  1. I’m also an IB teacher, and it’s never occurred to me to ask anyone what “passing” means on that exam. The kids have to get a certain number of points in all their exams to get the diploma (I think it’s 24), but six different areas contribute to the points.

  2. Our district makes a big deal about test scores, so…
    You are correct when you say the sum of all their points in the six areas has to add up to a minimum of 24 points. If a student were to earn a 4 in all six areas, plus complete their CAS requirements and the Extended Essay he earns his diploma. Given that reasoning, and the fact that IB awards certificates to students who earn a 4 or higher and choose not to pursue a diploma, our program coordinator says we have 100% passing rate.
