Six students from Sunway International School (SIS) Kuala Lumpur and 14 students from SIS Iskandar Puteri, Johor achieved a 100% success rate in the recent November 2021 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) examination series, exceeding the global passing rate of 87%t.
With an average score of 36.15, both SIS campuses surpassed the global average of 32.37, with a top scorer scoring 44 points and three bilingual diploma winners. Since 2017, SIS has offered the IBDP at both campuses, and the results have consistently outperformed the global average.
Eugenia Ong, who received a bilingual diploma from SIS Iskandar Puteri with 39 points, said, “I felt surprised when I received my results for languages because I am not sure if my writing is in line with the criteria my teachers had taught me. I am grateful for this result and I am going to pursue business for my bachelors’ degree where my bilingual diploma would be helpful in getting into the universities.”
Candidates who finished and received a grade 3 or above in two languages from the diploma programme course studies in language and literature are given a bilingual diploma. Bilingual diploma recipients are highly sought after by competitive universities.
Craig Gerow, Principal of SIS Iskandar Puteri shared, “We are proud of their hard work and the resilience they showed to complete the IBDP under the trying circumstances.”
Sunway International Schools are among the few private schools in Malaysia to provide the November series of IB Diploma Programme examinations. The schools embrace and promote IBDP philosophy to develop international-mindedness in students through a good mix of students and teachers from different countries and diverse cultures.
SIS campuses are offering the IBDP entrance scholarship for new students enrolled on the programme at SIS. More information on the scholarship can be found via https://sis.sunway.edu.my.
