Marlborough College IB Diploma Results 2020

An outstanding 100% success rate is being celebrated by Marlborough College Malaysia’s 2020 International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme candidates who again surpassed global and Asia-Pacific benchmarks.

MCM candidates’ average score of 35 points is the equivalent at A-Level of A*A*A and far exceeds a world average of 29.7 and the Asia Pacific average of 33.

Of the 62 IB Diploma candidates at MCM, 13 achieved scores over 40 points, which represents 21% of the IB cohort which is more than twice the global average of 10%.

The perfect MCM pass rate of 100% compares favourably with 80% world-wide, and 90% in the Asia Pacific region.

This year, Marlborough is delighted that four candidates shared our highest IB Diploma score of 43/45. Yasmin Abdul Razak has declined an offer from Oxford to study Liberal Arts at the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania; Adrianna Adam Malik plans to study International Management at King’s College London; Nannarelle Hundertmark will go to the Netherlands to study Medicine at the University of Groningen and Sophia Ho plans to travel to the ancient University of St Andrews in Scotland to study Computer Science and Mathematics.

Mr Alan Stevens, Master of the College, said:

“We are thrilled by the success of our girls and boys. These results are a richly deserved reward for their ambition, hard work and resilience in what was a most demanding year. Their beaks have inspired and taught them well and that is why at Marlborough everyone completes IB: we do not reserve the best school qualification in the world only for perceived high achievers. Yet we do not have a highly selective intake because we believe that everyone can succeed, so the stellar achievements of these young men and women owe everything to the synergy that they and their teachers have created here. We salute them all.”
