DOES ANY SCHOOL IN SWEDEN OFFER NOVEMBER EXAM 2018?

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Because of personal reasons I couldn't sign up for the May Exam 2017 and I truly want to do the exam this year and I would appreciate if you could inform me about who could possibly offer November Exam 2018 in Sweden. 

Thank you in advance

According to the IB official records, there are 31 DP schools in Sweden. https://bit.ly/2EEXszD You can email them individually to see whether they do November exams.

Did you manage to find any schools in Sweden? if so I would like to know.

No, unfortunately. I called and emailed all IB schools here and no one seemed to offer November exams.

@Anton Odwong Check if they do November RETAKES. Schools don't have to be November sessions to offer retakes in November. The same website can be used to locate any IB World School.

Hey! Yeah I contacted every IB school in Sweden around May and I contacted them again in June but unfortunately no one offered November re-takes or Exams. But you can try, perhaps something changed! I do not know If there is a way to make it happen, maybe if we let them know that we would want to take the exams (if we are enough of students), they might think about it or so but I am not sure. @hk18

I had checked in several schools in several countries but the only two schools had said they offered November retakes, one was called worth school and it was in Gatwick I believe near London (however I think the deadline was 27th of July for this school but you can check just in case). Another one was called st Leonards in st Andrews Scotland. Those were the only two schools that said they would be able to accept retake candidates from outside their school. All other schools either didn't offer or it was only for their students.

So happy you found one!!! I wouldn't mind it being anywhere in Sweden but I dont think I could go to Norway (as you said it´s really expensive). Yet, I wonder which school, the price and if it was for re-takes or just normal Exams?

its UWC, university world college, its really known!! i totally forgot about it, its got normal registration price. and the price of accomodation. but ive tried all the private international schools in sweden. and ive tried all the danish ones, and the danish ones really dissapoint me because there is so much demand on the IB students especially with the grade boundaries where legit some students can get a 2 in one class but still get the 34 points, and still be rejected without an exception just because they got one 2 in their report, and be considered to have failed IB and then the school would not redo the exmas in november. it a real struggle in denmark. i reall hope you the best of luck. and if you change your mind about going to norway dont hesitate to contact me.

Oh wow I had no idea about the situation in Denmark. So unfortunate... And here in Sweden the IB Programme is well known for it´s quality and difficulty but still, they do not value the IB points at all (for Uni)... Anyways, wish you the very best!!
