Summary of IB Diploma Attainment Requirements - Class of 2015 Onward

IB Diploma Programme
Components & Possible IB

Result Scores

           SUBJECTS

Group 1: Language & Literature        1 - 7

Group 2: Language Acquisition        1 - 7

Group 3: Individuals & Societies      1 - 7

Group 4: Sciences                          1 - 7

Group 5: Mathematics                    1 - 7

Group 6: The Arts or IB Elective     1 - 7

At least 3 but no more than 4 subjects
must be completed at Higher Level (HL).
Only 6 IB subjects – one in each of these groups – may contribute to the IB Diploma total score.

         CORE REQUIREMENTS

Theory of Knowledge (ToK)          A - E

Extended Essay (EE)                     A - E

See matrix below for how ToK and EE grades of A - E contribute to 3 additional
points toward the IB Diploma total score.

Creativity-Action-Service (CAS)

CAS is pass/fail; CAS requirements are either met or not met (no numerical or letter score is assigned). If not met, the candidate will automatically be disqualified from receiving the IB Diploma.

Key Reminders:
HL – “Higher Level”
SL – “Standard Level”

Points & Conditions Necessary to Successfully Earn the IB Diploma

  • An IB subject result must have been awarded for each of the six IB Diploma subjects, ToK, and the Extended Essay.
  • (Student must not have any scores of “N” – meaning “NO MARK” – due to malpractice or failure to submit an assessment component.)
  • CAS requirements must be met.
  • Student must have a score of D or higher in both Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay (no E score or N).
  • Student must earn at least 24 total points.
    (45 total pts. possible – 42 from IB subjects + 3 from ToK/EE, see matrix below)
    • The student must earn a total of at least 12 points in HL subjects
      (for candidates who register for four HL subjects, the three highest HL grades will count toward this total).
    • Students who take 3 HL and 3 SL subjects must earn
      at least 9 points total in the SL classes.
    • Students who take 4 HL and 2 SL subjects must earn
      at least 5 points total in the SL classes.
  • The student must earn a 2 or higher in all subjects (no scores of 1).
    • There may be no more than two scores of 2, overall.
    • There may be no more than three scores of 3 or lower, overall.

 The above requirements relate to the official Subject Results the student earns from IB (not the letter grades the student earns in the IB classes at LHS). These requirements are set by IB, not LBIS. IB Subject Results and IB Diploma Results are available to students in early January after the completion of their senior year.

ToK/Extended Essay Point Matrix

Changes from the previous matrix

B + C combination now results in 2 points being earned (previously 1 point)

A + E combination now results in zero points and represents a failing condition
