Specialists' Examination Results 2013

Charterhouse is again celebrating an excellent set of examination results with 94% of Cambridge Pre-U examinations taken awarded Distinction or Merit grades. Seventy-one pupils achieved Distinctions (or their A level equivalent) in all subjects taken and twenty achieved the equivalent of A level A* grades in all their subjects.

Considerably more than half of the grades awarded to the School’s first ever cohort of IB Diploma Programme candidates were either Grade 6 or Grade 7 (Grade 7 being the highest). 20% of the cohort achieved 38 points or more which is typically seen as the minimum score for Oxbridge entry. The top score was a superb 44 points (out of a maximum possible 45 points).

Delighted pupils from both courses of study are now celebrating securing their university places, including the twenty-one who will be going up to Oxford and Cambridge this year and a number who are heading off to leading international universities, including Harvard, Yale, Chicago, Berkeley and beyond.
