Hiya TykeDragon

 

You are indeed a God.

 

Why does the IB withhold this data?

 

My IB Coordinator has gone on holiday so I have no access.

 

Like SLG7 above I need to know TZ2 Psych HL asap.

 

Do you have an inside track to this tinfo?

 

Thanks in advance...

 

Ally

PS type in " IB 'class name' grade boundries" onto google and they should come up.

Unfortunately, these are last year's boundaries; they're all over the web. The averages for some subjects (like French B) went up, even more unfortunately...

I've just realised I'm 1% off a maths SL 7. They moderated our IAs 4 points down although I'm sure mine didn't deserve that... My life could've been so much easier with that one point more ;<

Hey Guys,

I am in a fix and require some advice.

 

I completed my IB in May 2013 and I applied for Indian universities and specifically asked for a grade transcript with percentage equivalent scores.

I found it odd when for the following subjects I got much lower grade points than I am supposed to get.

 

Physics HL  - 56% - 4

Chemistry HL - 61% - 4

Maths (Series and differential) HL - 37% - 2

English A: language and literature SL - 75% - 5

Hindi B SL - 74% - 5

ITGS SL - 86% - 6

 

I think I should get atleast a 7 in ITGS SL considering the fact that ITGS HL 7 is above 74%, and I doubt the other subjects are downgraded too!

Its kind of important so please help me out!
