IGCSE 2020 – HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF IN (ANOTHER) RECORD BREAKING YEAR!

Though this year has seen difficulties and hardship, our pupils at Wycombe Abbey School Changzhou have achieved the best IGCSE results in the School’s history, with another 100% pass rate in all subjects.

Mr Fielden (Head of Year 11), commented “It is wonderful to see our pupils receiving recognition for their efforts, and to see the school continue to go from strength to strength. I look forward to seeing all our pupils repeat today’s successes in future years as part of our Sixth Form.”

This year, the School saw an exceptional 49% increase in A** grades – the top 5% of grades in the world – letting Wycombe Abbey pupils shine in their future applications to world-class universities. In addition, the School obtained results in 20 IGCSE subjects - this breadth of opportunity supports our pupils in a wide range of academic disciplines.  

An impressive 16 pupils received results consisting only of A**- A. Pupil Titania Huang achieved the highest grades possible in all her 8 subjects. When asked to describe how she felt upon receiving her results and seeing her perfect scores, she replied “I feel proud of myself and I am grateful to all of my teachers for the guidance they provide. I would not have been able to achieve these perfect results without my supportive teachers and friends. I am so happy, and I am really looking forward to starting my A Levels.”

- 116 total A** grades
