Academic Results

How does the school perform in its IGCSE, A Level, CBSE, AP and IB results?

Very few schools provide comprehensive details of their results and it is something that WhichSchoolAdvisor.com is actively campaigning for.

British and IB schools in general provide some information, but often inconsistently. Indian schools often provide a list of "toppers" (top performing individuals) which really is no guide at all to the overall academic performance of the school.

Schools do not like to publish results in general - partly because they do not like to be benchmarked but also because examinations do not take into consideration their "value add". If a school is not selective on intake, then clearly the results it gains will not be as good as those of a selective based school. However, we believe that parents are aware of this, and should be given the same information they would be in other countries around the world.
