ACADEMIC RESULTS 2020

Many congratulations to the class of 2020 as Kent College students and staff celebrated another successful year for IB, A-level and GCSE. The results reflected the consistently high standards that the school has been achieving for many years across a wide variety of subjects and various different branches of study.

We are proud of all our students and the contribution they have made to the school and to the local and global community. The cohort of 2020 deserves to be particularly recognised for their hard work, professionalism and how they coped during the challenging period of lockdown in the UK using the opportunity to pursue academic enrichment and service.

International Baccalaureate

Together our students achieved an outstanding diploma average score for the fourth year running of 37 points, about 7 points above the world average. This score places Kent College amongst the top IB schools in the UK again this year.

When translated into UCAS (university entrance) points is similar to the number of points awarded for straight A*/ As at A level. 6 students achieved over 40 points and after scoring a perfect 45 points for the Diploma, previous Head Girl Abby Cox will be heading off to Cambridge this year to read Human and Political Science.

Over 165,000 students from 144 countries took the IB Diploma last year. The IB’s outlook is invaluable, instilling in our young people the capacity to understand and prosper in our global community. The IB Diploma, the global gold standard of education, will enable our students to proceed to the world’s best universities and go on to make a valuable contribution to society.


A Levels

Over half of our students this year achieved all A* - A grades while 76% of A level students have achieved A* - B grades.

This reflects our consistently strong A level performance over the last 5 years and the hard work and commitment of our students and staff. Our leavers have again been accepted in some of the best universities in the world including University College London, Imperial College London, Exeter University and universities in Europe and the USA. 48% of our students gained access to Russell group universities which represent the best 24 universities in the UK. They are reading courses as diverse as Theoretical Physics, Law, Medicine and Environment and Ecology to Architecture and Music.

Nearly half of our students achieved A grades ( the equivalent of grades 7 - 9 in the new system) and the overall pass rate was 100%.

97% of students achieved 5 GCSEs at 4-9 (the equivalent of A*-C). We are delighted that so many of our students are carrying on with their Sixth Form studies.
