SCIS's outstanding IB results cap successful year
The year 2018 was another outstanding year for International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme students at Shanghai Community International School. Seventy students in the Class of 2018 were entered for the full IB Diploma and our pass rate was a remarkable 89 percent. Unlike many IB schools around the world, SCIS does not pre-select students for entry into the IB Diploma but encourages all students to grasp the opportunities provided by this challenging program.
The SCIS average score for those who achieved the full IB diploma was 33.4, which is well above the world average of 29.78 points. Amongst our successful graduates was Hye Jun (Julie) Kang who scored a perfect 45 points, the maximum available! Only the top 0.2 percent of the 165,752 students who sat the May 2018 exams were able to achieve this amazing feat. SCIS is extremely proud of Julie.
Our students received offers from top universities worldwide, including the University of Toronto, Imperial College London, King’s College London, Hong Kong University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Kyoto University, McGill University, University of Melbourne, UCLA and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
SCIS students have achieved tremendous results in their external examinations while still participating in a wide range of sports, drama productions, musical events and many other activities, including local and international service trips. SCIS looks forward to hearing from our graduates as they spread our community across the globe.
