BSM GCSE Results in Top 5%
Congratulations to all BSM students on their excellent GCSE examination results in this, our 40th Anniversary Year.
The proportion of students at BSM achieving 5A*- C (including English and Mathematics) was 94%. This significant achievement would once again place BSM in the top 5% of state schools in England.
We are also delighted that 49% of GCSE grades for BSM students were awarded A/A* this summer, up from 45% last year. By comparison the proportion of A/A* grades achieved in England this year declined from 22.4% in 2012 to 21.3%.
Mrs. Nadia Megnin, Head of Senior School said,
“The staff and I are absolutely delighted for the students, and we congratulate all those whose results are the well-deserved outcome of months of dedication and focus. We wish all of our students well as they look forward to embarking on their A level programmes here and across the world."
Indeed, following the excellent A level results reported on the BSM website last week, I am pleased to confirm that 87% of our Year 13 students have secured their first choice university destination, including places at Cambridge, Imperial College, London and UCL.
74% of our Year 13 students will be taking up places at the 30 most selective universities in the UK (as identified by the Sutton Trust and the Times University Guide), with 58% gaining places at Russell Group institutions (the top 24 universities in the UK).
BSM students have also gained places at prestigious universities across the world including; McGill University, University of British Columbia (both Canada), Florence Design Academy (Italy), EcolePolytechniques de Lausanne (Switzerland), Delft University (Netherlands), Otago University (New Zealand), Edith Cowan University (Australia) and Manipal Dubai University.
