Wait is Over For Dubai Students as General Certificate of Secondary Education Results Come In

DUBAI Weeks of revising and anxiously waiting came to an end on Thursday as students received their General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) results.



Erika Okada, 16, from Japan, scored six A-stars in history, geography, maths, science, Japanese and music. The Dubai British School pupil also had As in business and economics, French, additional science, English literature and English language.



I was trying my best not to think about results day but its more a case of relief that I did so well, she said. I did a lot of revision and was in the library pretty much on a daily basis trying to prepare. I think I went through a period of going into school for 13 days straight.



She is planning to stay on at Dubai British School in The Springs for A-levels in economics, maths, further maths and geography. I really enjoy economics and my aim is to do that at

university

, she said.



Ben Bristow, 16, from the

UK

, was among the highest achievers after receiving nine A-Star in maths, history, music, French, ICT, English language and science, additional science and further science as well as an A in English literature.



I am really pleased with the results and so happy, he said. I worked really had for these grades and I am so happy that it has paid off in the end. He is now determined to enjoy the period before school restarts in a couple of weeks.



Overall, it was an exceptional performance for the 67 pupils who took GCSEs at the school, which outperformed UK national averages.



The full set of results is the best in the schools history, with 97 per cent of our students achieving at least 5 A-Star to C grades (including maths and English), against historical UK national averages of 71 per cent, said outgoing secondary school head Tanya Drew.



Thirty-one per cent of students achieved at least five A-Star grades compared with a UK average of 21 per cent. I am delighted to be departing the school with such exceptional results and its a tribute to the hard work of pupils and staff, said Ms Drew.



Of the results this year, 48 per cent were A-Star or As compared with 39 per cent last year. A-Star and B grades were up 8 per cent to 78 per cent compared with last year and 97 per cent achieved A-Star to C grades compared with 96 per cent in 2014.



Jumeirah College students achieved 59.6 per cent A-Star and A grades with 30 students gaining straight A-Star or A grades in all subjects and Wellington International School with 46.6 per cent A-Star and A grades.
