Graduate Destinations

RCHK’s IB Diploma Programme results in 2015 – 2016 were once again were impressive. The pass rate was a remarkable 99.2%, and 17% of our Diploma students have achieved more than 40 points. Not only do these results represent a good margin above world averages; they also show that standards have been both maintained and improved upon, as RCHK has experienced a significant increase in enrolment.

Student Destinations

The majority of students are now studying at higher education institutions in Hong Kong (27%), the UK (21%), Canada (17%) and the USA (17%). Seven students have decided to gain knowledge outside of academia by taking a gap year before they head off to university.

With guidance and support from our further education counsellors, students were encouraged to apply to universities based on a strategy of selecting “stretch,” “realistic” and “safety” choices. Students submitted an average of five applications each and generally they received multiple offers, ensuring an extremely high success rate in securing places at university.

The majority of our graduates are now studying a diverse range of subjects around the world including art and design, law, medicine, pharmacy, sciences and engineering, education, philosophy and literature, film studies, hospitality management, economics and business, and history of arts.
