Wellington Shanghai's 2020 Leavers Achieve Record High IB Scores
Covid-19 has presented many unique and unprecedented challenges to nearly every aspect of education this year. However, these trying circumstances did not hinder our pupils' academic achievements.
We are pleased to announced that our 2020 leavers achieved an average of 37.5 out of 45 points for the IB diploma.
This impressive figure places our 2020 leavers well above the global average score of 29.9. Additionally, these pupils have raised the bar for the College with a new record high score.
A closer look at our pupils' scores reveals spectacular accomplishments. One third of all pupils achieved a score of 40 points or higher. One in every five pupils achieved a bilingual diploma, which is no small feat.
Areas of particular strength included Languages, HL Biology, and HL Mathematics, where the most common grade was a 7, the highest possible score.
All of this news follows on from a year of offers from some of the world's top-ranked universities. Among them: Cambridge, Brown, Georgetown, USC, Carneige Mellon, Rice, University College London and Imperial College London.
Congratulations to all of our Old Wellingtonians. We are sincerely proud of their academic achievements in this particularly challenging year.
