Key performance indicators

Last updated:

The financial year 2018-2019 saw continued growth in the number of all IB programmes across all regions. The numbers of Diploma Programme (DP) candidates and Career-related Programme (CP) candidates increased, as did the numbers taken in both programmes. Furthermore, the pass rates for DP candidates have remained broadly the same high level as they have for many years. This underlines that the excellent quality of teaching at IB World Schools is being maintained as the IB grows.
