The results of the 2015 IB Diploma examinations, which this year were taken by almost 142,000 students worldwide, were released on Monday 6 July. We are delighted to announce that Regents’ students maintained the school’s tradition of achieving results markedly above the global average.
The 41 students who entered the full Diploma scored on average 33.5 points out of a maximum of 45: the school’s fourth year-on-year increase and significantly above the global average of 29.88.
It is an excellent performance by the group as a whole, but 2015 will surely be remembered as the year when Regents reinforced its credentials as a school which supports and motivates students to reach the highest academic levels. Five students - more than in any other single year – achieved the sought-after score of 40 points, recognised worldwide as the benchmark of an outstanding individual performance.
Furthermore, one Regents’ student – Beatrice Chawalitnititham – scored a remarkable 44 points, placing her amongst the respected ranks of those who have truly excelled in the Diploma since it was founded in 1968.
Head of IB, Rachel Batty, who joined the school in September 2014 to guide students to success in the Diploma, applauded the efforts of all the students – and also the teachers who have contributed to this year’s results.
“This year’s students really have shown what can be achieved when you combine hard work, motivation, passion for a subject and inspirational teaching.”
“On the students’ behalf, I would like to thank our teachers, each of whom is a specialist in their subject. And nor do I restrict that thanks to the Secondary School teachers: Beatrice’s remarkable score of 44 points is the results of 16 years’ continuous education at Regents – she joined in Pre-Nursery! So thank you to the generations of Early Years and Primary School teachers, too.”
