Maria Patouna, Class of 2020, IB Diploma Programme
Congratulations to Maria Patouna, our top student in the CGS IB Diploma Programme with an impressive 44 points out of 45, a result that less than 1% of IB DP students receive worldwide.
Maria has been accepted at UCL to pursue a degree in Politics and International Relations this fall. Recognised as one of the leading Departments of Politics, not just in the UK but globally, the focus is on world-leading research, innovative education addressing the policy making community in Britain and internationally.
In addition to her exceptional academic performance, Maria has been one of our most engaged Model UN members which certainly contributed to her study choice. Maria was also admitted to other top universities including King’s College London, the University of Leiden and the University of Maastricht but decided that UCL was the best choice!
The entire CGS community wishes Maria every success on her new journey! Maria you have made us most proud!
