missed diploma by 1 point!

Recommended Posts

It depends. One of my friends failed but was still accepted into university. You should call up your university and check with them, or you could resit the subject that failed you.

I missed the diploma by 1 point! what happens now? I'm accepted for a college in the USA so will they still take me? I am planning to go for regrading and maybe retakes but will a college accept me with no diploma? will having no diploma be a burden on me in the future?

pls reply!!!

thanks :(

You got a diploma from the school also probably (we get gold medallion during graduation, it's out schools honor diploma, then IB is like...extra...). I think the school should still let you in just fine because honestly the IB and the USA don't always get along so even though you didn't get the diploma you should check their admissions site and see if you got credit for any of your scores (usually a 5+ will get you credit).

You should ask for your mark break downs, and if you were really close a higher grade, like you were 1% or 2% off of a 5 in Chemistry SL/HL I would suggest getting a re-mark. That way, if it is re-marked and you end up getting a 5 for example, then you will get your diploma!

Probably not honestly. You have a high school diploma, just not the IB one. And if it's remarked there is no guarantee you'll get another point BUT, if you don't at least you tried, if you do WOO, and if it goes down (it is possible) then it really doesn't change anything. Point to all that was why not? You aren't losing anything but some money and you might gain the diploma which was the whole point for 2 years...

I would assume so. Never dumb to e-mail them to found out though :)

Well there is no "C" in IB except for Tok and the EE, may I ask what college you are going to? Might be able to find some stuff for you.

well im one mark away from a higher grade in English and French, I think I'll reevaluate and since i'm at the higher end of the mark boundary, I cant go down :)

I don't think that you get college credit for EE and TOK in the US, if that's what you were asking. Sorry. :(

But you will for your IB exams. :)

Depending on the University, you'll get college credit for the IB exams you passed.

The higher the score, the better the credit. :)

Also, the credits they give and exams they accept vary by University.

Hey, I have an almost identical problem. just received the breakdown grades, but they don't indicate anything with percentages. How do I know which are the grade boundaries and how many % I missed?

Use last year's. Only 1-2 pts difference usually.

You can make your EE be marked again, if that can make you get 24.

I don't think it really matters, some friends got a 20/45 and they still got accepted to university.

Good luck!

Sorry to intervene but I just wanted to disclaim this. I know someone who got a scholarship to MIT for his Physics EE :rolleyes:

Anyone know where/when IB will release the mark boundaries for May 2011 exams? can't seem to find it...
