Growth and Self-Discovery: Two Perfect Scorers Reflect on Their Time at YCIS
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s IB exams were cancelled and final grades were awarded based on coursework, predicted grades and historical assessment data from schools. The uncertainties surrounding the unprecedented situation was definitely a cause for great concern for many students in Hong Kong and across the globe. It was therefore a surreal moment for students Isabella Yao and Christy Yuen of Yew Chung International School (YCIS) when both found out they achieved a perfect score of 45 points for their International Baccalaureate (IB) exams. Christy was also awarded the Bilingual Diploma for studying English and Chinese at native-speaking level, in which she gained top marks. In terms of post-secondary education, Isabella will pursue Medicine at the University of Hong Kong on a prestigious scholarship, and Christy has made the wise decision to take a gap year to further explore her own interests.
