Celebrating the Success of our Graduates
After sitting their International Baccalaureate Diploma exams in May 2015, our Grade 12s have left ICS and many are now going on to higher education.
They are keen to study subjects ranging from English, Engineering and Economics to Medicine, Marketing and Management. Universities that offered our students places this year included the Universities of Cambridge, Durham, Bath, York and Bristol in the UK. US universities included New York University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Northeastern University.
The pass rate at ICS this year was 93%. (This is higher than the world average IB Diploma pass rate, which has stayed stable at 79% for the last five years.*)
The mean average score of ICS candidates receiving the IB Diploma was 33 (out of a possible maximum of 45 points). Again, this is significantly better than the worldwide mean average total, which has averaged 30 points for the last five years*.
ICS is not academically selective, does not have entrance exams and takes students from all corners of the world. These results and the fact that many of our graduates are going into higher education bears out our belief that, in the right environment and supported in the right ways, when we are challenged to achieve, we can all do better than we think we can. See an overview here that celebrates the success of our students and presents the results.
We would like to congratulate the ICS Class of 2015 for their efforts in the May 2015 examination period, which proved to be an extremely rigorous and competitive examination session. We wish all of our ICS graduates success in their future endeavours and look forward to welcoming them as a member of our Alumni community.
