Responsibility for all academic judgements about the quality of candidates' work rests with more than 3000 examiners worldwide. A variety of assessment methods are used to evaluate both the content and process of academic achievement and to take into account different learning styles and cultural patterns.
Students also receive a school mark, independent of the IB grade, which is based on tests, class work, etc, at the discretion of the teacher. A student's transcript will contain the School mark and will also show any IB mark of four or more, which is automatically included. Students who wish other IB marks included should contact the Office and advise accordingly.
