An Oxford-bound Westminster Academy student has achieved a stellar score in her International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).
With an average grade of 33 points, IBDP students at the academy once again surpassed the world average (29.95) this year.
Top achiever Nevena Slavova achieved 43 points out of a possible 45, which earned her a place to read geography at the University of Oxford.
“I am mostly feeling relieved,” she said. “I knew that I had prepared well and I am now really excited about going to university.”
Classmate Tohin Munshi also achieved an outstanding set of results, scoring a total of 42 points and securing a place at the University of Cambridge to read history, while Momoko Kawase-Kennedy will be starting her undergraduate degree in English at Oxford in September.
