It’s a cause for celebration at Dulwich College Beijing as students and teachers are rejoicing in yet another year of marvelous IB scores as the International Baccalaureate organisation has just announced its June 2016 Diploma Programme results.
This year DCB entered 75 students into the full IB Diploma Programme, widely recognised as the most rigorous high school qualification globally. While the world average Diploma score is 30.07, DCB students achieved a phenomenal 37 point average (out of a possible 45), and over 24 percent of our students scored above 40. Notably, three members of our Class of 2016 achieved a stunning score of 43 and two pupils attained a nearly perfect score of 44!
‘We are delighted by the excellent IB outcomes this year, which are a result of the hard work and collaboration from our students and the dedication from our teachers,’ says DCB Headmaster Simon Herbert. ‘This year’s graduates deserve congratulations for their excellent results and university placements, which have been achieved alongside a full commitment to Service, Sport, Music, Drama and Leadership.’
IB grades are rated on a scale of 1-7, with 7 being the highest grade. Below are DCB’s highlights from this year’s exam:
- 66% of grades a 6 or better in all subjects
- 91% of grades a 5 or better in all subjects
- 100% of grades a 6 or better in Music, Theatre and Visual Arts combined
- 100% of grades a 6 or better in Mandarin, French, Spanish and German combined
- 82% of grades a 7 or better in Mandarin A, Mandarin B and Mandarin Ab Initio combined
Students from this year’s cohort will move on to prestigious universities including Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, Dartmouth, Juilliard, Oxford, and Cambridge to name just a few. Others will join the global ranks at world class universities throughout the USA, UK, Asia, and Europe. Congratulations to the Class of 2016 on your splendid achievements!
