St.Andrews students smash records in recent IB exams
Students at St.Andrews International School Green Valley broke all kinds of records this year in their IB exams. Students achieved an unbelievable average of 38.6 points for passing the Full Diploma. This is a staggering 8.6 grades higher than the world average and is likely to be the highest average of any International School in Thailand.
Students also recorded a perfect 100% pass rate compared to the World Average of 80.8%. Mo Sassikorn was 1 of only 147 students worldwide to gain a maximum 45 points out of 45. Considering there are 149,000 students that took the Full Diploma, it shows what a remarkable achievement this was. Ty Kerr was in the top 3% of all IB students with a high score of 42 points.
St Andrews’ students achieved an average score of 5.4 per subject compared to 4.9 internationally. St Andrews therefore prides itself on being significantly above international standards each and every year.
Head teacher Mr. Andy Harrison enthused that “we are once again thrilled with our students IB Diploma results. We are not only proud of their final results but of the improvement that each and every student made over the two years of studying the IB Diploma. The dedication of our students and staff is second to none. The fact that we achieve results like this year in and year out is a testament to the quality education that students receive in all year groups at St Andrews. However, this year is a truly remarkable year. To achieve 38.6 is what dreams are made of and to have Mo achieve full marks is a testimony to the hard work she put in and the quality of staff that we have got at the school!”
St Andrews graduating IB students are now moving to universities in Canada, France, Hong Kong, USA, the UK, Netherlands and Thailand to complete their tertiary education. One student Alex McMurray has already been accepted onto a commercial pilot’s flight after obtaining his private flight licence over the summer. They have big dreams and bright futures so we wish them luck and will always remember them fondly as a part of the St. Andrews family.
