At least seven students from two schools in Hong Kong have scored perfect marks on the International Baccalaureate this year, with more schools expected to announce their results later.
Despite the cancelation of exams due to Covid-19, this year's IB marks were released today and two local schools - St Paul's Co-educational College and Diocesan Boys' School - have announced four and three candidates, respectively, that obtained the maximum score of 45. Both schools each saw nine students earning 44 marks as well.
Charles Wu Kar-lun, IB Program Coordinator at Diocesan Boys' School, said the school had achieved its best-ever overall marks, with all 60 IB students obtaining 30 or more. Among them, 70 percent obtained more than 40 marks, giving the school a total average of 41 marks.
