Congratulations to our academic achievements 2020

Congratulations to our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) 2020 cohort

Students from the Australian International School (AIS) are today celebrating one of its best-ever IB Diploma results.

Among the school’s top-achievers was Anh-Andrew Tran, who achieved an incredible 43 out of 45 points, and Hyeonjun Kim, who was awarded 42 points. Both are now set to attend word-class universities in Australia and South Korea.

IB cancelled the final exams for May 2020 due to the Coronavirus. It used coursework, predicted grades and other data to calculate final grades. This led to complaints from many schools worldwide that the results did not reflect students’ abilities. IB has now decided to re-calculate the grades and issued new results that are said to better reflect students’ work.

AIS Executive Principal Davina McCarthy said: “We are delighted that the students have now been given the results that we feel they deserve. I am pleased to hear that many now have the grades they require to attend the world’s leading universities. These results reflect the students’ hard work and also the hard work and dedication of our teachers.”

The IB Diploma is the world’s largest and most-respected pre-university course for 16-18 year old’s.
