IB Excellence

11 November 2013

This is a very important time of year for our Year 13 students as they complete their University applications and prepare for interviews. We are delighted with their progress with the International Baccalaureate Diploma, a demanding course through which students can only succeed with great dedication.

We have recently received some excellent feedback from the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organisation) regarding last year’s results. The IBO measures the amount of progress each student makes, and I am delighted to be able to inform you thatthe British International School Shanghai, Pudong, has been recognised in the top 5% of all IB Diploma schools across the world.Students at our school are achieving almost a grade better than international expectations in every one of their subjects.

Feedback like this is hugely encouraging in knowing that the way the students, teachers and parents work together in our community is having a great impact on student outcomes. Overall figures however, are never more than important than the specific achievement of individual students. We are looking forward to fantastic success in 2014:

Out of 55 students, 25 (45%) are applying to the top 30 Universities in the world. There are 6 students applying to Oxford or Cambridge, whilst others are applying to Universities such as MIT, Princeton, and Stanford in the United States, and the LSE and the Royal Academy of Music in the UK.

Our Year 13 students are nearing the end of their examination courses. Other students will shortly be making choices for theirs. Please note the dates for two very important information evenings:

    •    Senior School Open Evening – Tuesday 12 November

    •    IGCSE Open Evening – Tuesday 19 November

We look forward to welcoming students and parents to these events as they begin their journey towards the successes that our current Senior students are achieving.
