Diploma Courses Route - Resources

Diploma Courses Route

Students that are not undertaking the Full Diploma route can participate in the Diploma Courses path.  This involves:

  • Taking only those IB subjects in 11th and 12th that you wish to take. It could be 8, it could be 1.

  • Fulfilling all the requirements in that class, which will include -- depending on the class -- lab reports, papers, oral examinations, portfolios, and 2-3 written exams.

  • Most of these components will be required anyway for the Cooper grade.

  • These are all the same things that those pursuing the Diploma will be doing subject by subject.


IB Test Scores

  • A single score (1-7, with 7 being the highest) will be issued based on evaluation in all these areas once the written exams have taken place.

  • Scores for Standard Level (SL) courses and for Higher Level (HL) courses can be used for both college admissions and/or college credit. It depends on the college/university. Scores of 4 or higher are considered quite good because you are being measured against the best students around the world in very difficult coursework.

  • Check with the colleges and universities you are interested in to determine how they will regard your scores.
