Welcome to our new families and staff, and welcome back all returning CIS community members. We are excited to be starting the school year back on campus again! The new Newsflash edition will begin starting next week, August 12, 2022. We have a lot in store for you!
On July 6, students around the world received their IB Diploma results. At CIS, we are pleased to report our students continue to perform above the world average in all key metrics – a credit to the students, their teachers, parents, CIS, and the IB program!
Most importantly, our students’ results give us confidence that they are ready to take on the challenges of our time and be positive contributors in a competitive, changing world.
Despite taking on nearly the entire two-year Diploma Programme online via our #CISRemoteLearning program, and dealing with the restrictions of COVID and the aftermath of Supertyphoon Odette, CIS students scored exceptionally well, above the world average in pass rates, average total points, and average course grades.
Furthermore, our students received offers from multiple countries and universities around the world, along with scholarship offers worth over 1 million USD! We congratulate them all on their success, commend them for their hard work over these past two years, and wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
Congratulations to our Class of 2021 for their hard work in achieving excellent IB results—with a 100% pass rate! A student has earned the highest score of 44 (out of 45) and in addition to that, this cohort’s average points is now the highest in CIS history.
Results are compared to this years’ world average numbers based on the article released by the IBO announcing statistics of more than 170,000 IB students across the globe.
The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a rigorous two-year programme of international education that prepares Grade 11 & 12 students for university and life in a competitive, changing world. IBDP students follow six courses: three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level. The points awarded for each course range from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest). Students can also be awarded up to three additional points for their combined results on the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge. The highest possible total score for the IB Diploma is 45 points. The IB Diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to various levels of performance across the whole Diploma and to satisfactory completion of Creativity, Activity and Service requirements.
We are very proud of our students and a big thank you to their teachers for supporting them during challenging times.
