2016 KHDA Analysis of the DP years
English: Very Good
In English, students’ attainment had strengths in the interrogation of complex text, reason points and theciting of hypotheses. They could research to draw appropriate conclusions substantiated by data whenever possible. A large majority of students attained levels well above curriculum standards. In English standard, higher level literature and in Language B, students demonstrated speaking, reading, writing and listening skills that exceeded curriculum standards. In relation to individual starting points across the three phases, a majority of students made much better than expected progress. This was particularly good for the many students in IBDP for whom English was not their first language.
In mathematics, international benchmarking tests confirmed that students’ attainment was good and had been in the recent past. Progress made by all students including those with SEND, was good. Teachers and students identified and reinforced gaps in curriculum knowledge regularly and this contributed to the good progress made. Students worked confidently with more complicated mathematical concepts such as equations for the tangent of a curve, probability, arithmetic progressions and radians.
In science, a majority of students attained above expected standards, exceeding international levels and had done so over a three-year period. Students had a strong understanding of curriculum requirements and were adept at ensuring their work exceeded the requirements. They made better than expected progress in developing an understanding of scientific concepts.
