ISL’s graduating class of 2018 lived up to all expectations this summer with a set of results to celebrate. With a pass rate of 96.6%, an average score of 34, and 15 students achieving 40 points or above, the school is very proud of all its students.

The IB Director General, Dr Siva Kumari, said: “In the year that the International Baccalaureate celebrates 50 years of delivering education for a better world, 165,752 students received their Diploma results in July. This year’s students achieved a global average diploma score of 29.78 points. More than 607,000 examination papers—the largest number since the introduction of the Diploma Programme in 1968—were processed in 75 languages. Over 13,000 examiners across the world worked together to establish accurate, internationally-benchmarked grading criteria across subjects, and ensure consistency throughout the evaluation process.

“I wholeheartedly congratulate the May 2018 graduates. They are to be highly commended for their hard work, their drive and commitment. Research suggests that an IB diploma is the best preparation for further education and for future careers. IB graduates show continued curiosity and critical thinking throughout their lives. These are the skills of the future, as both universities and employers attest. IB graduates are highly prepared to contribute to their own communities and, increasingly, to help find solutions to the broader challenges facing the world”.’
