I am happy to announce that this year Sri KDU International School is again able to publish the highest cohort average for their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The students have been awarded an average point score of 37.6 out of 45 points which is an excellent achievement by our students. This leaves our 3-year average at 37.0. I am so proud of all of our students who have beaten back so many challenges to smash our school record.
2021 is of course another year affected by the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year the students were able to sit around half of their exams due to the reduced content of their course which was determined by the IBO. They performed admirably under strict SOP’s, were committed, diligent and focussed right up until the last exam.
This year, four of our students scored 40 points or more. They were Choi Minseok (44), Irwin Kong Xunmeng (43), Shahaznani Binti Mohd Shaharuddin (42) and Yap Tze Kien Timothy (42). These are all outstanding scores that have seen them be accepted into some fantastic universities.
Choi Minseok is still considering his university destination. Shahaznani will be studying medicine and is yet to decide her destination, Timothy will be studying Mathematics at Warwick University and Irwin will be studying Computer Science at one of the universities that he has applied for in the United States.
All of these students have been in the Sri KDU Schools previously with all three boys studying in Sri KDU International Secondary School (SKISS) and Shahaznani studying in Sri KDU Secondary School and attaining her SPM. The remainder of our students will be studying in the UK, the Netherlands and Singapore demonstrating the diverse range of destinations that students are equipped to attend after the IBDP at SKISS.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge go well to all of the SKISS IBDP graduates of 2021!
