British International School Ho Chi Minh City is incredibly proud of the IB Diploma Programme results awarded to the Graduating Class of 2023.
|BIS HCMC students achieve outstanding IBDP results, placing them among the best worldwide
The second-ever largest IBDP cohort of 107 students has surpassed all IBDP global averages. Once again, the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes of BIS HCMC students have been recognised with stunning academic results that place them among the very best worldwide.
With a truly impressive average point score of 36.6, the BIS HCMC class of 2023 achieved significantly higher than the global average of 30.2 points. Once again students at BIS HCMC retained an average overall points score of an incredible 6 points above the world average and have done so for several years, reflecting the consistency in quality across all disciplines.
Among the many successes, an outstanding 35 per cent of BIS HCMC students achieved a score of 40 points or more, an astonishing achievement given the United Kingdom average is 15.9 per cent.
Two BIS HCMC students achieved a perfect score of 45, falling in the top 1 per cent worldwide. Behind these truly impressive results are 107 incredibly hard-working and dedicated students experiencing their own personal journeys to success.
They are the culmination of not only the last two years of the IB Diploma Programme, but rather mark an important milestone as the latest BIS HCMC graduates from complete their school careers and take their first steps at the world’s best universities.
With hundreds of offers received from top 100 universities, it will be exciting to discover the final university and subject choices of these top scoring IBDP students in Vietnam over the coming days and weeks.
The Class of 2023 have in many ways faced the most challenging set of circumstances of any recent cohort affected by the the pandemic, with the first 25 per cent of their IBDP journey conducted online yet still with the challenge of a full unamended IBDP curriculum and examination series to meet.
These circumstances have meant each student has had to show even greater perseverance, adaptability and commitment to overcome obstacles, and have done so successfully with the support of parents, teachers, and each other.
Having achieved these incredible results, it is undoubtedly that these exceptional BIS HCMC students will now go on to succeed in their chosen paths, and we look forward to hearing of their ongoing successes.
Anthony Rowlands, principal of BIS HCMC said, “The class of 2023 have excelled themselves with this outstanding set of IB results, and we are very proud of every one of them. They have been a wonderful cohort of students who have always acted with integrity, showing great perseverance and resilience in achieving these excellent outcomes.”
“A great deal of credit must go to their parents and to our staff for guiding them thoughtfully, and with great care, throughout their time at BIS HCMC. My sincere congratulations to the class of 2023. The Class of 2023 shared a very special Graduation ceremony at the Park Hyatt Saigon on May 20,” he said.
