Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (16 August 2019) - The students of St. Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia (SJIIM) have secured outstanding scores in the recent Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations. Overall, the results recorded were excellent and bested even the impressive inaugural set of IGCSE results it achieved in 2018.
37% of the grades achieved were graded at A* while 69% were graded at A*- A which is an outstanding achievement. Meanwhile, 88% of the grades achieved were graded A*- B and an unbelievable 97% were graded at A* - C. This achievement is also very impressive given that it is significantly higher than the world IGCSE examinations result average in 2018. There was further cause to celebrate when it was revealed that 96% of the students who sat for the IGCSE examinations achieved a minimum 5A* - C grade for all their subject papers which assures them of their further education pathways.
The top scorers for SJIIM were Emily Ng Siew Zhang and Joey Chee who both scored an amazing 10A* respectively. They were ecstatic and credited their success to the learning experience in SJIIM. Emily Ng, who will also be continuing her studies in SJIIM under the IBDP said, “My 3 years in SJIIM as a founding student has been a really great experience as I learnt so much academically and more importantly, developed and grew as a person, along with my classmates. The IGCSE was truly a rewarding experience for me.”
Joey Chee, who will be furthering her studies in the UK, also echoed Emily’s sentiment, “My time in SJIIM has been a wonderful experience with supportive teachers and a very strong sense of community. I am extremely grateful to have gone through my IGCSE in the conducive environment that SJIIM creates for its students.”
