I am in IB and am wondering how the marking schemes work? (Levels 1-7 and the Bell curve). Would love some responses! I am very curious to know how the bell curve works as I heard one student got her 78 curved to a 97?

Take a look at the statistics bulletin for May 2016. Different subjects have different distributions in scores. In that way, IB doesn't adhere to traditional curving. On an IB assignment, generally you score between 1-7.

How you get graded on the 0-100 scale for non-official IB assignments and your IA's is entirely up to your teachers and school. IB doesn't preside over that.
