Islamabad, Pakistan – August 02, 2022: Globally, 89,201 International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) students received their eAssessment (e-Portfolios and on-screen examinations), and personal projects results, from the May 2022 examination session. This included 165 students from Pakistan.
The MYP is currently offered at 9 schools in Pakistan for the May 2022 examination session, over 240 IB World Schools in 59 countries participated in the optional MYP eAssessment, representing a 13.4% increase in registrations. The students who registered for the full MYP certificate received an average score of 37.72 points (out of 56 possible maximum). The point average in Pakistan was 40.06.
The eAssessments are based at the end of each programme and combines ePortfolios of coursework with media-rich on-screen examinations that enable creative responses, or responses that require students to manipulate data and present new understandings, using much more dynamic methods than on paper.
Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Director General of the International Baccalaureate, said: “Our students have shown outstanding resilience and dedication to learning. I am immensely proud of all our students for reaching this milestone. They have built a solid foundation that will enable them to embark on their next educational journey.”
“On behalf of the entire IB family, I would like to thank our global community of IB World Schools, educators, and teachers for the tremendous efforts and hard work for the benefit of our IB students,” she added.
Targeted at students aged between 11 to 16, the MYP is recognised as being equal to the Secondary School Certificate by the Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC), Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training. The curriculum’s framework is based upon the differing approaches to learning; key and related concepts; and independent learning projects in which students are required to complete a significant piece of work over a period of time. The programme has eight subjects with Urdu recently being added to the IB MYP eAssessment.
