IGCSE Examination Results

The IGCSE examination results at Repton Dubai are outstanding. The progress that students make in their time here shows the hard work and dedication shown by students and staff.

After an extensive and rigorous assessment and grading schedule in Term 3, the class of 2020 had 1002 examination entries, with 105 students entered for the examinations. 100% of students achieving 9 – 4​ (A* – C).

The key statistics and grades were as follows:

39% of grades were 9/8 (A*)​

58% of grades were 9 – 7 (A*-A)​

89% of grades were 9 – 5 (A* – B)​ – the bench mark for outstanding schools in Dubai is 75%, as set by the KHDA.

We are delighted that one of our students achieved the absolute perfect score with 11 x 9’s​, another one achieved 10 x 9’s and 1 x 8​, equivalent to 11 A* and several achieved the equivalent of all A*-A.

As a school we are extremely pleased with these results and can genuinely say that these grades are a true reflection of the hard work by both staff and students in what has been a very challenging and unusual year in Education.
