ICS Head of School, Rose Threlfall, was delighted to today announce this year’s IB Diploma results.
The Class of 2018 achieved a 100% pass rate with a mean score of 33 points, maintaining the schools’ 34-point average over four years, a result well above the international norm.
Speaking of the results, Rose said, “It is impossible to thank the faculty enough for their outstanding contribution to the success of our students and the students themselves who now move confidently on to competitive universities around the world including the UK, knowing that they have successfully navigated what is perhaps the most rigorous and all-encompassing pre-university qualification that exists”.
Rose, who meets all prospective Diploma parents and students who apply to the School, noted that within the last couple of years, she has begun to meet more and more Diploma graduates who are now bringing their own children back to ICS to experience an international education.
Commenting on the trend, Rose said, “There is no better validation than sitting opposite a parent who themselves has completed the Diploma and wants their own child to experience the same. I am often absolutely captivated by the journey of these parents’ post-Diploma and the value they place on it as a formative and life changing experience’.
The results were published on the 6th July 2018, some 5 weeks ahead of A-level results.
2018 marks the 50th birthday of the IB Diploma programme and this year, 165,752 students around the world received their results. They join 1.7 million Diploma graduates who hold this cherished qualification.
Congratulations to all of our wonderful students, we wish you well with your future studies!
