At Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium international school group, all 73 of its schools support students to achieve more than they may have ever thought possible. Every Nord Anglia school, including BIS Hanoi, believes there is no limit to what students can achieve socially, personally and academically.

A total 41 percent of the cohort achieved 40 points and above, while one student achieved an impressive perfect score of 45 points. This is the level of attainment required to gain admission to the world's elite universities, including Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford.

In addition, 68 percent of graduating students were awarded the special distinction of a bilingual diploma for demonstrating first language proficiency in two or more languages.

"We are delighted for our students. They have remained calm and focused throughout the last two years and were awarded for their perseverance. The IBDP average point score of 38.2 is the highest in our school’s history, five points above the global average. There have been some outstanding individual performances including a perfect score of 45 by Park Sungwoo," said Tim Webb, Head of Secondary.
