SINGAPORE – Amid a Covid-19 pandemic which has disrupted learning, students from Singapore who sat the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma exams last November have managed to outshine their global counterparts again.
The Switzerland-based IB Organisation, which conducts the exams, said Singapore produced 55 of the 99 perfect scorers – more than half – this year.
Of the 2,228 students in Singapore who took the exams, 97.73 per cent passed. The global pass rate was 76.68 per cent, while the rate for the Asia-Pacific region was 91.83 per cent.
