Examination Results

Specialists' Examination Results 2014

Charterhouse is again celebrating an excellent set of examination results. 93% of Cambridge Pre-U examinations were awarded Distinctions or Merits (A*- B grade in the A level equivalent). Sixty-six pupils achieved Distinctions (or A* / A grade in the A level equivalent) in all their subjects, while thirty-four achieved the equivalent of A level A* in at least three of their subjects.

The IB Diploma Programme results were also extremely strong: almost three-quarters of grades awarded were either 6s or 7s (a 7 being the highest) and just over 50% of the cohort achieved 38 points or more (typically seen as the minimum score for Oxbridge entry).

Delighted pupils from both courses of study are now celebrating securing their university places, including not only fifteen pupils who have achieved their offers for Oxbridge entry, but also eleven pupils who have secured offers to leading US universities, such as University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Virginia and Yale.

Headmaster Richard Pleming said: “My staff and I are absolutely delighted with these results, which are a tribute to the hard work and ambition of our pupils, and the commitment and dedication of their teachers.  Charterhouse continues to focus closely on academic expectations and achievement, and these results reflect the success of everyone’s efforts.”

(I)GCSE Results 2014

Our 2014 (I)GCSE results are the best ever set of results that we have recorded. 49% of subjects taken were graded at A* and the figure for A* and A grades combined was 82%. 100% of candidates passed their examinations with a grade C or above.

All of our Fifth Form pupils take a minimum of nine (I)GCSEs: fourteen pupils this year gained straight A* grades and 64 achieved all A*s and As.

James Kazi, Deputy Headmaster (Academic), paid credit to the boys for their efforts and to the Charterhouse teachers for their support: “This is a splendid set of results marking the significant endeavour of the boys and their beaks who have worked so hard together: we are incredibly proud of their achievements and these will be a great foundation on which the pupils can build their Specialist studies on either the Pre-U courses or the IB Diploma Programme.”
