Dr Siva Kumari, the IB’s director general, said: “They [IB students] have shown a thirst for knowledge, a determination to succeed and a conviction in their ability to take on their next best step equipped with high quality preparation.
“Higher education institutions and employers alike are telling us we need young people who can collaborate, communicate and think critically while creating new knowledge. Research suggests that an IB diploma prepares students with these skills. Our alumni are addressing the challenges humanity face with open-minds and creativity.
“I wish this year’s graduates all the best for the future and for making our world better”.
Paula Wilcock, the IB’s chief assessment officer, added: “I would like to thank our global community of teachers, invigilators and examiners who ensure that every student receives a fair and, meaningful result.
“I look forward to continuing to develop assessments that challenge students to go beyond not just what they know, but how their studies fit into the wider context of our world.”
