Students from Garden International School (GIS) are preparing for some of the world’s leading universities after achieving some spectacular IB Diploma results.
For the second-year running, GIS achieved a remarkable 100 percent pass rate for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. The IB Diploma is the world’s top course for 16-18 year olds, and GIS is the region’s most established IB school.
This year’s IB Diploma students not only all passed, but there were some outstanding performances. With an average points score of 33 points, GIS was well above the global average of just under 30 points.
Among the star students was Jun Beom, who achieved a near-perfect score of 44 out of 45 points. This places him in the top 1 percent of students worldwide. His achievement is more incredible because when he first joined GIS 7 years ago he could barely speak any English.
GIS students are now planning to head to some of the world’s leading universities in the US, the United Kingdom, Europe, Singapore and Hong Kong.
IB Coordinator Mark Beales said, “These results again show the academic excellence that GIS achieves on a regular basis, with results far above the global average. Being the most-experienced IB school in the region allows us to also pass on our experience and support to students as they prepare for higher education.”
GIS Principal Dinah Hawtree added, “We are all delighted to see such great results from students; this is a reflection of the hard work that has been put in by both students and their teachers. IB really does give the best possible preparation for university life and I wish all these students the best in their future studies.”
