IB Diploma Results 2022
World-beating IB results at every measure in MCM
Despite being the year group that has been most affected by the disruption of COVID-19 since 2020, the Upper Sixth class of 2022 rose to the academic challenge and matched their predecessors’ excellent records of IB Diploma attainment at Marlborough College Malaysia, beating yet again the global and the Asian benchmarks.
With an average point score of 35 across the College, equating to more than 4 A grades at A-Level, it remains a source of pride that MCM does not recruit on narrowly academic grounds. It is therefore even more creditable that 20% of Marlborough College Malaysia’s IB candidates again achieved 40 points or more; this is more than 3 times the normal global rate and it opens doors to the most competitive universities worldwide.
Mr. Alan Stevens, Master of the College, said: “We are delighted by the success of this year’s candidates. They have shown tremendous resilience and adaptability, skills which will stand them in good stead in future. Their excellent results are well-deserved recognition of their determination and hard work through some extraordinarily challenging times, as well as the professionalism and thoroughness of their beaks.”
The IB Diploma continues to be the gold standard of pre-university qualifications for its breadth, rigour, accessibility and consistency. One of last year’s leavers commented on his first year at university, saying “my IB at MCM was so useful; it really gave me an introduction to university style study that my UK peers from other schools simply did not have.”
Marlborough College Malaysia’s successful new Diploma holders will now decide which offers from some of the world’s leading universities to accept. As a British school, most offers came from the UK’s elite Russell Group, but MCM’s global outlook and reach ensure that each year candidates also accept places in some of the most competitive universities in the USA, Canada and Australia.
To prepare Sixth Form candidates for such elite universities, MCM offers one of the broadest ranges of IB Diploma subjects in the region, allowing Sixth Form candidates to tailor their curriculum and indulge their strengths within a strong and coherent overall programme. This explains the breadth of undergraduate courses which MCM candidates will again study in the year ahead: a full range of academic courses in natural sciences, humanities and languages, professional courses in medicine, law, finance and engineering and creative studies in different forms of fine art and design.
At Marlborough College Malaysia everyone has the opportunity to complete IB: it is not reserved only for perceived high achievers and each year it is demonstrated that everyone can succeed with the right guidance and attitude.
MCM’s Sixth Form students also benefit beyond the curriculum from authentic challenges to the intellect and character and a leadership programme that aims to prepare them not just intellectually, but socially and morally for independent living, success and genuine happiness. It is an education for the 21st century.
