Congratulations to the Class of 2015 on your outstanding IB Diploma results
The International Baccalaureate (IB) announced its May 2015 Diploma Programme (DP) results on 6 July. 141,831 secondary, or high school, Diploma students across the globe received their results, including 498 graduating students at UWCSEA in the Class of 2015.
Our Diploma results show that our students have done extremely well, with an average score of 36.2 points (36.5 on Dover, 35.9 on East). This compares favourably with the worldwide average of 29.9, and the Asia pacific average of 33.2. The pass rate at the College was 98.4%, as compared with a worldwide pass rate of 79% (2014 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 study in 'best fit' courses in leading institutions. A number of students will do this after taking part in the UWCSEA Gap year programme (a chance to put UWCSEA values into action around the region) or after completing their National Service commitment.
The graduation ceremonies in May confirmed that the UWCSEA Class of 2015 are an outstanding group of young people. They joined a community of more than 1,300,000 DP graduates in over 140 countries across the world.
We wish them all the best for the future.
The IB Diploma is an internationally recognised two-year course, requiring the study of a minimum of six subjects (at least three of which need to be at ‘Higher Level’) as well as completion of 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, the Extended Essay and completion of their CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) project.
Dover Campus has been authorized to offer the IB Diploma since 1977; the East Campus received authorization in 2012.
For more information, please see our Academic results page. Statistics will updated to reflect any changes in Term 1. The IGCSE results will be released later in the year.
