Aloha College has just achieved its greatest IB Diploma results in the history of the college.
Last May, our Year 13 pupils sat the challenging IB Programme examinations and all of them have now successfully achieved places at their first-choice university. Two of our students achieved the outstanding result of 43 and 44 points respectively, which place them above 99.8% of students worldwide.
The IB Diploma Programme consists of 2 years of study in which pupils follow six courses in different academic areas. At the end of the programme, students are assessed and grades are awarded for each course, ranging from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest). 3 additional points can be awarded for Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay. The highest total a Diploma Programme student can be awarded, therefore, is 45 points, while 24 points is the minimum to pass. The IB Diploma enables pupils to gain access to some of the best universities worldwide.
Aloha College, which offers the IB Diploma Programme since 1990, has achieved an amazing average point score of 35 this academic year. This means that 100% of pupils who followed the IB Programme at Aloha College not only passed, but did extraordinarily well. This is an especially significant achievement as the international pass rate for the Diploma is generally about 80%. Congratulations to all students, parents and staff of Aloha College!
