IB Diploma Provisional Results: May 2016

The results for the May 2016 IB DP cohort was another outstanding year for Renaissance College with significant improvements compared to previous years. This continual improvement in an increasingly competitive environment is testament to the quality of education offered at Renaissance College. Nearly a quarter of our DP students (24%) achieved 40+ points.

It is impressive to note that our average score is 36 (35.9), which is the average score needed for entry into HKU, HKUST, a number of the University of London colleges and excellent universities in the US such as UCLA.

Please note that these results are likely to increase as the results of remarks come in over the next 4 or 5 weeks.
