IB language B mark boundaries november 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I have a question concerning the mark boundaries for language B. I saw that getting a 7 in most of the B languages (bar english) in TZ2 (europe) was over 85. Is it the general trend that TZ2 have higher grade boundaries since most of the B languages are native to TZ2 or is it beacause of the new course that we need to achieve way higher grades for the 7?

Cheers.

I believe that for the new course it's much harder to achieve a 7. That said it seems to be easier to get 5s and 6s.

Just a heads up, for more common languages like Spanish, French, and English taken at the B level, there's more than one time zone, and this means that the paper for time zone 1 is different from time zone 2. Time zone 2's mark boundaries can't really be compared to time zone 1 because of that. Time zone 2 isn't necessarily harder or easier to get a 7 in, the two exams are supposed to be of comparable difficulty, with the mark boundaries being adjusted in either direction as necessary.
