Queen Margaret College achieves a 100 percent pass rate in the IB Diploma

Queen Margaret College is now in its sixth year of delivering the International Baccalaureate Diploma and as per previous years, the 2016 cohort achieved a 100% pass rate after sitting the examinations in November.

Two students, Shweta Iyer and Charlotte Hollywood, scored 40 points or above and they were recognised for their success at the Top Scholars’ Awards Ceremony by Governor General Patsy Reddy in February. The world mean is 30 out of 45.

The IB Diploma is a prestigious international qualification which has been offered since 1989 and is highly regarded around the world. Students must be excellent scholars but also have involvement in extra-curricular activities and service to gain the qualification.

The College is also proud of the exceptional results of our 2016 NCEA students, with overall pass rates of 99 percent in NCEA Level 1, 100 percent in NCEA Level 2 and 100 percent in NCEA Level 3.

Queen Margaret College offers its students a dual qualification pathway of either the International Baccalaureate Diploma or NCEA. The College is Wellington’s leading, independent girls’ school, providing education for students from Year 1 to 13 with a co-educational Pre-School. Established in 1919 as an inner-city girls’ college, this International Baccalaureate (IB) World School is known for its outstanding academic results and offering students a variety of sporting, cultural and leadership opportunities. The College will also offer onsite student accommodation from 2018 for Year 9 -13 in a new purpose-built boarding house, Queen Margaret House.
