Primary Results 2019

At the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City our aim is to provide our primary school children with the academic knowledge and practical skills they need to become successful life-long learners. Our blend of the English National Curriculum and International Primary Curriculum helps to cultivate exploration, intellectual curiosity, creativity and strong values in our primary children. Once again, BIS HCMC students achieved higher than the expected in both English and Maths for the 2018-19 academic year, out-performing other International Schools worldwide and national standards in the UK. 

  • Primary Results 2019 | BIS HCMC

In 2016 we began a review of the primary curriculum and assessment procedures here at BIS HCMC.  From 2017 the new attainment and progress structure was implemented with specific Age Related Expectations (AREs) tailored to a BIS student.  These AREs are particularly challenging to suit ­the high levels of ability of students at BIS HCMC.  Alongside the AREs, students sit the international recognised GL Assessments, which provide a standardised assessment score (SAS).  This standardised assessment score confirms the high attainment that BIS students continuously achieve when compared against worldwide standards.

Standardised Assessment Score Comparison

The expected SAS score is 100 for each year group. BIS students achieved higher than the expected in both English and Maths performing better than UK averages and other international schools worldwide. This outstanding achievement is a testament to our personalised curriculum and world-leading teachers here at BIS HCMC.
