Excellent International Baccalaureate Diploma Results

On Saturday 6th July, the worldwide International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results were released, bringing excellent news for the members of the Fettes College Upper Sixth Form who have been following the IB pathway for the past two years. 

We are incredibly proud of the achievements of this talented group of students who scored an impressive average score of 38 points, the best results at Fettes College since 2018. This is compared to a global average of 30 points.

Almost a third of all Fettes candidates gained 40 points or more, with 56% gaining or exceeding a score of 38 points. Four of our students deserve a special mention – two achieving 43 points, one achieving an outstanding 44 points and another, taking the diploma over three years, scoring an exceptional (maximum) 45 points.

The Fettes College IB class of 2024 leave Fettes for distinguished universities across the world such as British Columbia, Harvard, Amsterdam, as well as Oxford (English), Cambridge (Classics), LSE, Edinburgh and St Andrews.

Jonathan Marchant, Deputy Head (Academic) said, “The IB continues to flourish at Fettes. I could not be prouder of the achievements of the IB class of 2024. They have shown impressive industry, curiosity and creativity and can now enjoy the fruits of their labour."

The Head, 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 who maximise the opportunities for students to learn. Our IB students are ready for the next exciting stage in their lives, and we wish them well as they head out to make their mark on the world."

Fettes College offers both the International Baccalaureate and A Level pathways in the Sixth Form, with the A Level results released in August.
