Congratulations to the 51 students who participated in the May 2014 IB examinations. The results were extremely pleasing this session.
All thirty-three students who sat for the diploma obtained the distinguished bilingual diploma, achieving a 100% diploma pass rate. The mean diploma point score was a solid 33 points this year, which was significantly higher than the world average of 29.81 points and also higher than the May 2013 mean IKNS diploma score of 32 points.
