Students from The Regent’s School Pattaya are celebrating following the announcement this week of the International Baccalaureate Diploma results for 2013. Their excellent results have ensured that this year’s graduates will soon be taking up places on degree courses at some of the finest universities around the world.
The IB is considered the gold standard of pre-university qualifications, highly regarded by university admissions tutors around the world. Currently there are more than 1 million IB students at over 3,600 schools in 145 countries across the world.
Three of the sixty students from The Regent’s who received IB results last week.
The average score for the sixty students from The Regent’s School who sat this year’s examinations was 32 points, well above the worldwide average of 29.8. Four of the school’s students scored 40 points, which is considered the benchmark of an outstanding performance.
Their IB Diploma results are this generation’s passport to some of the finest universities in the world. The Regent’s graduates will now go on to study a wide range of subjects at degree level. The sciences are particularly well represented this year, with students securing places to study Neuro-engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Molecular Genetics, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Psychology, Physics and Computer Science. Economics and finance degrees have also proved popular, whilst two of our graduates have been accepted to study Music at university.
Principal Mike Walton commented, “Congratulations to the Regent’s graduates for their IB Diploma results. The IB Diploma is a rigorous and challenging qualification, but one which is ideally suited to helping young adults to gain places at leading universities around the world. As a consequence of their IB grades, our students will be moving on to degree courses at a wide range of leading universities, from University College London to the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology to the University of British Columbia. I offer them all my best wishes for the future and hope they will stay in touch with all their friends and teachers here at The Regent’s School Pattaya.”
