Graduates from the Australian International School (AIS) achieved 100% pass rate for the IB Diploma – the first time in the school’s history this has been achieved. The global average is around 88.8%.
A total of 89 AIS students – the largest graduating cohort in the school’s history – studied for IB exams. As well as an incredible 100% pass rate, the students’ average points total was 35, the second-highest in AIS history. The global average points’ total is 33.
As a result, many AIS students are now heading to the world’s leading universities. These include Hoang Kim Thu Do, Keun Woo PARK (David) and Phan Hoang Nhat Anh who all scored 44 out of 45 points, putting them in the top 1% of IB students worldwide.
In addition, an amazing 13% of students were awarded 40 points or more, also far above the global average.
The IB Diploma is the world’s leading pre-university course for 16-18 year olds. It offers a challenging academic programme but also aims to improve students’ personal development and leadership skills – qualities that universities look for.
Mark Beales, IB Diploma Coordinator, said: “These are another set of fantastic results. I am delighted that our students can now head off to their dream universities”.
“Our experienced and dedicated teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure these students achieve their full potential. In addition, the students showed great resilience when studying online during various lockdowns to complete their work. They fully deserve these excellent results.”
AIS, which opened in 2006, offers an international education for students aged from 18 months to 18 years. Its curriculum is based around IB’s Primary Years Programme (PYP), Cambridge IGCSEs and the IB Diploma. AIS also offers the only boarding facilities for international school students in Vietnam.
