Scarlett is now the joint-highest achiever of all time at Truro College. She had previously seen a post on social media about an earlier IB top scorer at Truro College, which had influenced her to choose the course. Now she joins them as a high achiever herself, to inspire others.
Scarlett said: “When I found out I was over the moon, it was total excitement. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. I’ll be smiling for a week.
“All my lecturers have been really inspiring, if you want to carry on with a lot of subjects, I’d absolutely recommend it. It teaches you so much beyond just your academic studies, including really valuable life skills.
“My IB extended essay was on Global Politics, on the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya. I have never felt so inspired by subjects as I have at College, particularly Global Politics.
“I chose Truro College because I came to an open evening and knew it was where I wanted to be. It was so organised. I was feeling really inspired, it’s a wonderful environment to learn in. Seeing the successful past track record of the IB also inspired me. I’ve loved every second of the IB and met some really amazing people, with amazing lecturers.”
