"In an unprecedented, tumultuous year for the IB, we're pleased that this year's overall results at Tanglin are on a par with our historical achievements. Once again, our students' scores show breadth of achievement across an academically diverse cohort, as well as some outstanding individual performances." Allan Forbes, Head of Senior School
Craig Considine, CEO of Tanglin Trust School said: "These results reflect the considerable hard work, commitment and effort of our students who over the past two years have undertaken a 4,000-word self-researched essay on a topic of their choice and an independently managed project as part of the school's Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) programme, in addition to studying six specific subjects. Every one of our IB graduates should be proud of their achievements, not just the results, but also the tenacity they have shown in overcoming this year's unique challenges. Our students are now equipped to take responsibility for their own learning and engage meaningfully in real-world situations."
We must also thank our dedicated, resourceful and enthusiastic teachers, many of whom are IB Diploma leaders, for supporting our students in finding their passions and realising their potential. Special recognition should also be given to the close parent-teacher cooperation at Tanglin that has helped to support our examination year groups more than ever this year.
We congratulate each of our IB Diploma graduates on their results, many of whom have secured their first choice at top universities around the world. We wish them every success as lifelong learners who have the skills to contribute with confidence to our world.
