of subject areas. Twenty four students (20%) gained 40 points or over – an accomplishment for less than ten percent of IB Diploma students globally and which is equivalent to an A level score of “A*, A*, A*, A* and A”.

Particular congratulations should go to Faye Crawford, Lilian Fanderl, Madeleine Feerick, Gareth James and Katherine Lewington who all achieved 44 points, as well as Rachel Bintley, Juliette Chapman, Benedict Miles, Kristian Peters, CY Siu (all on 43), plus Guala Avogardro Di Vigliano, Isabella Brereton, Chloe Coleman, Giorgio Curti, Martha Hoult, Harry Tomlinson and Jennifer Winship on 41 points, alongside Alex Abouharb, Eboni Aymer-Jeffrey, Oliver Dellow, Frederick Fossey-Warren, Karen Isaacs, Ella Pickering and Georgina Priest who all obtained 40 points.

Sarah Pearson, Joint Acting Principal at Hockerill said, “We are immensely proud of all our students and their examination results. The IB Diploma is a challenging two-year course, often considered the gold standard in Level 3 qualifications. Our students have worked hard and are extremely well-prepared for their next steps at university and beyond.”

Students from Hockerill are going on to study at a wide range of universities, mostly in the UK, but with some heading off as far as China to study. Students are predominantly going on to study at Russell Group universities and five students have won places at Oxford or Cambridge.

How to obtain results and further advice

How to obtain IB results

Students may access their results from the IB website https://candidates.ibo.org from 13.45GMT on 6 July 2019 using individual PINs. PIN codes have already been issued to students from the Examinations Officer.  It is recommended that candidates use Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer to access the website.

If a student, narrowly misses a University offer

Contact Hockerill Anglo-European College via reception on Saturday 6 July 2019 between the hours of 14:45 – 17:00 to talk to a member of the IB results team or make an appointment for the week beginning Monday 8 July 2019.

Often final decisions will not be taken by universities until A- level results are published; clearing opens on Friday 5 July 2019.

Where to get advice

If parents / guardians and students wish to discuss either their IB results or a university admission, a team of senior staff will be available for consultation on Monday 8 July 2019; appointments may be made by contacting reception.

After this date, please send an email to ibresults@hockerill.com and a member of staff will respond to your enquiry.

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, students 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.
  • 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.  Students may also check the results website using their PIN for any change of grade.

Fees for re-marks

£72.00 per subject plus a one-off £5.00 administrative fee is payable.

Both payment and a signed Consent form are required before any request can be processed.

Requests must be received by Monday 9 September 2019 in order to meet the IB deadline.

Retakes

Very occasionally, students wish to retake one or more of their IB examinations, either in the November 2019 or May 2020 session.

Students should contact the College for details of deadlines and fees.

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.  Information regarding Clearing is on the UCAS website.

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 to universities with higher entry requirements.  Further information regarding ‘Adjustment’ is available on the UCAS website.
