How hard is it to get an A in IB classes?

Recommended Posts

Umm it really depends on your strengths, but imo, it's not impossible if you put the work in (just saying though, it takes so much time and effort). I'm pulling 90%+ in all my classes so far and my marks did not drop that much coming from pre-IB. You should be fine if you work hard.

Depends, how easy/hard do your teachers make the classes? What score is needed to get an A? How good are you at these subjects?

This question has no answer that can actually be given.

It depends on the person and the school. Of those classes, given those levels, I'd say the majority of people would say Math HL is the hardest in that group. If you're an expert on math, it might be easy, but otherwise it's very difficult. But, that doesn't mean an A is impossible.

 

My school, also in the USA, uses a grading curve to transfer IB grades to the letter grade scale. Obviously, getting a 50/100 is pretty good on most IB assignments, but on the American scale it's pretty terrible. So, my school changes it. If yours does something like that, As are probably just as doable as a full course-load of AP classes. If not, then it might be impossible.

My school uses a curve as well. Also, most of the things we do aren't graded on the IB scale. It's really dependent on how much time and effort you are willing to put forth into your work.

seeing as you're a 2017 student, if you stay on top of things right from the start, you'll be able to ace your tests. As soon as you fall behind though, it becomes hard to get As because the subjects are difficult and time consuming
