It's a cause for celebration at Dulwich College Beijing as students and teachers are rejoicing in yet another year of outstanding IB scores as the International Baccalaureate Organisation has just announced its June 2018 IB Diploma Programme results.

While the world average Diploma score is 29.8, DCB students achieved a phenomenal 37.7 point average (out of a possible 45), with 30 percent of our students scoring 40 and above. Notably, three members of our Class of 2018 achieved a perfect score of 45, four pupils attained a stunning score of 44 and seven pupils a score of 43!

‘I am very proud of the spectacular achievements of the 2018 cohort of Dulwich College Beijing students,’ says DCB Headmaster Simon Herbert. ‘Not only did these students work tremendously hard, they also supported each other and maintained their sporting, artistic, musical and service-related interests throughout their IB years. They thoroughly deserve their success, which reflects the superb teaching and pastoral care at Dulwich. We wish these talented DCB graduates the very best as they enter the next stage of their lives at some of the best institutions around the world.’
