Once again we are delighted to report on the success of BIS students in the IGCSE Examinations. The 2012-2014 cohort of students produced a set of results that puts BIS up with the top performing schools worldwide. Our congratulations go out to all involved in securing this success: parents for their unstinting support; teachers for their professional dedication and the students themselves for their effort and dedication in completing their studies. Here at BIS we pride ourselves on being a family and this was truly a family effort in which all played their parts.
Thanks to Mr Okosodo we are able to give you a few statistical highlights of this success: the overall pass rate in all subject areas ( A* to C grades) was 94.7%. Over 50% of the total grades awarded to BIS students were A* or A grades; 8 BIS candidates achieved a set of straight A grades, 5 subject areas achieved 100% pass rates while 9 others enjoyed pass rates above 90%.
Outstanding grades, no doubt, but the school will not be resting upon its laurels and a very careful analysis of the results will take place once school resumes to identify how we can maintain the highest grades and improve in other areas. The above results also throw down a challenge to the 2013-2015 cohort, can they match or beat their seniors?
Obviously some students did not achieve the highest results but I can assure you that it was not for the lack of effort in most cases, we can't all be good at everything and part of the BIS mission is to bring out and develop those non examinable talents and skills, something that judging by the schools our students are moving onto is equally successful.
BIS Straight A Students for the June 2014 IGCSE examinations include:
Oluwatomiwa Michelle Adegbola
Eseosa Jennifer Idemudia
Ayinoluwa Ayomikun Abegunde
Oluwasanmi Oluwayinka Toyobo
Mohammed Oluwadamilare Musa
Once again very well done everybody and we look forward to hearing of greater levels of success as you move on to new challenges. As you go through life we hope you will look back at BIS with a smile and a quiet nod of thanks to all who have helped you along the road to success.
