Under extremely challenging circumstances, ESF students have performed outstandingly, producing the strongest set of results ever since schools in the ESF system started the International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum in 2009.

Sixty-three students (updated on 30 July) attained the maximum possible score of 45 points, 82 students also scored 44 points, 90 students 43 points and overall, 914 students gained their IB Diploma – at a 99.2% achievement rate.

“These results are a bright beacon of hope and a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our ESF students,” said Belinda Greer, ESF’s Chief Executive Officer.

“The IB Diploma is an academically rigorous qualification, made even more so by the continuing difficulties faced by Hong Kong and the rest of the world. All of our students have done extremely well.

“ESF as well as parents, families and friends are so proud – and justifiably so,” she added.

ESF’s full results are below:

[1] Worldwide results for the IB Diploma are for May 2020, as the full 2021 data is not available until November. Statistics show that these percentages vary very little year on year.


ESF’s new Chair, Dr Kim Mak, joined Belinda Greer in congratulating the students:

“I am deeply impressed with all our students this year and want to offer my congratulations to each and every one of them as well as sending heartfelt thanks to all the ESF teachers for their efforts and determination.”
