Singapore students outperformed their global counterparts in last year’s International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma exams.
97.99 per cent of Singapore students who took the exams last November passed, compared with the global passing rate of 68.73 per cent.
Singapore students also scored higher on the average. They scored a mean of 38.49 points against a global mean of 28.58 points.
Students from eight schools – including Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), the School of the Arts (Sota), St Joseph’s Institution and Hwa Chong International School (HCIS) – received their results last Friday.
IB chief assessment officer Paula Wilcock congratulated students on receiving their results.
