International School of Cape Town outshines at Cambridge A Level exams

isctThe International School of Cape Town, an independent, co-educational international school offering quality British education to local and foreign students, has successfully ended 2015 with a 100% pass rate for their Cambridge International Examination A-level candidates.

The November 2015 A level results are stronger than previous years with results comparing favourably with the average achieved by five of the top, and in some cases much larger, international schools.

A Level results# % A*- A % A-B % A-D % A-E
INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF CAPE TOWN RESULTS   NOVEMBER 2015 47 74 97 100
TOP SCHOOLS’ AVERAGE 46 77 87 100

(#no comparative data is available at AS level as most countries do not recognise the AS levels as a school exit point, unlike South Africa).

Principal of the International School of Cape Town, David Hunter, says, “We are very pleased with the results of the Class of 2015, especially in an environment of increased competitiveness at university level.  Cambridge International Exams has come out as the benchmark which is of great assistance to a student entering the tertiary arena.”

Simeon du Toit was the top A-level student for 2015, with one A* (Chemistry) and two A grades (Mathematics and Biology); Jarryd Dunn studied a hybrid of two A levels and three AS levels and achieved one A*(A level Computing) and three As (A level Mathematics, AS Chemistry and Physics) and one C, and Kartikeya Bhardwaj attained an A for A level Maths and A grades for AS Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

The University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) is the world’s largest provider of international qualifications. It is part of the Cambridge Assessment, a not-for-profit organisation and a department of the University of Cambridge.
