We are happy to announce the results of the IBDP exams (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme), published on 5 July every year.
The results of the first Styrian IBDP graduates are exceptionally high and impressive, with a pass rate of 100%. The school average is 36 and well above the world average of around 30.
In the IBDP the highest possible score is 45 points — around 0.4% of students worldwide achieve the perfect score, less than 3% score 40 points.
Out of 22 GIBS graduates, 8 scored 40 points or more, one student each scored 43, 44, and 45 points.
Parallel to these extremely high scores in the IBDP, the Austrian students also took the Reifeprüfung (Austrian National school leaving exam) and passed it with distinction.
We are very proud of our students’ results and academic performance, and we wish them all the best for their future.
Mag.a Ursula Schatz, IBDP Coordinator
