  1. Hello, I am currently at a school running the IB diploma for the first time ever and my grade has become the Guinea pigs. This is fine but students are convinced that the school is not running it properly. At the moment, my predicted grades are a concern. In french class, my teacher has not converted any of our grades from IB to the regular diploma scores. In addition, she is not weighting the ib-styled exams as much as content for the province’s curriculum. Meanwhile in math class, my ib-styled exam was higher, so was my IA and so is the mean of all my tests and assignments this year. I have risen my math mark up 20% since the beginning even though before this year they did nothing ib (did not mark ib, no ib tests, no ib times for tests etc). How are they getting their marks?! What can I do?!

  3. Well, is it possible? I get good okayish grades in every other subject, but I'm bound to get a 1 in math studies. I've worked hard in math but I'm just not a math kind of guy, and I've heard a sufficient grade average makes up for a 1 in math, but I've seen people on here claim a single 1 keeps you from getting the diploma. Can I get a final verdict?
  4. SOoooo I being open here is the IB always this hard. I'm a year 1 and I'm 2 months into school. So far I am doing terrible in all of my classes except Mandarin SL. Can anyone else relate to the first few months being rough annnnnnndddd how do I get out of this bad grade slump because I've NEVER gotten the kind of grades I'm getting right now, like ever, in my life. It gets better right? Because if yes, how did ya'll do it??
  5. Hello everybody, So i did the IB exams may 2017 and I ended up with a final result of 27 points which I am quite pleased with considering how I really struggled throughout the programme and was predicted to fail. However, the only grade I don't like is the grade 2 I got in Maths SL. I really regret taking SL and wish would have taken Studies instead. I am actually going to resit Maths SL and although I have studied, it has been a struggle to do so independently. I am interested in applying for UK unis in 2019 and I have found several unis that accept 27 points. (I want to study architecture). Anyway, my question is, if I don't manage to get a better grade, can they overlook my 2 in Maths? I am thankful for your answers.
  6. hey, this is my first post so im kind of not sure how to write these. i was looking at groningen univesity to study physics and im confused on the requirments. my clases are: Math, History, English A lang lit = HL Physics,French Ab, ITGS = SL so im not sure if i can do the course without Physics HL. I cant chnage because of the way my schools time table is set up. if i cant, are there any other good Physics Bachelor programms in europe where i can apply with Physics Sl? cause, from what i understand, Math Hl is more important because Physics is very math based.
  7. Will my final IBDP Grades be purely based on the final assessments, EE, TOK and IA's or will my term grades also impact my final grades?
  8. So I have been in the IB Program since kindergarten and now I am in 9th grade at the IB High School and they kick people out but I have seen the seniors class of 2018 most of them have and hair grades below an 80 in Mississippi you must maintain in 80 or above in IB. I have a 71 average in Spanish and a 57 average in geometry but I haven't 80 in above and all of my six classes. Im not sure if i will pass this semester. They have to give probation letters before they kick you out. They always said 2nd term they give letter amd they kick you out come Christmas. But once a again their are seniors thah have failed more than 1 IB class since their High school IB career. But ny school does kick people out. Can anyone explain is it selective?
  9. I got a really low grade the first year of IB (28 points) and I'm wondering if it is possible and has it been done before that someone has improved their final ib score to around the middle-high 30's (34-38). For my grades I achieved scores of 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 2 - 2. The subjects I got 2's in were physics HL and math SL. Is it possible to perform a comeback in the IB from the first year? Thanks for your time.
  10. Hello there! I'm currently struggling with the tok essay , i chose the 5th prescribed tittle 'the best explanation is the simplest explanation' .since it is necessary for the maximum grade to have ''a sustained focus on knowledge questions connected to the prescribed title—developed with investigation of different perspectives and linked effectively to areas of knowledge and/or ways of knowing.'' this is not clear enough since i read reports about the tok essay that said many students didnt use knowledge questions properly , plus we dont have anyone that can help us with tok in the highschool ,if you know how to use them in the essay could you explain them please?
  11. Hi I want to know if i will pass my ib diploma if for example i get a total of more than 24 points, and 3 of my higher level subjects add up to 12 or more points, but one of my higher level subject scores a level 3, will i still get my diploma? Please help
  12. so im in 11th grade right now, and currently i take HL Chem - 3 HL bio - 3 Hl psychology - 6 Sl Math - 3 Spanish abinitio - 5 TOK - 3 SL English lang/lit - 4 I know these are pretty bad grades and i am wondering if i will be able to pass the ib diploma programme. Should i be worried about the threes? I feel like the grades wont get any better. Anyone know what I should do?

    Opinions?!

    So I applied for the Pre-IB program and personally think it's a good program for me. The school that I'm applying to (Turner Fenton SS in Ontario) does not have an entrance exam.All you have to do is submit your Grade 7 final report card results, your Grade 8 progress report card, and answer 2 questions.1. Choose one IB learning profile characteristic that best describes you.Explain why. 2. How are you going to make the world a better place? (not exact question) I believe that my responses were one of the best paragraphs I wrote in my life, so I'm not worried about them. I mentioned that I recently came in second place in my provincial spelling bee, and hopefully, that'll help me out. I'm worried about my Grade 7 final report card ruining things for me.Last year, due to my horrible math/sci/homeroom teacher, I got a 74% average in math (I've been getting straight A's in math for my whole life) and a 71% in science (I have gotten better grades in science, but it's not one of my strongest subjects) the rest of my marks were all 84's and up (except for drama) and were especially good in Language, History/Geography and French. I calculated my "academic" average (Math, Science, History/Geo, Language, French) and got an 80% as my average. My homeroom/sci/math teacher also burdened me with G's (only 2 E's) in the learning skills category. (I've been getting E's my whole life) My Grade 8 progress report card is amazing though, (progressing VERY well in everything but drama) and so are my learning skills (all excellent). So do you think I at least have a fair chance of getting accepted? What do you think they will look more closely at? (my final Grade 7 report card, Grade 8 progress report card or application?) Any opinions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  14. I am in an IB middle school, but im trying to calculate my grades during the quarter. I just do not remember each number for the 8 point scale. 8=100 I think, 5 might be 54 or 56. Help
  15. Hey so I was wondering if there were any IB resource banks for videos and TOK topics in Maths. I'm in my first year and cant seem to find any. Due to this I've kind of lost out on marks. So could someone please help me out thank you

    Predicted Grades

    What are your predicted grades based on and when will it be out??
  17. Hi guys, I currently have a 6 from German B SL. My Paper 2's are usually moving around 20 to 22 points out of 25, so basically a 6, however my huge weakness is the Paper 1, which I sometimes even get a 4 on. I have a question. I cannot seem to understand how I can prepare or improve my skills in the Paper 1's, do you guys have any special techniques or any tips? My MYP German teacher was completely useless and I feel I am catching up everything in these two years. I am graduating soon, so any feedback would be appreacited. By the way, I have a lot of vocabulary papers, concerning Grammar as well. Thanks for your help, any feedback or help appreciated.
  18. Hi! I'm a Chemistry student currently undergoing corrections for my IA draft. I just really really REALLY need help on what the points to IB grades are. For example, how many points do I need to score from the overall rubric in order to barely reach a 7? How about 6? and so on and so forth. Thanks!
  19. Hey guys. I found this scale online for converting IB scores to GPA: 7 = 4.0 6 = 3.7 5 = 3 4 = 2.3 I was wondering how accurate this is. I've got a GPA of 3.85 according to this (39/42 in my first year finals). Does that sound right? The thing is I'm not sure how this would take into account EE and TOK. If anyone has an 'official' scale to convert IB points to GPA, please let me know.
  20. Hi everyone, My research question for my IA is: What is the correlation between the number of hours of sleep and academic performance in mathematics? I know with this I will be able to get more points in personal engagement but I'm worried it's too simple for mathematical knowledge and I'm afraid my teacher might reject this topic. Are there any ways to increase the complexity of the topic and what kinds of maths/equations would I be able to do with the statistics/data I collect? Thank you in advance for your help!
  21. If one gets 7's on the IA's and 5 on the External exams --> what will the final score be?
  22. Can anybody give me some information about how the IB grades? I heard that assessments were out of 8 but final grades were out of 7? I'm not sure how it works. Thanks
  23. I was just called in by the principal to talk about my grades. My semester 1 reports shows that I achieved total points of 31 excluding bonus points, and semester 2 it dropped to 26 points. He recommended that I consider dropping my IB and just get into college with a regular diploma. Im thinking of going to school in Canada. What do you guys think? My teachers think that I can regain my points in the beginning of 12th grade and I think so too and I would hate to be the only one not taking IB while all my friends are.
  24. Hey , so I am starting the IB this September and I want to get into a university in the UK. And I wonder, whether they look at the grades you had before IB? Last school year I had quite serious health issues which resulted into more than 70% absence at school and very bad grades - including Cs and Ds. This school year my grades are quite average, depending on the effort I put in now they can result into either As and a few Bs (even straight As if I rewrite a few exams) or a mixture of As, Bs and Cs. I can prove the health issues from last year, but I have no excuse for this years grades. Do you think its worth the effort or should I just let it slip as its the last month of the school year? This depends very much on whether the unis consider these grades as well. Do they consider them? Are bad grades before IB an disadvantage if they choose between your and another applicant with the same IB score? Thank you all. PS: We don't do GCSE or anything like that in the country I live in (which is currently not Israel). We only get normal school report cards.
