IB Diploma Programme examinations commence Monday 26 October! 

October 23, 2020
From late October approximately  three  thousand Australasian senior secondary IB Diploma candidates will sit their final exams.   

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Examinations run from 26 October to 13 November. Australasian students will sit for these examinations across Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Fiji. These examinations will take place around the world, but with the varying impact of COVID-19 in some countries, some schools in other parts of the world will not be able to have students sit for paper exams.  For those students unable to sit their written examinations the IB will be awarding results based on Internal Assessments and Predicted Grades.  A detailed explanation of how this process is to be managed may be found here. 

Schools have provided candidates with personalised timetables. The IB Diploma general timetable for the November session examinations may be found here. 

A total of 2,945 students in Australia and 367 in New Zealand will sit for these examinations.  In Victoria there are 826 candidates, 753 in Queensland, 678 in NSW, 400 in South Australia, 177 in the ACT, 73 in Western Australia and 85 in Tasmania. Additional students sit for these examinations in PNG and Fiji.  Results will be released on 3 January 2021. 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a highly regarded senior secondary programme designed to prepare students for university and the challenges of a rapidly changing world.  It is sat for by approximately 200,000 students in more than 5,000 schools in over 153 countries worldwide in examination sessions in May or November this year.
