Perfect scorer triumphed at Victoria Shanghai Academy again!
The International Baccalaureate results released tonight has again proven Victoria Shanghai Academy to be a top IB school in Hong Kong.
Again this year, a senior student at Victoria Shanghai Academy (VSA) has achieved a perfect IB score of 45 points in the 2015/16 IB Diploma results. Leung Shek-Ming Angus has been a consistent all-rounder at VSA, participating actively in VSA’s Model United Nations (MUN) and Junior Achievements Programme. Leung plans to pursue an education in Global Business Studies in The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
“This is a pleasant surprise for me,” remarks Leung “I am grateful to VSA, my family and friends for their support.”
With their declared results, two other top VSA IB graduates, Edward Tsui and Derek Yeung, are to continue what is now becoming a tradition at VSA – to send at least one student a year to Oxford. Tsui has decided to accept the offer to study law at Oxford University whilst Yeung will study Physics at the UK’s famous institution. Apart from focusing on academic work, Tsui developed his leadership skills through his responsibilities as the Head Boy. Yeung, on the other hand, proved a good all-rounder through his commitment to tennis and ball hockey.
As in previous years, VSA students have once again achieved high scores in the 2016 IB DP examinations. More than half the students in this year’s cohort received a score of 36 or above. This is considerably higher than the approximate global mean score of 30.07. 13 VSA graduates in total achieved at least 40 points in their IB results.
“The resounding success of VSA students on the IB Diploma examinations again this year is a tribute to our students’ commitment and our teachers’ dedication.” remarks Dr. Judith Guy, Head of Academy, Victoria Shanghai Academy. “The close alignment of VSA curriculum and philosophy with IB principles and practices ensures that VSA remains a top IB school in Hong Kong.”
VSA’s graduating class are set to establish themselves further as global transnationals as they take up their world, including King’s College London, University of Leeds, Durham University in United Kingdom; UCLA, New York University; Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia in Canada; Curtin University and University of Sydney in Australia; and University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in Hong Kong.
