Consistently outstanding results have always been the mainstay of the British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) and the 2018/19 academic year proved this once again. Results for the IGCSE exams saw 75% of students achieve A*-A (UK average: 22%) with 57% gaining an A* or the equivalent numerical grade. 91% achieved A*-B and 43% of the new numerically graded IGCSEs were graded a 9, which is an A** equivalent and awarded to the top 3% of global entries.

BSKL A Level results were also amongst the very best in the region 82% of all grades achieved being A*-B and 61% gaining A*-A (UK average: 25%). The majority of the school’s A Level students gained entry into their first-choice universities, and these included Oxford, King’s College, UCL and Yale-NUS College.

The basis of academic success
While BSKL prides itself on its academic success, this is a school that is aware of the many aspects that contribute to this. Well-qualified teaching staff who go the extra mile for their students, cultivating relationships with parents to create a supportive community, constantly monitoring progress and encouraging scholastic success – these are some of the indispensable advantages BSKL offers.

Pastoral care is also an important attribute and BSKL makes every endeavour to encourage a student’s personal development beyond the classroom. This includes interesting extra-curricular activities, sports, music, drama, community projects, participating in awards and House events. These pursuits are aimed at instilling confidence, enhancing social skills and ensuring students become well-rounded individuals.

What characteristics form high performing students?
Excellent results are always a combination of many factors, and hard work is always top of the list and is the key to a student’s success and gaining top marks. Exam success is also based on being organised and this is where BSKL steps up and focuses on teaching organisation to maximise academic return. A positive atmosphere, resilience, the ability to learn from constructive criticism and mutual respect are also part of the school’s winning formula.
