With an evolving curriculum and constant endeavor in all areas, the comparative analysis shows that results have improved to a great extent. The table below shows the comparative analysis of the results of the class of 2016 and 2017.
The key highlights of the results this year:
- As evident from Table 1, the number of students getting scores in the higher ranges is significantly more as compared to last year. And obviously, our highest scores have jumped.
- The average score of students has increased from 31 to 33.6
- The actual grades of students have been significantly closer to the predicted grades as compared to the prediction last year. The error in the prediction of the grades last year was 13% which has now reduced to 0.4%.
- Besides the improvement in subject grades, students have also shown better results in the TOK and Extended Essay which are the core components of the Diploma Program.
- Many of our students (about 30 out of 40) have already got confirmed admissions in colleges of their choice based on the predicted grades given in their university applications. For the remaining, these results should ensure that they get admissions in their preferred colleges. You can see the list of confirmed placements (as on date) of the students here (some students who haven’t yet made their final selection of college may not be on the list as yet).

This was our third batch which has completed their IGCSE examinations and over the past 3 years, the results have been consistently good with the majority of students getting the more rigorous and prestigious ICE certificate.
While more than 80% of our students have chosen to continue with the Diploma Program at Fountainhead School, the students who have left, have also got admissions in schools of their choice in Surat, India and abroad.
In many ways, Fountainhead School reached a major milestone when the results of the DP Class of 2016 (first batch) were released. Of 38 students in the class, one of them appeared for the AS/A levels in March (the only and the last candidate from Fountainhead to do so). 2 students had registered for the DP Course from the beginning – which means that they were not attempting the full diploma.
Of the remaining 35 students, 21 students were awarded the Diploma, while 14 students got Diploma course results, which means that they didn’t meet all the nine requirements of getting the full diploma. 12 of these students missed out on getting the Diploma by 1-grade point.
On the other hand, our highest score is 39. Among those students who’ve got the Diploma, the average score is 31 points, higher than the world average, which is 30.07. In every subject where we had more than 10 students, our students have secured the two highest grades in that subject pointing to the fact that those students who make an effort can do really well.
