INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE DIPLOMA
The IB Diploma is the culmination of the IB Continuum. Each of the six subjects taken in the Diploma is graded from 7 to 1 and the overall sum is combined to give a total score that incorporates further points earned in Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay. The Diploma is awarded to students with at least 24 points, providing certain general conditions are met, and the maximum number of points earned in the Diploma is 45. A small number of students may take a seventh subject, although this does not contribute to the official IB Diploma score.
