IB Diploma Programme Results 2022
Although our students are so much more than a two-digit number on their exams, it is important for our community to know how our students perform from year to year. IGBIS is proud of the human beings that we help create, including their academic performance.
In the IB DP, points are awarded from 1 to 7, with a 7 being the highest grade possible. Up to three additional points are awarded depending on the grades achieved in the Core which includes the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge course for a total possible score of 45. The global average is generally around 30 points with a pass rate of 80%. In order to receive an IB Diploma, a minimum score of 24 is required with a minimum of 12 points coming from the HL subjects and 9 from the SL subjects. Regardless of the final exam scores, student must also satisfactorily complete the Core as failing to complete the requirements of CAS, the EE or TOK will negate the awarding of a diploma.

Established in 1968 for students aged 16-19, the IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an internationally recognised academic programme designed to meet the needs of motivated high school students, providing them with a balanced education, and facilitating geographic and cultural mobility, while promoting international understanding. A comprehensive two-year programme that enables students to fulfil the requirements of various national education systems around the world, the IBDP’s curriculum model incorporates the best elements of several national assessment systems.
Students select six courses that they study for two years while also completing a compulsory core (see the diagram above). Each course lasts two years, from Grade 11 to 12 and in May of the Grade 12 year, the students sit for the IBDP standardised, external examinations.
