It’s time to congratulate all
International Baccalaureate results
Top 100 Schools? Think again!
The ‘League Tables’ and ‘Lists of Top Schools’, produced by Sydney Morning Herald and Daily Telegraph, rank NSW high schools using results from HSC students. These do not include results from the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
An increasing number of students are choosing to take the globally recognised International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This means that high achievers from these schools are not included in the media’s Top 100 Schools ranking.
On January 3, 2,646 students in Australia, 404 students in New Zealand, together with 20,385 students worldwide received their Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) results from the November 2023 examination session. This marks a 12.18% increase in the number of students receiving DP and CP results from last year. In the May 2023 examination session a further 179,922 students completed the DP and CP.
With a global average DP score for the November 2023 session of 29.06 points, today’s IB graduates join a community of more than 2.3 million alumni and lifelong learners across 160 countries worldwide.
The Australian average score was 34.53 points. The world-wide award rate of the Diploma was 71.93%, 94.61% for Australia. There were 514 students in Australia that received results of 40 or above.
