The School of the Arts (Sota) handed out the results for the International Baccalaureate (IB) exam to their students at 2pm on Monday.

The school, which saw its second batch of 110 students take the exam in November, attained an average of 39.18 points out of a maximum 45, compared to the Singapore average of 36.53 and global average of 29.95. More than half of Sota students scored between 40 and 45 points, with 26 of them getting top scores of 42 and more.

There were 43 perfect scorers in Singapore, with the bulk coming from Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) which had 32 of them.

Singapore emerged top - for the fourth year running - among countries in Asia-Pacific which took part in the exam. There are 20 schools here which offer the IB programme, including international schools.
