Aldar Academies celebrates a third year of rising IB results

Abu Dhabi, UAE, July 16th, 2018: Aldar Academies, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain’s leading private education provider, is celebrating a third consecutive year of rising International Baccalaureate Diploma results at Al Bateen Academy.


The Abu Dhabi school recorded an average point score of 32.2 – well beyond the world average of 29.6, and a pass rate of 90 percent, which comfortably surpasses the global average of 78 percent. The world-beating averages were celebrated for a third consecutive year, and come as the school’s cohort also grew by 23 percent.


India’s Ananya Sini Achan recorded the school’s highest individual point score to date with a score of 44 out of 45, while Britain’s Faith Muir earned a score of 42. Canada’s Laith Najim and India’s Vandita Ritolia also reached the 40-point mark to stand among the school’s top performers. Among all Al Bateen Academy IB Diploma graduates, the entire female cohort and all UAE students recorded a 100 percent pass rate. Ahmed Al Shomali and Hazza AlSuwaidi recorded the highest marks among Al Bateen Academy’s Emirati students with scores of 29.


“It feels great. I was so surprised to achieve my predicted grade that I asked my parents to check the results for me - I thought they’d made a mistake,” Commented Ananya Achan, who plans to study mathematics at UCLA. “Self-discipline and sacrifice were key to my success. I wanted a social life but I also had a vision for what I wanted to achieve. I didn’t want to leave thinking I could have done better.” She added.


“It’s extremely satisfying to get these results after working so hard. It meant the world to me that all the effort has paid off.” Commented Faith Muir, who’s aiming to study architecture at the University of Bath. “I owe a lot to my teachers, friends and family for keeping me motivated during the tough times, and it was my teachers who helped shape my positive work ethic that balanced studies and life.” She added.

“We’re delighted to report another record-breaking set of IB Diploma results, especially as our cohort size increased this year,” commented David Hutson, Aldar Academies Al Bateen Academy Principal. “The IB Diploma continues to grow in relevance as a globally-focused study pathway, and it’s hugely satisfying to see our students graduate with their sights set on the leading universities worldwide. Congratulations to all our fantastic students!” Added Mr Hutson.


Past Al Bateen Academy alumni have gone on to study at the likes of UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), University of Bristol, and New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), among others, as the qualification is highly regarded by higher education institutions across the world.


“The IB Diploma programme and the skills it builds in our students – those of critical thinking, open mindedness, and global responsibility - are fundamental to the UAE’s growth plans,” Commented Nilay Özral, Aldar Academies CEO. “That’s why it is so rewarding to see our students excel for another year, because our goal remains to empower them to shape our future.” Added Ms Özral.
