The students in our class of 2020 joined 174,355 students around the world to celebrate receiving their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme results.
These students have joined a community of nearly two million graduates, in 152 countries, who have all demonstrated the knowledge, skills and determination to address our greatest challenges.
Dr Siva Kumari, the IB Director General, extended her heartfelt congratulations to students worldwide receiving their results. She said “An IB education has always been about more than results and, this year, students have had to deal with a level of global disruption that has never been experienced before.
Every IB graduate should be proud of their achievements, not just in reaching this milestone, but in the great flexibility and commitment they have shown in overcoming such obstacles. We know that the IB has prepared them to be better learners for life—to be better, more critical thinkers, better at formulating excellent questions and finding the answers, and better suited to adapting to our ever-changing world.
We at the IB wish this year’s graduates all the best for successful and fulfilling futures.
We know that they will continue to make positive differences to the world as they progress in their lives and the many new normals.”
The May 2020 IB results are based on the students’ coursework and the established assessment expertise, rigour and quality control measures built into the IB programmes. This means that the May 2020 cohort will be awarded a Diploma or Course Certificate that truly reflects their standard of work.
I am very pleased to offer my congratulations to all our students celebrating their achievements. For the sixth year running, H.I.S. has achieved a 100% pass rate. We have an average score of 32.8 points (of a possible 45) which compares very favorably with the world average score of 29.9
I thank our teachers and staff who ensure that every student at Heidelberg International School receives the highest quality education and thorough preparation for the IB exams.
