BSKL Receives Exceptional (I)GCSE Results

Students and staff at The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) are yet again celebrating another year of exam success.
Monday, September 4, 2017
Students at The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) exceeded their targets to achieve 82% at grade A/A* with 58% at A* and 94% achieving grades A*-B; results that are comparable with the very top independent schools in the UK and are unprecedented in Malaysia. In a year where many schools in the UK and internationally have seen a decrease in GCSE results, it is a reflection of the hard work and determination of the students and staff at BSKL that we have seen a substantial increase on last year's results.

Particular highlights were Modern Foreign Languages with 95% of grades at A/A*, Maths with 90% of grades at A/A* and ICT and Biology also with 90% of grades at A/A*. Headteacher, Mrs Janet Brock explains, "The incredible success of this year's cohort is as a result of our focus on each student as an individual and it is this student-centred approach that has allowed us to facilitate the academic success of every student."

Alongside traditionally strong subjects, students also performed exceptionally well in English Literature and Music with 83% of grades at A/A* and Graphic Design and Drama with 80% of grades at A/A*. Academic Deputy Head, Ms Pauline Gradden, said, "Over the past few years, we have strived to develop a culture of learning rather than one of performance. This learning culture has allowed students to take risks and progress in a wide range of subject areas."

Adding her congratulations to the students and their teachers, Mrs Basman Zora, the new Head of Secondary commented, "These wonderful results reflect an excellent approach to learning from the students and the hard work of an experienced teaching staff. I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to lead this exceptional school at an exciting time in its development. I'd like to congratulate the students and wish them every success in their future studies."
