Perfect score for Lewis High achiever: Former Kristin School student Lewis Fry got a perfect score in his International Baccalaureate exams. Photo: BEN WATSON By SARAH CODDINGTON Lewis Fry got one of the highest marks in the world when he sat his year 13 exams. The former Kristin School student got the maximum poss- ible total of 45 points in his International Baccalaureate diploma. Only two in every 1000 students who sit the exam achieve such results. The Takapuna resident stud- ied economics, English, chemis- try, mathematics, physics, Spanish and theory of know- ledge. He achieved a total of 42 points in these subjects. He wrote two 4000-word essays to bring his mark to 45. Lewis managed to put in hours of study as well as taking on the role of head boy in his final school year. He was named joint dux with student George Mason. Lewis has always strived to achieve his best. His school records have been almost per- fect from day one. Once he gotaBinyear 8 physical education and was somewhat disappointed. The 18-year-old will soon be leaving for Monash University in Melbourne to study medicine on a scholarship. The scholarship will cover all of his living costs and tertiary fees. Lewis decided he wanted to become a doctor after he went on a school trip to Nepal and saw young orphans in need of medical assistance. His father Robert is a doctor and he says although he has helped him to think about becoming a doctor it was ultimately his own decision. Classmate Cathy Zhang and Michael Shafer also achieved outstanding success in gaining the second highest possible dip- loma score of 44 points. In total, 16 Kristin students scored 40 or more points, placing them in the top five percent of IB students world- wide. The school offers both NCEA and IB to its senior students and about 60 percent opt to study IB. Kristin School was the first school in New Zealand to be accredited to offer IB since many other independent schools have introduced the qualification. Students are assessed and examined in six subject areas. Each subjects is scored on a scale of one to seven and has a bonus point system.
