As our Year 13 International Baccalaureate (IB) students gear up for the fast-approaching finals, they can take immense pride in the outstanding university offers they have secured—a testament to their meticulous preparation, academic prowess, and well-defined career aspirations. This year's cohort exhibits a particularly strong inclination towards Business and the 'Science of numbers', as evidenced by their numerous study choices in Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science.
Our students have received multiple offers from prestigious European Business Schools, such as the top-ranked ESSEC Business School and ESCP Europe in France. Moreover, offers have been made by esteemed members of the UK's Russell Group, which is renowned for its high-quality research and teaching programmes. Among these offers are an acceptance from Warwick University, with its distinguished Mathematics faculty, for the subject MORSE (Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics, and Economics), and the University of Bristol for Chemistry.
Apart from Business, Chemistry, Computer Engineering, Economics, Psychology, Physics, and Science programmes, our students have also chosen to pursue newer disciplines, including Environmental Studies, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning. The latter two subjects have garnered offers from the University of Edinburgh, the University of Sheffield, Cardiff University, and the University of Liverpool—all esteemed members of the Russell Group.
Notable offers from Greater China include those from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST)—both regarded as Hong Kong's top institutions with impressive global rankings. Meanwhile, across the Pacific in the United States, our students have secured offers from the highly regarded Purdue University and the elite liberal arts institution Middlebury College, one of the 'Little Ivies' known for its academic rigour and selective admissions. Furthermore, the University of Toronto remains a popular choice among YCIS students, as it is consistently ranked among the best universities in Canada and the world. Our students have received offers in Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Psychology, Economics, Computer Engineering, and Statistics from these distinguished universities.
We wholeheartedly congratulate our students on their exceptional university offers and eagerly anticipate their entry into university life. We wish them every success in their finals and all their subsequent academic pursuits!
