Successful Next Steps

ISL Qatar Graduation 2017

In May 2017, our fifth cohort of students sat their IB Diploma examinations, and we are proud to report the achievements of the Class of 2017. Once again, the ISL Qatar IB Diploma graduates surpassed international averages in Diploma scores and overall pass rate.

It is worth noting that 42 students successfully passed the IB Diploma. Our highest scores were a very impressive 43 points (top 1% worldwide), 41 points (top 4% worldwide) and 40 points (top 6% worldwide), out of the maximum possible score of 45 points. It is a great achievement to have three students scoring 40 points or more. It is also very pleasing that within the Extended Essay, a 4,000-word research assignment that is an important component of the IB Diploma, 55% of our students achieved an A or B. Once again, our language results were outstanding, but there were also very strong results in Business Management, History, Geography, Psychology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Theatre and Visual Arts.
