May 2017 IKNS IB Results
This year we celebrated the largest group of IB Diploma students in the history of the school. Fifty-two students obtained the IB Diploma with a pleasing pass rate of 98%. The highest diploma score was 40 points this session, the average Diploma score was 32 points and the average subject grade for Diploma students was 5.13. We are proud of all students who challenged themselves and were able to meet the different demands of this rigorous programme.
Congratulations to the fifty-two students who fulfilled all requirements of the IB Diploma. Special congratulations go the twenty students who achieved a distinguished Diploma score between 34 and 40 points, and of course to the students who obtained the highest diploma scores: Lulwa Mohamed AlKhalifa, Faisal Moemen AlReefy, Fahad Mohamed AlKhaja and Khalifa Humood AlKhalifa.
Thirty-nine course candidates obtained certificates in one or more IB subjects, achieving good grades. English, Math and Visual Arts were popular IB subjects with these candidates. Course candidates also registered for IB examinations in Physics, Chemistry, Arabic B and Film.
We wish all our graduates continued success in their higher education!
