International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) students receive their exams results on July 6 (IB Results Day). Many have conditional offers from universities and their admission depends on reaching a specified score on the exams. IB Results Day sometimes can determine their future path. The OIS class of 2017 scores from the May 2017 were outstanding, with an average score of 33.3 compared to a world average score of 30. A student needs 24 points to pass the exam out of a possible 45 points. Of the close to 150,000 students sitting the over 500,000 exams, only 200 students had a perfect score of 45.

A student needs 24 points to pass the exam out of a possible 45 points. Of the 159,400 students sitting the over 500,000 exams, only 218 students reached a perfect score of 45. In fact, only 5% of IB candidates score 40 or above. Kai Junge, Airi Wakasa and Corrine Watanabe scored over 40 points, which is 16% of this year’s class. Kai scored perfect 7s in his higher level science and mathematics course, a first for OIS. All OIS students taking the full diploma programme scored 25 or above.
