Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (9 July 2019) – Students of St. Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia (SJIIM) once again surpassed all expectations by producing outstanding results in the recent 2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) examinations.
30% of its IBDP students obtained 40 points and above which should place them in the top 10% of worldwide results. SJIIM also achieved an overall average score of 37 points, far above the 2018 IBDP Global Average of 29.8 points and significantly higher than the 35.4 point average across Malaysian schools offering the IB Diploma Programme in 2018. Their stellar results are a fantastic achievement considering that this is only SJIIM’s second IBDP cohort.
SJI IM’s achievement resonates wi th the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme’s standing and it enjoys a very high level of respect and recognition among the world’s higher education institutions. For students, success in the IBDP often results in advanced standing, course credit, scholarships or other admissions-related benefits at top universities worldwide. Today, more than 5000 schools worldwide offer IB programmes.
In celebration of SJIIM’s outstanding IBDP results, SJIIM will be offering additional scholarships to deserving students entering the IBDP August 2019. For additional information, please refer to www.sji-international.edu.my/ ibdp-scholarship-programme.
