Following in the footsteps of previous cohorts, the Aga Khan Academy Mombasa’s Class of 2020 received record-breaking results in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) this year. In addition to the Academy once again scoring highly, the percentage of top scorers was also above the global average– with nine students scoring an outstanding 40 points and above. Of these, two students Muskaan Baidhani and Alisha Doshi scored an impressive 44 points out of a possible 45.
The cohort of 67 students achieved an average score of 34.9, well above last year’s global average of 29.7. These results represent a particularly remarkable achievement, considering the rapidly-changing global circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Class of 2020 completed their DP coursework through an online learning platform, along with the encouragement and support of their teachers.
Adapting to change and rising to challenges comes naturally to Academies students. “The intentionally rigorous environment at the Academy forced me to step out of my comfort zone, every day. To choose courage over comfort, always. To not just go with the flow, but to be the flow,” said Muskaan Baidhani, one of the top-scoring students of the cohort.
