The IB provides universities with an official transcript of the qualifications of the Diploma Program (DP) and the Career-Related Program (CP). These documents are not sent to students or other organizations. The IB works closely with university researchers around the world to carry out studies on the development, quality control and evaluation of the impact of IB programs and services. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about IB repetitions, answered in simple and easy to understand language.
If you have any questions about repeating the IB, please let us know through our enquiry form or by calling us by phone. When the results are published, they will be made available to institutes through a secure IB website or in a printed transcript if the institute does not use the secure IB website. On the IB website you will find a list of all the IB World Schools and the exam sessions in which they participate. Last May, the IB stated that IB exams and grade limits would return to pre-COVID standards, making it possible for many students to obtain lower than expected IB grades because of higher assessment standards.
If the chosen institution chose to receive the IB transcripts through a secure IB website, they will receive theirs as soon as the results are published (or, in the case of graduates, as soon as the IB has processed their order). The IB will not accept the registration of any candidate after the last deadline, October 15, regardless of when students first took the IB exams. The IB is very proud of its graduates, and the alumni network connects them to each other and to the IB community. You can retake all six academic subjects, as well as the main components, or any combination of them, if they are taught by your IB World School and they are willing to take each subject or component.
