IB Results of the Class of 2022

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) examinations are held every May over a three week period. Following the cancellation of the May 2020 examinations, in line with other assessment programs, and in consultation with universities and governments, the IB restarted examinations in May 2021.

In May 2022, to continue accommodating for the global disruption to student learning, some papers remained eliminated, and grading continued to be adjusted. Schools had two possible pathways in May 2022: written examinations, where they could be administered safely, and a non-exam route using internal assessment coursework and other assessed work, when the examinations could not be sat. There were 173,882 IB DP candidates worldwide in May 2022, and the IB used statistics to ensure that results were fairly allocated between both of these routes, and that the overall results accurately reflected students’ achievements and abilities. Saint Maur students all took the exam route.

For context, in order to receive the full IB Diploma, standard general requirements include that candidates earn at least 24 points across six subjects; complete the Creativity-Activity-Service (CAS) requirement over two years; complete the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course; and complete an Extended Essay (EE), which is an independently written 4000-word academic research paper. The maximum point total is 45 (with up to 42 points available from the six subjects, and up to three additional points available for work submitted for TOK and the EE).

In May 2022, 30 students in Grade 12 at Saint Maur sat the IB examinations, 26 of whom were full IB Diploma candidates. All 26 of these students successfully completed the requirements to earn the IB Diploma, with a mean total points score of 38.5 points out of 45. The average subject grade obtained by these students was 6.04 (out of 7), surpassing the worldwide average subject grade of 5.12.

Particular congratulations are due to the eleven full IB Diploma candidates (42% of the cohort) who earned 40 or more points. There was one student who scored a full 45 points (achieved by approximately 0.7% of candidates around the world in May 2022).

The Bilingual Diploma recognizes those IB Diploma candidates who studied two Group 1 language courses (for example, English A and Japanese A language and literature). Congratulations to the twelve students who achieved a Bilingual Diploma this year.

This year, the four IB Course Candidates achieved an average subject grade of 4.35 across their subjects - well done to each of them.

And finally, thank you to everyone in the community - teachers, parents, friends, tutors - for their support of our recently graduated students. We fondly wish our graduates all the best in their future educational endeavors around the world.
