The Class of 2023 International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma students at Jerudong International School (JIS) are celebrating a superb set of IB Diploma results. With an average score of 34.83, our students are ahead of the global average of 30.24. 76% of the JIS students exceeded the world average, 41% achieved 36 points or above and 24% achieved 40 points or above. This is significant because to enter the prestigious Russell Group Universities in the UK, 36 points is typically the minimum score required.

The School’s IB results continue to be outstanding, building on the excellent history of IB Diploma provision at JIS. Han Hor (Head Girl) and Tania Teo (Fireback Deputy House Captain) both achieved the highest score of 44 points. Tania is heading to University College London (UCL) in the UK to pursue Pharmacy (M Pharm). Han will be studying at London School of Economics (LSE) to study International Relations and History.

Three students achieved 38 points - Widad Sahraini (Kingfisher Well-being Lead), Zara Raymin (Skylark Deputy House Captain) and Tasya Juraimi (Osprey Sports Captain & Digital Citizenship Lead).

Tania Teo - Tania achieved 44 points and is going to UCL in the UK for an MPharm. 

Mr Nicholas Sheehan, Principal of JIS said that "whilst these top performing students will leave JIS with superb academic results, they will be remembered more by their fellow students for the significant impact as young leaders in  the school and the influence they have had on those around them. They have set an excellent example to the younger members of our community. These success stories would not have been written  without their parents support and also that of the academic team in the Upper Years - Mr Daniel Milner (Head of Senior School and JIS Vice Principal), Mr Alex Cook (Academic Director) and Mr Dan Roberts (IB Coordinator and Head of Sixth Form - academic), who, together with the teaching and pastoral staff continue to challenge and inspire students to become the best that they can be.”

The International Baccalaureate is offered at JIS as one of the pre-university options for 16-18 year olds and is the world's fastest growing international qualification. To complete this challenging qualification, students study six subjects – three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level including English, Maths, a Language, a Humanities subject, a Science subject plus a final creative or elective subject choice. In addition, they complete a challenging 4000 word piece of research, a mini thesis, as well as completing Theory of Knowledge (ToK), a critical thinking skills course as well as a compulsory Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) component which takes place throughout the two years.
