On Thursday 6th July, the 2023 International Baccalaureate Diploma results were released bringing excellent news for the 45 members of the Fettes Upper Sixth Form who have been following the IB pathway for the past two years. 

In 2023 IB examinations were sat without adaptations for the first time since 2019, and we are incredibly proud of the courage and resilience shown by all Fettesians following the Diploma. The IB has continued to flourish at Fettes and the cohort scored an impressive average score of 37 points, matching the cohort of 2019 and 2022.

A quarter of all candidates gained 40 points or more, with 50% gaining or exceeding a score of 38 points. Four of our students deserve a special mention – two achieving 42 points, one achieving an outstanding 43 points and one scoring an exceptional 44 points with 777 at Higher Level. One student also achieved a bilingual diploma.

The IB class of 2023 leave Fettes for exciting destinations across the world at various institutions such as Columbia, Yale and Holy Cross universities in the US, St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland and Oxford (PPE and Human Sciences), Cambridge(Classics), KCL, UCL, LSE, Bath, Durham and Bristol amongst others in England. 

Mr Jonathan Marchant, Deputy Head (Academic) said, "I could not be prouder of the class of 2023 who sat these exams having not experienced the GCSEs of previous year groups to prepare them, yet their persistence and perseverance has been incredibly impressive to witness."

Head, Mrs Helen Harrison, said, "Our IB results are testament to a great deal of hard work from our students and superb support from our dedicated staff. Our IB students are ready for thenext exciting stage in their lives and they leave Fettes ready to make a very positive mark on their world."
