Congratulations Class of 2018 on your IB Diploma results
The International Baccalaureate (IB) announced its May 2018 Diploma Programme (DP) results on 5 July. More than 150,000 secondary, or high school, IB Diploma students across the globe received their results, including 572 graduating students in the UWCSEA Class of 2018.
UWCSEA’s IBDP results show that our students have done extremely well, with an average score of 36 points. This compares favourably with the worldwide average of 29.78. The pass rate at the College was 97.6%, as compared with the worldwide pass rate of 78.4% (2017 figure). You can see a breakdown of top level results for the College, and by each campus, below.
The success of our students has resulted in the majority being offered places at universities around the world. Our graduates will take up studies in 'best fit' courses in leading institutions. A number of students will do so after taking part in a Gap Year (a chance to put UWC values into action) or after completing their National Service commitment.
UWCSEA has one of the largest cohorts sitting the IB Diploma at an international school anywhere in the world. In Singapore, over 1,350 students sit the IB Diploma examinations each May. The UWCSEA Class of 2018 join an IB global community of more than 1.7 million lifelong learners. (Source: IB Diploma Programme Statistical Bulletin, May 2017)
We wish them all the best for the future.
The IB Diploma is an internationally recognised two-year pre-university course. To gain a full Diploma, students are required to study of a minimum of six subjects (at least three at ‘Higher Level’) as well as complete the ‘DP Core’. The Core aims to broaden the students’ educational experience and provide opportunities for them to apply their knowledge and develop their skills, and is made up of three elements: a Theory of Knowledge course, a 4,000 word Extended Essay on a topic of their choice and completion of an individual CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) project.
Dover Campus has been authorised to offer the IB Diploma since 1977; the East Campus has been authorised since welcoming the first IB Diploma intake in 2012.
