May 2013 IKNS IB Results
Thirty IKNS students obtained the IB diploma in May 2013, twenty-_‐three of them achieving the distinguished bilingual diploma. We are extremely proud of all of the students who worked hard to satisfy the rigorous requirements of the IB diploma. Two students obtained outstanding diploma scores in the forties, and twelve students obtained diploma scores in the distinguished range of 34-_‐45 points.

Twenty-_‐six other IKNS students obtained certificates in one or more IB subjects, achieving very good grades. The average grade obtained by all candidates (diploma and certificate) was 5.2 (out of a maximum of 7).
