Exam Results

IB Results: Congratulations to the Class of 2019!

National and higher education authorities all over the world recognise the International Baccalaureate Diploma as an excellent pre-University course.

In May 2019, some 166,278 students from 144 countries attempted the Diploma, 52 of them from LIS. The IB holds a second examination session in November each year, for students in the southern hemisphere and those in the north who wish to re-take subjects.

Our LIS graduates of 2019 have achieved the best IB results in the history of the school.

43 members of this class attempted the full IB Diploma in May this year: 42 of them were successful.

Their average points score was 35.0. The world average is usually around the 30-point mark.

No fewer than eight of our graduates, 19% of the group, achieved outstanding scores of 40 points or more. Worldwide, some 9% of candidates usually reach this level. Two members of the class achieved a faultless maximum score of 45 points: both these students have also won places at the University of Oxford.

Candidates obtain scores from 7 > 1 in six subjects, with 4 as the passing grade:

7: Excellent; 6: Very Good; 5: Good; 4: Satisfactory; 3: Mediocre 2 Poor 1: Very poor

In addition, up to 3 bonus points may be gained for the combined performance on the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge.

The highest possible score is therefore 45 points, with 24 being the minimum total required for the award of a Diploma.

IGCSE Results

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education, IGCSE, is the international version of the 16+ exam taken by students in secondary schools of all kinds, throughout the United Kingdom.

IGCSE courses, designed and examined by the University of Cambridge, are taken by students throughout the English-speaking world and in many international and bilingual schools beyond it. At LIS, students follow a two-year IGCSE course during Grades 9 and 10.

Candidates obtain grades from A* down to G in each subject.

Grades A* to C are considered passing grades.

To have their IGCSE performance recognised in Germany as the equivalent of the Realschulabschluss, students must obtain a pass grade (C or above) in the five core subjects. These are German, another Language, Mathematics, a Science, and a Humanities subject (i.e. Geography, History).
