Students at international schools in Thailand have scored well above the global average in this year’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

There are 19 international schools in Thailand offering the IBDP, including five full IB schools that teach all three programmes – the PYP, MYP and IBDP. These are Concordian International School, KIS International School, NIST International School, Prem Tinsulanonda International School and UWC Thailand International School.

Of the schools that have published results so far…

St Andrew's Green Valley celebrated a 100% pass rate and a high average score of 34.7. The highest score by one student was 40. Another Cognita-run school, St Andrews International School, Sukhumvit 107, also scored above the global average with 32.2 and an 89% pass rate.

At Regents International School Pattaya, the school’s top scoring student achieved 41, four points short of full marks.

Principal Sarah Osborne-James said:

“Once again we are above the world average, a remarkable result for a non-academically selective school. The results mean that our students will be able to go to their first-choice university, where many of them have already received unconditional offers. Amid the fantastic results was a score of 31 points by one of our RISE programme students who joined only three years ago with very little English and an incredible score of 41 points (out of a possible maximum of 45) for another of our students.”

At Bangkok Patana School, the 2018 IB cohort achieved a 98% pass rate and an average score of 35, which is considerably higher than the global average. Two students achieved the maximum score of 45, while 18% of the cohort attained 40 points or more.

Students at Prem Tinsulanonda International School scored an average DP score of 34 points, and two students achieved scores of 40 points or above. Out of the cohort of 40, 38 students passed, 25 scored 32 points or above, and 12 scored 38 points or above.

At Garden International School Rayong students scored an average of 35 and there was a 100% pass rate. The highest score was 44 and 27% of students achieved 40 points or higher.

50 years of the IB
2018 was a good year for IB in Thailand, and the 50th year of the IB was not a bad one for the International Baccalaureate programme either. Today there are over 1.7 million learners worldwide, and the global school average for 2017/18 is 29.78 points, down only slightly from 29.9 last year.
