Celebrating academic excellence in Cambridge exams

ACG Tauranga are thrilled with their Cambridge International results after students received a perfect pass rate in their inaugural A Level exams.

Tauranga’s overall Cambridge pass rates for 2019 show an incredibly high level of achievement across the senior school.

  • A Level: 100%
  • AS Level: 90%
  • IGCSE: 94%

As the number of Cambridge International students continues to grow around the world, it is becoming ever more challenging to achieve top outcomes. For such a young school to receive a 100% pass rate in all A Level subjects was a really exceptional result, especially when considering the 2019 students were the first ever ACG Tauranga cohort to sit the examinations.

Student success at AS Level was also a cause for delight, with a significant increase in the quality of grades achieved.

Additionally, at IGCSE Level, 30% of papers received an A grade (80% or better) which looks sure to solidify the school’s academic reputation over the coming years.

With their current academic achievements, ACG Tauranga’s pass rates now rival those of other top schools. For example, their pass rates identically mirror those from ACG sister school, ACG Parnell College, which is recognised as the top academic school in Auckland. In this context, these results are a true testament to not only ACG Tauranga’s dedicated, hardworking staff, but also to their highly motivated students and their extremely supportive families.

“ACG Tauranga is an incredible community, says Principal, Thea Kilian. “We are clear about who we are and what matters to us most; the well-being and holistic education of our students. We care deeply, about every student every day, ensuring they have every opportunity to achieve their own personal success. It is both rewarding and humbling to see our student stand tall, proud of their achievements and ready to take their next steps.”
