GIS had a 100 per cent pass rate for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, the world’s top course for 18-year-olds. It means the IB graduates are now looking forward to starting degrees at some of the world’s top universities.

As well as having an unbeatable 100 per cent pass rate, the students also achieved a points’ average of more than 34 out of 45, well above the global average.

Among the star students was Hui Eun, who scored 42 points – the highest-ever total by a female student at GIS. Khing was awarded 41 points, the highest score ever by a Thai student in GIS history.

Another notable achievement was Jason’s score of 38, which included the maximum three bonus points for his A-grade Extended Essay and his work on Theory of Knowledge.

This year the graduates will be heading to various leading universities, including the University of Warwick (ranked 6th best university in the UK by The Times), Northumbria University in the UK and Carelton University in Canada, while others can choose from The University of Hong Kong, Imperial College London (ranked 3rd best in the UK by The Times) and University College London.

GIS is the most-experienced IB school in the region, having offered the course since 1998. IB is a challenging programme that involves students studying a range of six subjects across different disciplines. Students also have to do creative, active and service-minded work to achieve the diploma. This year 150,000 students worldwide completed the IB or career-related programmes.

IB Coordinator Mark Beales said: “These spectacular results again confirm why GIS is the school of choice for IB. The dedicated teaching staff and highly-motivated students are a perfect combination for success. We wish our IB graduates all the best as they start life at some of the world’s leading universities.”
