IB Diploma Results (Provisional): May 2020

Sha Tin College is extremely proud to announce another outstanding set of IB Diploma results. What is particularly remarkable about the students’ achievements is that Sha Tin College is an inclusive school, catering for students of almost all abilities. It is extremely pleasing that this year’s students achieved an average Diploma point score of 37.6, compared with world average of 29.9 points.

The percentage of our students awarded the IB Diploma is an impressive 100%, which is more than 22% higher than the world-wide average.

Please note: IBO Worldwide data for May 2020 is not yet available, with the exception of the mean total points score, so May 2019 data has been provided. The worldwide data has stayed fairly consistent over the last few years.

This year we have six students who achieved the maximum 45 points and a further seven students achieved the near perfect score of 44 points. Overall 48 students (32% of the Diploma cohort) achieved 40 or more points compared with a world average of approximately 8%.

Whilst we are extremely proud of these academically able students, we are also particularly proud of the many students who fulfilled their personal potential, and the students who were expected to find the Diploma Programme particularly challenging. Through sheer hard work and determination, these students have managed to achieve at least 28 points, well above the 24 points needed to pass the IB Diploma.

Importantly, we would like to highlight the success of our 13 Bilingual Diploma students. All were successfully awarded this very prestigious diploma. One of these students was awarded a Bilingual Diploma with the maximum 45 points, while another student was awarded the Bilingual Diploma with a near perfect score of 44 points. All our Bilingual Diploma students should be very proud of the work they put in to achieve this success. We are also tremendously proud of our IB Courses students. They all did very well in their individually chosen pathways, and will now move forward onto new, diverse and exciting challenges.

Overall, STC students scored an average of 5.9 point (out of 7) per subject, matching our best past performances. STC students set a record average of 2.29 point (Out of 3) for the CORE component of their programme. Completion of the CAS programme is not included as part of the IB points score, but remains a formal requirement for being awarded the IB Dipoma. All STC students were successful in fulfilling the CAS requirements. Average grades for IB subjects at Sha Tin College are well above worldwide averages for all IB subject groups, and this is an indication that our students are achieving well across the curriculum.
