Northbridge International School Cambodia students have once again achieved strong results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for the 2017/18 academic school year. Northbridge’s average score this year is more than three points higher than the IB global average, widening the gap between ourselves and other IB schools around the world.
“We are incredibly proud of our graduating students this year. Their exceptional IB results build on last year's best ever scores, and reflect the hard work put in by students and staff alike,” said Northbridge Principal Mr Richard Vaughan.
"Our students' average score in the IB Diploma was 33, significantly ahead of the 2018 global average of 29.78 points. In addition, 10 percent of our students achieved 40 points and above," added Mr Richard. "This is the level of attainment required to gain admission to the world's elite universities, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford."
Andy Puttock, Education Director of Nord Anglia Education, said, “I am delighted by the outstanding IB diploma results achieved by our students this year. This excellent outcome is not only due to their efforts but also the incredible hard work put in by the school’s teachers throughout the year to ensure our children experience the best in learning.”
He added, “For eight consecutive years, students at Nord Anglia Education schools have exceeded the IB Diploma global average score, achieving a pass rate of 94% compared to the global average of 78.4%. This is a testament to our Be Ambitious philosophy, highlighting that there is no limit to what our students can achieve.”
