American English or British English?

Recommended Posts

This question may come across as a tad stupid, but having noticed the fact that IB uses American English in its papers, I couldn't help but wonder if British English is acceptable. All my spellings are British and my manner of writing tends to be slightly more quaint than my American counterparts.

Edit: Typo

You can use whichever you want, although I'd stick to either one or the other throughout just for the sake of consistency.

I certainly used British English (...naturally!) without penalty.

Umm....they don't use American English. :P Otherwise, like HiggsHunter said, they wouldn't be spelling program "programme," color "colour," etc. But they don't penalize for using American English over British English, or vice versa.

Just pick one (British or American spellings) and be consistent with it.
