Remarkable 2020 IB Diploma Results for ISF Students

The Independent Schools Foundation Academy (ISF) offers our hearty congratulations to all members of its Class of 2020 for their remarkable International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results.

Head of School, Dr. Malcolm Pritchard, praised the efforts of the graduating class: “The ISF Academy commends the 50 members of the Class of 2020 for their resilience, diligence and adaptability throughout the IB journey, especially given the challenging class and final assessment arrangements amid the social unrest of 2019 and the outbreak of COVID-19 this year. The entire ISF community is very proud of our 2020 graduates, the ninth cohort of IB Diploma students, for their impressive results and great efforts. The high proportion of Bilingual Diploma earners – three in four students – also demonstrates our students’ extraordinary skills in mastering both Chinese and English through our unique program, backed by a deep appreciation for Chinese culture and other civilizations. We wish them every success in their future endeavors!” 

ISF has reported a 100% pass rate, with an average mean score of 37.2 (world average was 29.9). Five students scored 44 or 43 points. Nineteen students scored 40 points or higher (38%). In addition, 76% students received the Bilingual Diploma.

The graduates will continue their learning at the world’s most prestigious and selective universities. Members of Class 2020 have received more than 284 offers from over 150 universities and colleges around the world, many of which are among the most selective in the world including Ivy League Schools – Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania (including an offer to the prestigious Wharton School of Business) and Dartmouth College. Other offers include the University of Cambridge, University of California-Los Angeles, Boston University, University of Chicago, University of Warwick, Imperial College London, London School of Economics and Politics, and the University of Hong Kong, to name but a few. The Class 2020 was also offered a total of 41 scholarships, amounting to around HKD 12 million.
