Is 45 really the max point? Is it possible to get 46!?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

I have heard this thing, about how the IB once awarded one girl (who had already recieved 45 points) an extra point (a total of 46 points thus) because she had written such an amazing EE, or something like that.

For a while I was even under the impression of that a few people recieve 46 points every year, but it doesn't seem to have been mentioned anywhere on the internet, so I suppose I am incorrect.

Is all of this just a urban legend, or did someone really recieve 46 points once? I'd love to hear more, if anyone knows about this person who recieved an extra point!

Definitely not possible. The highest you can get is 45 (you get three bonus points from your EE and ToK, and the rest of your subjects total to 42 points. So 42 + 3 = 45!)

You can achieve above 45 if you do an additional subject. However you've not scored above 45 for the Diploma, you've just got 45 points for the Diploma plus X points for a certificate.
