Nexus International School’s Class of 2020 achieved an average score of 35 points, which is well above the world average of 29.9 and with a 100% pass rate. 33% of these students achieved more than 40 points, placing them in the top 10% worldwide. Two Nexus learners, Julie Emily Matula and Ahmad Matin Moors, scored 44 points making them among the top 1% in the world.
Julie Emily Matula, achieved 44 out of 45 points and has been accepted to New York University Abu Dhabi to pursue Liberal Arts.
“I decided to pursue the IB Diploma because it allowed me to explore many different subjects whilst also encouraging me to try new things - both inside and outside of the classroom,” says Julie, who has been accepted to the prestigious New York University Abu Dhabi to study Liberal Arts. Ahmad Matin, on the other hand, feels that teachers at Nexus made lessons engaging. “They helped me organise my overall workload by spreading deadlines and made sure I targeted areas that I needed to improve,” he adds. Matin, who is a full-time boarder at Nexus will be headed to University of St Andrews to pursue Economics and English.
“Nexus teachers made classroom lessons engaging,” says Ahmad Matin Moors.
Another high achieving graduate, Emily Kuik, has been awarded the prestigious Lester B. Pearson International Scholarship by The University of Toronto to pursue an undergraduate degree in Psychology. Her contribution to the community was one of the factors for winning the competitive scholarship. She actively ran art projects for Orang Asli children, orphans and individuals with Down Syndrome and co-organised charity piano recitals to raise funds for different charitable organisations and refugee centres.
