Examination Results

SIXTH FORM Examination Results 2018

Charterhouse is again celebrating an excellent set of examination results with 92% of Cambridge Pre-U examinations taken awarded Distinction or Merit grades. Fifty-four pupils achieved Distinctions (or their A level equivalent) in all subjects taken; sixteen achieved the equivalent of A level A* grades in all their subjects.

The IB Diploma Programme results this year were also pleasing: this was our largest cohort to date and continues to be fully representative of the gamut of our pupils. The average points score per candidate was 35 (out of 45) which is in line with last year’s results (similarly across the broad range of ability amongst the pupils) and remains significantly above the worldwide average of 30 points; 53% of candidates gained 36 points or more, and a pleasing number of candidates made their first choice offers in the UK, Europe and the US.

Pupils from both courses of study are now celebrating securing their university places, including those pupils who have achieved their offers for Oxbridge entry as well as to leading international universities such as Berkeley, Bocconi, Columbia, Chicago and NYU.

Dr Alex Peterken – Headmaster said that he was “delighted with the considerable success that pupils had demonstrated” and congratulated the pupils on “both their commitment and energy that have resulted in some very fine results”. He also paid tribute both to the teaching staff, for all their endeavours in preparing pupils for the examinations, and to the support for the pupils that continues to be provided by the whole of the Charterhouse community.

(I)GCSE RESULTS 2018

This year’s Charterhouse (I)GCSE results show a record number of A* grades: 57% of subjects taken were graded at A* (or the equivalent in the new 9-1 scale) and the figure for A* and A grades combined was 75%.

All of the Year 11 pupils at Charterhouse take a minimum of nine (I)GCSEs: fourteen pupils this year gained straight A* grades and a further 37 achieved all A*s and As, comparing very favourably with recent years.

Dr Alex Peterken, the new Headmaster, expressed delight at these results and congratulated the boys on their efforts, as well as those of the teaching staff in providing outstanding guidance and support.
