Background – IB Results Day UAE. International Baccalaureate Results 2021. Facts at a Glance.

Results day matters. Why? To celebrate the achievements of every single student. Every one.
What it does not matter for is as a comparative tool to address whether one school, or worse, one set of students, or individual students, are better than each other. Nothing could be further from the truth – or indeed more of a category error.
Every child is different. No child is better than another. Each school has a different set of students – and achieves in many, many more ways for students than the bald, black and white reduction of human beings to numbers.
Examination results tell you nothing, zero, about the whole child development of a child.
It tells you nothing about the myriad of ways schools help children flourish and meet their potential in ways that really matter.
Are they courageous, kind, compassionate, inspired (and inspiring) likeable, genuine, humble (not arrogant), driven, ambitious, likeable, creative, entrepreneurial….. Are they the type of friend you would like to be able to count on (bearing in mind that most of us will be lucky if we can count on one hand the number of true friends we have in this world)? Not every child who excels at exams will even choose what many of us will assume. We all know Grade A Star students who have been accepted for Oxbridge, but choose a different path – their path. When we are older – do we judge people by their grades? That would be a terrible world – and fortunately IB Results, or A’ Levels, almost never get discussed once our school days have disappeared from their invariably short term memory and meaningfulness. Nor too are examination results a prediction of how traditionally defined successful people will be. We all know CEOs and CFOs that did not even secure a GCSE. Nor will we marry people based on IB or any other type of results.
So…. when we print the following, it is absolutely not about league tables. It is not about comparing schools to define the best schools for children. Examination results absolutely do not do this.
Never have, never will.
Even the Principal of the most successful, highest performing academically selective school in the UAE is an evangelist for students at his school being so much more than their examination results. And quite rightly.
When you read the following then, this is a day to celebrate our graduating students – the highest performing – and, without question, those too, and equally, that have done less well. Life is what it is. Things happen for a reason. We are all part of this wonderful world that is what it is because of difference. This is not woke nonsense but an appreciation that schools, the best schools, achieve in countless more important ways for students beyond league tables, – and that the amazing graduating young men and women today are and will never be just numbers. 
Not even close. 
The future looks bright – for every single one of you.
If the world was made by numbers, computers and machines would long ago have prevailed. The day that happens the human race is over. 
So all of you matter. All. A better, not dystopian, future rests on that.

I’ve just received my IB Diploma results, and I am extremely glad to share that I got a perfect score of 45. My plans for the future are to study pure mathematics at Imperial College London, and hopefully I will pursue a career in academia, going into research and teaching mathematics.

“I would like to thank all of my teachers, all of my peers, but if I had to thank one person in particular it would be our IB Diploma Coordinator, Dr Sunipa Guha Neogi. She has been incredible. There are very few words to describe the kind of support that she has given all of us through this extremely trying and challenging year. She has helped us cope with the challenges of the IB combined with the challenges of remote learning. So, I think it’s been an extremely successful year in no small part due to Dr Sunipa.
“The future will need me to exhibit certain skills, which definitely the IB has laid the foundations for. So, I would like to say that I’m cautious, a little anxious, but still confident that my education has prepared me very well for what lies ahead.”
Sidharth Hariharan, Valedictorian, GEMS Modern Academy
“I’m planning to attend University of Toronto in Canada to study Life Sciences and specialise in Molecular Biology. I’m so pleased to get these results! I’ve had two days of absolute sleepless nights, and I’m glad that the results reflect the work and commitment that I’ve put in. It was nerve-wracking but I was happy to see my friends get their results as well and share this happiness.
It has been a big challenge this year, but we really got together and discussed how to have solutions to these problems and didn’t let anything stand in our way. I’d like to thank all my teachers, they’ve all shown me how to deal with the subjects and love what I’m studying, and because of this I think my performance turned out as well it did.

There are still changes in the future that I will have to prepare for as I step into university and adult life, but I feel that these two years have prepared me on how to cope with change, and I feel that I will have the skills I need to succeed. Leaving school is bittersweet; I won’t be able to sit in these classrooms anymore and have fun with my friends, but I am looking forward to the future, and I hope to come back and meet my old friends and teachers and show them where I’ve got to in life.”

Across IBDP, IBCP and IB courses, students have achieved the highest results recorded at the school, with all headline figures far exceeding the IBO world averages, and three IBDP students achieving a perfect score of 45.

I was definitely hoping for a 45, and that’s exactly what I’ve got, so I’m really happy! Now that I’ve got my grades, I’ve decided that I’m going to Stanford University in the US. And although I haven’t decided what major, I’ll probably be looking at Computer Science or Physics, or some sort of blend between the two. I’d like to thank all the teachers here at WIS and all the support staff, who have been incredibly supportive and encouraging throughout the years, and this is definitely something I couldn’t have achieved without their support. Moving on to university is going to be a new challenge with a lot of new responsibilities, new opportunities and experiences to make. But it’s a challenge I’m looking forward to.”

Chetan Nair, Age 19, Score 45, GEMS Wellington International School

“I’ll be going to the US to study Mathematics and Computer Science. I’d like to thank all my teachers, especially my maths teacher, for supporting me through this journey.

To achieve record results, especially with such a high percentage of students achieving 40+ points and four students achieving a perfect 45 points, is phenomenal.

GEMS World Academy Dubai

“Our IB results are a remarkable measure of the resilience, fortitude and grit of our students. For the last two years they have had a very disrupted educational provision due to the heart-breaking pandemic. Throughout most of their studies they have had to work within very tight and restrictive protocols to ensure they remained safe and secure while studying. Face masks, social distancing and the huge reorganisation of the school’s day-to-day work have added a layer of complexity and difficulty to their studies. So, it is with enormous pride and pleasure that I can report the terrific success of our students, who have shown that despite these disruptions they have the attitude and character to overcome all barriers.”

“I am thrilled to see that all the time, hard work and sweat I have put into not only my final two years of IB, but all 12 years has paid off. It has been an intense rollercoaster of high moments and low and knowing that I have achieved the results I have worked so hard to get makes me immensely proud of myself. I am happy that I can make my parents and friends proud as well, and I must thank them for the continuous support they have provided that has helped me to achieve these results. Moreover, being able to go to the university I wanted to because I was motivated and remained dedicated has made even the low moments worth it. Although leaving the school phase of my life behind has been sad, I am excited for the new adventures to come in university, and I am grateful for the help Greenfield International School has provided along the way.”
