Will IB Exams be Cancelled?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Board has made the difficult decision to cancel its class 12 exam or diploma program and take the unexamined route in India. This is due to the sharp increase in Covid-19 cases in the country, according to an official announcement. The IB also realizes that each student or school will be in a unique situation and has measures in place to ensure that each candidate is awarded grades. As with the GCSE & A level courses, all exams for the IB have been canceled.

The IBO, the review board for IB evaluations, will base student grades on a thorough evaluation of coursework and pre-completed assessments. All work that would normally be marked by a teacher, will now be marked by the IBO. It will also be necessary to submit all the coursework and this is something that your school will take care of. Those wishing to cancel the IB exams for DP1 and DP2 Diploma Programs in India will need to sign this petition. Since March 20, all schools in the UK, both state and boarding schools, have been closed and this has led to the cancellation of all GCSE, A level and IB exams.

In addition, dedicated IB teams will continue to work closely with schools, providing timely information, support, resources and opportunities to ask questions and comments. The decision to cancel IB exams was not taken lightly by the Board. They understand that this is a difficult time for students and are doing their best to ensure that everyone is given a fair chance at success. The Board is committed to providing students with the best possible education and support during these unprecedented times.
