2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Results

January 31, 2020 at 11:33 AM

With the release of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma examination results in early January, we were very pleased with our students’ results, which showed the continued strength and growth of the programme at Saint Kentigern. 

Our Saint Kentigern students’ pass rate was 92.3%, which is 22% above the international average, 5% above the New Zealand average and 1% above the Australasian average. 

Our students’ average point score was 36, which is 7 points above the international average, 3 points higher than the Australasian average and 4 above the New Zealand average.  

This year, eight of our students gained a score of 40 points or more, placing them in the top echelon of IB Diploma students worldwide. Margaret Li and Richard Lu scored 43 points, Sophia Chiang and Will Feng and Jenny Jiang scored 42, and John Hsieh, Eric Li and Megan Yen scored 40.  These results equate to 31% of our 2019 IB Diploma cohort gaining 40 points or more. Internationally each year, an average of only 5% to 7% of students sitting the Diploma achieve this level of results

In 2019, 185,210 students from over 5000 IB World Schools in more than 150 countries sat the Diploma assessment in 16 languages across the globe. Our 2019 IB Diploma graduates have achieved very well in this rigorous international education programme that is highly recognised worldwide for university entry.

These top-performing students have now been invited to the IB Top Scholars’ Awards Ceremony at Parliament in Wellington in February.


Congratulations to our top IB Diploma students:
