Doha College sets new standards with best (I)GCSE results in Qatar
Doha College, one of the longest-standing international schools in Qatar, has just announced exceptional examination results, with those recorded for (I)GCSE being the best in the school’s 39-year history, and indeed in the whole of Qatar.
With over half of all papers marked at A*, 73.4% at A*- A and 97.2 % at A* - C, Doha College (I)GCSE students exceeded all expectations. The results have catapulted Doha College, yet again, into the space of the highest achieving British schools worldwide.
A delighted Dr Sommer, Principal of Doha College, stated: “Very much in the spirit of High Performance Learning, Doha College has again been true to its ethos. The examination results at (I)GCSE surpassed all expectations, and it is truly phenomenal for a school of quite a mixed ability intake like Doha College. At A2 Level and AS Level, we matched past performances, and our students have done exceedingly well. My thanks go to staff for the unfailing support and guidance they give to students daily, and not to forget the parents. High achievement in academic work is only possible if we work in tandem with parents to soak up the essence and the ethos of the school. Congratulations to the entire community of Doha College, our students have yet again done us all proud.”
Doha College was the first school in the world to be accredited as a High Performance Learning school and is it often spoken of as the flag-bearer of this educational approach. The results were equally impressive in the Primary school, where the Year 1 phonics assessments, for example, showed a year-on-year increase, and well above the UK average.
The highest achiever in the (I)GCSE examination was Waleed Nasr, who recorded perfect scores in 10 subjects (A*s and 9s).
The best AS performance came from Antonia Heidel, who achieved five As (biology, English Literature, German, mathematics and physics).
Sara Mohamed was the highest achieving student at A2, having managed the same feat the year before in her AS examination; a few months earlier, she was named Doha College’s “2019 Outstanding Student,” and received this recognition at the school’s Awards Ceremony held in June.
Sara is aiming to become a researcher in the medical field, capable of spreading new ideas and discoveries around the world.
