LET'S GO

Students at international schools in Thailand sat their A Levels in May – and the results released so far from Anglo Singapore International School (Campus 64), Harrow International School, Bangkok, and Shrewsbury International School show that students are beating global averages.

The proportion of students achieving the top grades at A Level has fallen to its lowest level for more than a decade according to the UK's Joint Council for Qualifications, with some 25.5% achieving an A Grade or higher, whilst 75.8% received a C or above (down from 77% in 2018 and the lowest level for 10 years).

The GCE Advanced Level or International A Level is a secondary school leaving qualification in the UK and an international school qualification worldwide. Students normally sit three A Levels, but some sit four, and others as few as two.

Used by University and College admissions services around the world, A Levels remain one of the most widely recognised pre-university and college entry examinations. Figures from UCAS (the University and College Admissions Service in the UK, which coordinates university placements across the country) show that 408,960 Sixth Formers from the UK and overseas have had places confirmed, while among UK students alone, 348,890 applicants have been accepted - a 1% fall compared to 2018.

There’s more than 35 of Thailand's 150-plus international and private schools that offer A Levels, with 19 schools following the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at college level instead.

The international schools that do offer GCE/International A Levels include:

Anglo Singapore International School (Campus 64)

Anglo Singapore International School celebrated a 100% pass rate in all subjects at A Level. The 55-strong cohort of Junior College 2 students achieved 43% A*-A. Top achievers included Sorawis Itthithavorn (Joe), Sorakrit Chonwattanagul (Nut) and Yu Liang Kwa (Liang) who all achieved the highest possible 4A*.

Shrewsbury International School

Shrewsbury International School was celebrating on results day with 65% of its students achieving A*/A; 82% got A*-B, and 93% got A*-C.

Harrow International School, Bangkok

Harrow International School, Bangkok reported a strong set of results: over 60% of examinations were graded A*/A, 12 students achieved A* in three or more subjects and a third of students achieved straight A*/A grades. Of 359 exams entered, over one in four were graded A*.

Students have secured places at universities including Oxbridge, Ivy League and the Russell Group.

Headteacher Jon Standen said: “My congratulations go to the students for their dedication, to our teachers for their expertise and passion, and to our parents for their support. This exceptional set of results opens the doors to the best universities in the world. I wish the Class of 2019 all the best, and look forward to meeting them at alumni events in the future and catching up with their news.”

Modern International School Bangkok

At Modern International School Bangkok the small cohort of 34 students achieved a 90% pass rate, and the top scoring student Naval Tapan Bhagat celebrated 3 A* and one A.
