Cognita students secure exceptional International Baccalaureate (IB) exam results
Cognita schools in Asia and Europe are celebrating outstanding International Baccalaureate (IB) examination results from the 2017 tests. Students from Cognita schools in Singapore, Thailand, the UK and Vietnam achieved their IB Diploma in 2017, exceeding the worldwide average IB pass rate.
Students from International School Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam); St Andrews International School, Green Valley (Thailand); St Andrews International School, Sukhumvit 107 (Thailand); Stamford American International School (Singapore) and Southbank International School (UK) took the examinations in 2017.
Of particular note are the two schools within the Cognita family who are celebrating perfect or near perfect scores by their students – Yeji, a student at International School Ho Chi Minh City recorded a flawless 45 (out of 45) and three students at Southbank International School scored an impressive 44 (out of 45).
Students will now go on to take up places at top Universities worldwide, including Oxford, Cambridge, Columbia, Harvard, Imperial, McGill, NYU, Penn State, UCL, UCLA and many more.
“We wish to congratulate all of our IB students on their successes in these examinations,” says Chris Jansen, Cognita’s Chief Executive Officer. “The IB is recognised by leading universities around the globe for the rigour and breadth it fosters in students and we are proud that our schools continue to achieve such admirable and improving results year after year.”
