IB Diploma Top Achievers 2023

Nine learners scored above 40 points (out of 45 points), placing them in the top percentile of choice for university admissions. The school prides itself in helping its learners in scholarship applications to their university of choice through the guidance of a dedicated Higher Education Counsellor and has, to date, won more than USD 1 million in scholarships for its 2023 cohort. Further to this, more than half of Nexus IBDP top achievers are long term learners at Nexus (more than 2 years with the school), and some who have been with the school since Early Years and Primary School.

As an inclusive school, the graduating 2023 cohort this year came from diverse countries and backgrounds as well, which enriches the experience of IB learners.

“Achieving the perfect score of 45 has been a surreal experience and, honestly speaking, was an achievement I didn’t expect. However, this showed me that my resilience and hard work during the past 2 years have paid off. At Nexus, I was also able to take advantage of the myriad of co-curricular opportunities that complemented my academic studies. I believe such holistic education provided a good work-life balance that was, ultimately, the key to my success. Finally, I also want to thank my family, friends, and teachers who have continuously supported me and believed in me throughout my IB journey,” says Gerard.
