What is the European Baccalaureate, and what is the pass rate?

The EB is the leaving qualification for the European Schools, officially recognised by the member-states of the EU. It comes at the end of a two-year programme that allows pupils to enter higher education, college or university. As it is a two-year programme, students cannot join the school just for the final year, unless they are transferring from another European School. The pass rate in the EB is between 95-100%, and if a pupil fails they usually repeat the year and are succesful.
