Another Triumph for YCIS Beijing IB Graduates

Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing) students again proved their academic excellence in the International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations. With 28 students taking the IB diploma, on average the students scored 35.4 out of 45, an increase on last year’s score and well ahead of the international average of 29.83.

YCIS Beijing has now surpassed the international average for six consecutive years since its introduction of the IB programme in 2007. A total of 81.25 per cent of the YCIS Beijing IB Diploma students achieved the highest possible score in their Mandarin studies.

Furthermore, 18 per cent of YCIS Beijing students attained 40 points or above and 82 per cent of students attained a score of 30 points or above. This is a phenomenal achievement by the students within this internationally recognized course, and this year has provided further evidence of YCIS Beijing’s excellence in education.

Jimmy Lee, a YCIS Beijing student from Korea who will attend Imperial College London (ICL) to study electrical engineering, spoke about his time at YCIS Beijing and the IB course, “I have been at YCIS Beijing for nine years. While I am proud and relieved to have finished the long journey of IGCSE and IB, I also feel sad about leaving a school that I am so attached to. The IB course made me think creatively, due to the experimental designs and research essays. I believe creative thinking is one of the most valuable parts of the programme and a necessary part, especially when we get into university. I am looking forward to actively contributing to society in my everyday life.”

Katie Dark, another successful YCIS Beijing graduate who will move to England to attend either Cambridge or Durham University to study international relations with sociology, shares: “Having studied at YCIS Beijing for four years I have enjoyed the international environment and a blend of cultures. I have also appreciated other aspects of the education YCIS Beijing offered, such as the individual attention and guidance my classmates and I have received and teachers who encouraged me to make the most of every opportunity.”

With offers coming in from universities such as University of Pennsylvania (USA), University of Michigan (USA) Durham University (UK), Cambridge and Oxford University, the future is shining brightly for all YCIS graduates.
