KUCHING: Lodge International School achieved a record-breaking result in the Cambridge International A-Level Exams taken in May and June.
Nine students scored straight A*s for four subjects and in total, close to 35 percent of the cohort attained straight A/A*.
Head of A-Levels, Frances Tan, said the results were a testament to the efforts put in by the students and teachers despite challenging circumstances.
“We would also like to extend our gratitude to the parents, who have given us their support and trust during the challenging time and we are very proud of their achievements.”
Meanwhile, principal Markus Gatuman offered his heartiest congratulations to the students.
“We at Lodge International School have done our best during this challenging time to support our students in all areas, and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”
Markus added that for science subjects, Lodge achieved outstanding results with a huge leap in the percentage of A/A* grades.
“Biology and Physics both had over 80 percent A/A*s, which is an increase of more than 20 percent from last year, while Chemistry students also showed improvement, with close to three-quarters of the cohort achieving A/A*.
“Despite Advanced Mathematics being a highly specialised subject, over 70 percent of the students achieved A/A*, and Mathematics students also improved, with over half receiving A/A*.
“Humanities subjects also performed well, with over a third of students achieving A/A* in English Language, Economics, Business, and Psychology, with History and Geography maintaining a 100 percent pass rate.”
The school also has a holistic programme, including student involvement in extracurricular activities such as the globally recognised ‘International Award’, and an extensive alumni network to connect students to internships of all kinds from law to multimedia.
In addition, Lodge will be having an Information Session for A-Level Programme on Aug 21 at 2pm via Zoom.
