Schools in the UAE have started receiving results for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) today, with many institutions recording a 100 per cent pass rate. UAE students received outstanding results in these exams, with their performance hitting marks that are significantly above the international average.
School groups in the UAE announced another year of impressive results achieved by their Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) students — with pass rates also exceeding the global average. Several students achieved scores that position them among the top 1 per cent of IB graduates worldwide.
Congratulating the students on their success, Richard Drew, principal of Jumeira Baccalaureate School and chair of the IB Heads Association for the UAE, said: “Today’s results are a reflection of the exceptional abilities and personal growth of our students, who have embraced the IB mission and embodied its core values throughout their academic journey.”
“These young individuals have not only achieved remarkable academic milestones but have also developed crucial life skills, including critical thinking, empathy, and intercultural understanding, which will serve them well in their future endeavours.”
Glen Radojkovich, deputy director of education for IB and UK Curriculum at Taaleem, said: “As we celebrate these remarkable achievements, we express our gratitude to the parents and families who have played a pivotal role in supporting our students throughout their academic journey. The partnership between home and school has been instrumental in fostering an environment where students can thrive and reach their full potential.”
Other standout results from various school groups include institutions from the Gems network.
Nargish Khambatta, Principal of GEMS Modern Academy and Senior Vice President – Education, GEMS Education, said: “This is yet another remarkable achievement by our students – their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme results substantially exceed global benchmarks and reflect our faculty’s unwavering dedication to our student’s success year after year. Witnessing their outstanding all-around performance reaffirms our commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals. These results are a testament to the collective efforts of our dedicated educators, supportive parents, and, above all, the remarkable talents and determination of our students. Congratulations to every one of our boys and girls; their remarkable accomplishments have done Modern proud on the world’s stage, yet again.”
Students are relieved and overjoyed.
Saatvik Sharma, a GEMS Modern Academy student who scored 42, is heading to UCLA to study Finance. He said: “I feel ecstatic and relieved now that this chapter of my life has ended. It’s wonderful to see my hard work and dedication pay off. I look forward to university life and will carry the skills learned during IB forever.”
Chloe Dsouza, also of GEMS Modern Academy, scored 41 and is going to the University of Notre Dame in the US to major in Applied Maths. She said: “It’s been such a journey; I know all of us have come such a long way since we started the Diploma Programme. I am very relieved and overjoyed with my results. This would not have been possible without the support of my friends, family, and teachers.”
