IB Exam Results

Congratulations to Haut-Lac’s Class of 2018!

The Directors of Haut-Lac International Bilingual School applaud the students and staff on the achievements of the Class of 2018 in their International Baccalaureate examinations.  21 of the 42 students in the Class of 2018 completed both their IB MYP Certificate and the IB Diploma studies at Haut-Lac. A high proportion of  candidates chose to sit for a Bilingual Diploma, with more than half of these gaining 30 points or more. 44% of the cohort scored 32 or over, with the highest mark gained being 42. Haut-Lac is non-selective and gives an opportunity to all students wishing to sit the IB Diploma to do so, a challenge that they take up with perseverance and commitment, and the dedicated support of their teachers.  We wish all our candidates well for their future studies and careers, and look forward to hearing of their future successes.

Universities in different countries have vastly different requirements, screening procedures, and admission factors. As a result, we must limit our observations to general remarks. We recommend that students who have a particular preference for their continued education contact the university and the department of their choice directly for information about enrolment requirements. However, we can confidently say that all universities hold the International Baccalaureate Diploma and the skills its holders possess in high esteem.

Universities in the United Kingdom consider IB Diploma holders with a minimum of 24 points (the pass mark). Individual offers tend to be conditional and depend on certain grade combinations or the subjects taken at Higher and Standard Level, similar to A-Level result requirements. A grade of ‘A’ at A-Level is valued at 120 Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) tariff points. Three ‘A’ grades therefore translate into 360 UCAS tariff points. Comparisons to the IB Diploma (and individual certificate examinations if less than 6 subjects are examined) are shown in a chart below.

Swiss universities officially require 32 points from International Baccalaureate Diploma candidates. We encourage students who would like to pursue further studies at a Swiss university to work closely with their teachers on the best choices and subject combinations to maximise their chances of being admitted. Requirements vary, so close attention and individual planning is critical for success.

North American universities may award up to one whole year’s credit depending on the International Baccalaureate examinations taken.
