Focused achievers: Research shows IB students outperform peers at university R


esearch comparing the higher education outcomes of UK university students who studied either the International Baccalaureate (IB)


Diploma Programme (DP) or A Levels confirms that DP students are three times more likely to attend a top 20 higher education institution.


The study gathered data from a sample size of almost 1.3 million IB


and A Level students across the academic years 2013 –14 to 2018–19, also reveals that:


• 40% more likely than matched A Level qualifiers to obtain a first - or upper second-class honours degree.


• 38% more likely than their A Level peers to be engaged in further study post-graduation.


• 21% more likely than matched A Level students to continue to their second year of university.


The results reinforce the DP’s robust academic curriculum, which is


built around the DP core; enabling students to develop the necessary skills to thrive at university by undertaking the theory of knowledge course, creativity, activity, service, and the extended essay.


Discussing the DP core and its advantages, Chris Bromham, School


Principal at the International College Spain, Madrid, said: “I find that the elements of the DP core truly make the DP the incredible programme it is, and provide our students with a passport to university when they decide to make that step.”
