As the new school year reaches full swing, YCIS Shanghai students have some added motivation driving them towards academic success: the just-released IB scores from the 2012/2013 school year, which highlight the phenomenal academic ability and dedication of last year’s graduating class.
To fully understand how remarkable these scores are, it is helpful to also look at last year’s results for IB candidates worldwide, in tangent with YCIS Shanghai scores for the school’s two graduating classes of 2013. Taken as a group, the average score for YCIS Shanghai students was an astounding 34.9 out of a possible 45, which leads the 2012 worldwide average of 29.7 by a wide margin. In addition, a full 21% of the YCIS graduates scored above 40 points, compared to only 6.6% of students who scored above 40 worldwide last year. Furthermore, YCIS is thrilled to again be able to announce and celebrate a student achieving a perfect score: 45 out of 45.
Accompanying the stand-out scores for the graduates was a perfect diploma pass rate of 100%; and, as credit to the strong Chinese language programme at YCIS, an impressive one third of those graduates received a bilingual diploma.
IGCSE exam marks came back with equally successful results. The highest score achieved was a 10A*, and the percentage of the class that received A* was an impressive 29%. Taken together with scores ranging from A* to A, over half of the class earned this distinction, and in total, 90% of the class scored a C or higher on the challenging exams.
Congratulations to all YCIS students for their stellar test results, and best wishes to the students in their exams this year.
