You need 24 [?] points to receive an IB diploma, however I do not really understand your question about the tests..

Mmm. More clarification on the test bit, please.

And here's some info you probably knew already: maximum overall score is 45; maximum subject score is 7, and a fail in a subject is a 2 or below. If you fail any single subject, or don't complete CAS, you don't receive a diploma.

IB is challenging, but a good choice in the long run (if you're up for it).

Min total points: 12
Min points in HLs: 12
Min points in SL: 9

Need a 4 to pass Math SL / Math HL.
Only one SL subject may be a 2 to get a diploma.

you need a total of 24 points to get the diploma, but along with these conditions:
12+ points at HL
9+ points at SL
No HL can get a 2
No SL can get a 1
No more than 2 grades 2 (so you can't get two 2s in 2 SL subjects)

There's a whole host of other conditions somewhere, including those about CAS, EE etc.

Scoring for SL and HL are just different in that the mark boundaries for SL is a little lower and they expect a little less at SL.
