Students take written examinations at the end of the programme for each of their six subject group courses (at either higher level or standard level), which are marked by external IB examiners. Students also complete assessment tasks in the school:
Students will ultimately receive a score from 1-7 (with 7 being the highest) on each of their six subjects based on the internal and external assessments and the final IB examination scores. Students may also be rewarded up to three additional points based on their performance on the TOK external assessment and the extended essay.
The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole programme and to satisfactory participation in the CAS requirement. The highest total that a Diploma Programme student can be awarded is 45 points (scoring a 7 in all six IB subjects and gaining the 3 additional points).
Specific information about the processes and fees associated with the IB DP assessments are explained in the May 2021 Registration Document. Any questions about these fees should be directed to the IB DP Coordinator, James Davis. May 2021 registrations need to be completed by Nov. 2, 2020.
