IB Diploma Examinations

Each year two IB Diploma examinations sessions are held, in May and in November; the examinations results are published, respectively, at the beginning of July and of January. An IB Diploma candidate can gain from grade "1" (the lowest) to grade "7" (the highest) in each subject. Additionally, they can gain 3 points maximum for the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge combined. Hence, the highest possible result is 45 points (6 subjects x 7 points + 3 points for the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge).

Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay are graded from "E" (the lowest grade) to "A" (the highest grade). The combination of grades for these two Diploma components is subsequently converted into points according to a special Diploma points matrix - see here.

A candidate is entitled to three IB Diploma examinations session maximum.
