Do Australian Universities like IB?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am starting IB next year and I'm starting to have my doubts.

I've been reading a lot online and it's putting me off, so I'm trying to regain my confidence.

I was just wondering whether Australian Universities like/favour IB students?

Generally it can be "easier" for IB students (conversion is massively skewed in your favor). I study at an Aussie uni and I did IB so I don't think they hate it (and most of them accept IB scores).

So I reckon you'll be alright mate.

All Aussie Unis accept IB Scores. If you are an international student wanting to study in Australia, or an Australian student in High school going back there for Uni (I am) then IB is the way to go. The scores transfer really well into the ATAR score (ex a 33 is a 90, you can see the conversion here https://ibaustralasia.org/university-entrance) and you don't have to apply until August/September after your exams.

Good luck! You got this
