2017 Global key findings from research on the impact of the IB Diploma Programme

04 January 2018

The International Baccalaureate has recently released its 2017 global key findings on the impacts and outcomes of all four IB programmes. As an IB Diploma school, Compass International School would like to provide a summary of recent key findings regarding the IB Diploma programme. Full reports on the findings below plus other relevant information can be found at

Creativity, Activity, Service

Over the course of 2016 and 2017, researchers investigated the impact of creativity, activity, service (CAS) by exploring the perceptions of those involved in the programme, past and present. Coordinators, students and alumni surveyed from across the world believed that CAS helps students to become better at “taking on new challenges”, “learning to persevere” and “developing better interpersonal skills.”

University outcomes- Turkey

In Turkey, researchers investigated the university outcomes of DP (Diploma programme) graduates and their non-IB peers at Turkish universi­ties. Compared to non-IB students, DP graduates generally had higher subject grades (in all subject areas examined), overall grade point averages and graduation rates. DP alumni also reported feeling well-prepared for university studies, particularly with regard to English language skills and academic skills, such as writing and managing indepen­dent work.

Higher Education outcomes- United Kingdom

To examine the higher education outcomes of students in the United Kingdom, researchers explored the university enrollment and achievement of statistically matched groups of DP and A level students. DP students were significantly more likely than their A level counterparts to attend a top 20 university in the UK and to receive a first‑class honours degree. Additionally, DP graduates were somewhat more likely to enroll in further education after completing university.
