Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium schools organisation, today announced a 94% pass rate for its 2016/17 International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) results, significantly higher than the IB global average of 79%*. The pass rate is a record high for Nord Anglia and a result of the organisation’s Be Ambitious philosophy, personalised approach to learning and fantastic teaching.
For seven consecutive years, Nord Anglia students have significantly exceeded the IB Diploma global average score while at the same time tripling the number of International Baccalaureate students from 200 to nearly 700, making Nord Anglia one of the world’s largest global providers of the IB Diploma. Four Nord Anglia students received the top honour of the perfect 45 out of 45 score. Only 218 students worldwide have managed to secure a perfect score this year.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer of Nord Anglia Education said, “We are extremely proud of our students’ IB results this year. Our remarkable 94% pass rate is a testament to our Be Ambitious philosophy and the belief that there is no limit to what every student can achieve. Congratulations to all our students on their terrific IB Diploma results.”
