I retook my math exam this year's session, as I got 2. Furthermore, I got C for EE and E for TOK last year, since I took part in the May '14 session. Does the rules apply to me, which would actually mean that I'm failing the Diploma? It's so confusing ... 

 

PS I'm having 24 points now, 

Sadly, I dont really think that you can obtain IB diploma in this condition. You retake the TOK right ?

Can the EE in anyway affect the amount of points you recieve?

Yes. It, along with ToK, can give you an additional 1, 2, or 3 points depending on the grade combination.

Can extra points from the EE and TOK be applied anywhere you are deficient or do they only apply to SL?

I don't really understand your question. EE/TOk aka bonus points, contribute to your total score. They don't add up to your subject grades. So your subject grades make up the 42/45 points. The maximum you can get from your subjects is 42/42. Then, on top of that, you can get 0-3 points extra from your EE and TOK grades.

hi

Okay so i just completed my IB exams in May 2016. These are my results;

5,5,4 (PSYCHOLOGY, ENGLISH AND ECONOMICS HL)

5,5,4 (ESS, MATH STUDIES SL, FRENCH AB INITIO )

i got a B grade in TOK and an E in my extended essay psychology.

However, they did not give me a Diploma, and all this while i thought it was because of my EE, however, looking through the guides and other sources i feel like there is a mistake?

am i eligible for a diploma? i have given for reevaluation, and my university has also withdrawn their offer on the basis that i haven't "successfully completed the IB Diploma".

please help.

Sorry for the late reply, but I'm afraid that you will not be granted the diploma according to the new IB failing/passing criteria (published in April 2014). If you look at this document: http://www.ibo.org/globalassets/publications/become-an-ib-school/dp-general-regulations-en.pdf under Article 13, then you'll see that one of the requirements for getting a diploma is: "There is no grade E awarded for theory of knowledge and/or the extended essay". Since you got an E in the extended essay, you will not be awarded with the diploma.

In that case, I recommend you apply for regrade on your EE, as that is the only barrier from getting a diploma. Talk to your coordinator about regrading.

Quite simply getting a 1 in your overall score out of 7 in an IB subject is getting a Grade 1. That's what they mean.

I might be asking something that's already been answered but just so I'm sure, getting a 1 over all means getting a final score of 1 on your IB subject but getting a 1 on the final exam doesn't mean you won't pass as long your internal assessment and stuff bring the overall grade back up right?

That's right. IB awards grades based on a weighted average of raw grades. In fact every year, IB first make the overall grade boundaries before looking at grade boundaries for IAs or a specific paper. The individual assessment grade boundaries are only to guide students on how they did compared to others and those are not used to calculate grades at all.

Hey Guys, by getting  a total score of more than 28 and a score of 12 in three HLs guarantee a Diploma? (even if you get a 3 in one HL two 6s in the others?)
