The IB is immensely proud of all IB students who have reached this milestone. Throughout the DP and CP two-year learning journey students have acquired the knowledge and skills to thrive and make a difference in the world.

Todays’ IB graduates join a community of 2.5 million lifelong learners across 156 countries worldwide. The global average DP score for the May 2024 session is 30.32 points.

Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Director General of the International Baccalaureate, said: “It is always an honour to congratulate IB graduates on all their achievements, and this year their results are nothing short of praiseworthy. From the beginning, the IB has been providing an international, holistic education to inspire future leaders and peace builders. This cohort has demonstrated this commitment, and I am delighted to see so many of them moving confidently on to the next chapter of their lives equipped with the future-ready skills and compassion that define IB learners.”

The Diploma Programme (DP) gives the student a world-class preparation for university and a lifetime of opportunity. It is a comprehensive inquiry-based education that puts the student in control of their learning, so they can develop superior academic ability, confidence, critical-thinking and language skills. This challenging framework is recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities and aims to develop the whole student, and flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.

The Career-related Programme (CP) is specifically designed for students aged 16–19 who wish to engage in career-related learning, while also continuing to gain transferable and lifelong skills like confidence, social responsibility and a sense of purpose. The CP is an innovative blend of academic study and career skills that incorporates the vision and educational principles of the IB into a unique programme.

For the May 2024 examination session, DP and CP students completed all assessment components for each subject and the IB awarded grades using all components, coursework and examinations.
