The 2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) examination results saw
30% of St. Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia (SJIIM) students obtain 40 points and above, placing them in the top 10% of worldwide results. SJIIM also achieved an overall average of 37 points, far above the 29.8 points average in the 2018 IBDP Global Average as well as the 35.4 point average across the Malaysian schools offering IBDP in 2018.

The top IBDP scorer, Chong Ying Xuan, achieved a near perfect score of 44 points and will be pursuing a BA in Law with Humanities at the University of Warwick. “SJIIM combines the best of education and learning environment in a school with some of the most supportive and knowledgeable teachers in the IB world. It is truly a school that develops you not simply as a student, but also as a person who is acutely aware of their community and surroundings. It opened the doors to many opportunities for me that were both very new and exciting such as the World Scholar's Cup, Pitstop Café Soup Kitchen and the Lasallian Youth Movement. Learning at SJIIM presents knowledge not simply as facts, but also as something to be examined, debated and criticised. This challenges us to seek a wider perspective beyond the constraints of a textbook.” said Ying Xuan. 

Dr. Nicola Brown, High School Principal at SJIIM, was very proud of the students and their achievements. “The excellent results achieved are incredibly satisfying for the teachers and the students and are a testimony to the hard work and dedication both have shown throughout the last two years.” 

To celebrate these outstanding IBDP results, SJIIM will be offering additional scholarships to deserving students entering the IBDP in August 2019. Find out more about the programme and scholarship requirements here
