young students celebrating IB results
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a broad, internationally recognised qualification that lends itself to continuing in higher education at universities worldwide. Owing to its transferable curriculum internationally, it is a popular choice for globally mobile families.UCAS released the IB paper results for the May 2019 examinations on Friday 5 July so now is the time to consider which IB international school is right for your child to ensure they get the best education possible, often during a period of uncertainty following a family relocation. Relocate publishes an annual Guide to International Education & Schools, which covers in-depth information on education around the world, including expert advice for those relocating and the professionals supporting them. The Guide to Education & Schools in the UK also covers the IB and the range of private and international schools offering the IB, as well as a number of state schools, in the 6th Form.

I knew that the fast-paced, one-year AP courses didn’t suit me and A levels didn’t offer me a broad enough range of subjects, so the IB was the perfect opportunity for me to explore what I liked and decide with confidence what I wanted to study at university.”

ACS International School Egham

Our students are now equipped to take responsibility for their own learning and engage meaningfully in real-world situations."We must also thank our dedicated, resourceful and enthusiastic teachers, many of whom are IB Diploma leaders, who support our students in finding their passions and realising their potential."We congratulate each of our IB Diploma graduates, many having secured their first choice at top universities around the world. We wish them every success as lifelong learners who have the skills to contribute with confidence to our world."

TASIS The American School in England

With a 100% pass rate, all 43 of the IB graduates of TASIS The American School in England have reason to celebrate. The fact that 46% were awarded bilingual diplomas reflects the truly international nature of the School, where students from more than 50 countries can choose to study either the IB Diploma Programme or a broad-based American curriculum with a global perspective.

"Congratulations to all of our IB candidates, who have successfully earned their Diplomas while embracing the mission to make their community and world a better place," said IB Coordinator Stephanie Feo Hughes. "While their scores show their high academic achievements and commitment to learning, their work in each course and in the Core elements demonstrates their strong IB Learner Profile traits and their readiness for the next step in their academic journey. We wish them all the best!"
The cohort achieved an average point score of 33, well above the worldwide average of 30. The TASIS England Class of 2019 will now pursue higher education at a range of institutions in the UK, the US, and nine other countries around the world, including Russell Group and Ivy League universities.

Bryan Nixon, Head of School, commented, "Schools may look at our 100% pass rate, our high rate of bilingual diplomas, and an average point score above the world average. But what we are most proud of is the fact that the many hours dedicated by our students, and facilitated by our teachers, have ensured that this stage of each student’s learning journey is successfully completed and that our students will continue to nurture their intellectual curiosity and are emboldened to step forward into university and college ready for the opportunities ahead to play their part in their new learning communities."
