FELSTED students hit the mark today (Tuesday) in a successful batch of International Baccalaureate (IB) results.

Twenty-nine pupils received the school's IB results after studying six subjects, three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level, each being awarded up to seven points.

At Higher Level, 77 per cent of the grades were at five points or higher and at Standard Level the figure was 80 per cent.

The average total score amongst all pupils was 33.5 points, an equivalent to just more than four A grades at A-level and an improvement on last year's average score of 33 points. The maximum score that an IB student can achieve is 45 points.

Anna-Sophie Scheidl achieved the highest results at Felsted with 40 points in total which, if related to UCAS entry points, can be equated to almost five-and-a-half A grades at A-level.

In all, 10 students at the independent school - which also A-levels to sixth form pupils - achieved an overall score of 35 points or better:

Anna-Sophie Scheidl from Germany achieved 40 points

Lena Sophie Koenig from Germany achieved 39 points

George Menne from Germany achieved 39 points

Ian Clark from Great Notley achieved 38 points

Stephanie Farr, from Sible Hedingham achieved 38 points

Clemens Berghoff, from Germany achieved 37 points

Liam Boshell from High Wycombe achieved 37 points

Benedict Schmidt, from Germany achieved 37 points

Bernhard Fohrmann, from Germany achieved 36 points

Matthew Savill, from Navestock achieved 35 points

Director of Studies at Felsted School, Dr John Shaw, said: "The students and staff have both worked very hard over the two year course to achieve these results.

"There are a number of very able students who have obtained excellent results. I am delighted that most IB Felstedians will be going on to their first choice university."

Headteacher, Dr Michael Walker, said: "Felsted aims to provide a breadth of education and opportunity focused on enhancing the individual talents of its pupils, and this has provided an excellent environment for the IB Programme to flourish.
