Doha College students are celebrating an outstanding set of examination results – another record in its 38-year history.  These results place the college in the very elite of British schools throughout the world and highlight the quality of our students and staff as well as the excellent learning opportunities in Qatar.

The results of the (i)GCSE examinations boasted an incredible 99.2% of the students achieving five or more A*- C marks. 61% of the grades were A* or A’s, and nearly a third of all grades were straight A*s. These scores open practically unrestricted choices of future careers for the Doha College students, who will be well equipped to take on diverse third level education courses in all corners of the world.
