In IB, students are assessed on a scale from 1 to 7. However, grades are not the only way of giving feedback to IB students. Personal approach, which is also highly valued at The European School of Bucharest, is even more important. Students will get verbal or written feedback from the teachers for every assignment, which helps them to grow and learn from their mistakes.
Students take written examinations at the end of the programme, which are marked by external IB examiners. Students also complete assessment tasks in the school, which are either initially marked by teachers and then moderated by external moderators or sent directly to external examiners.
The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole programme and to satisfactory participation in the creativity, action, service requirement. It is also very important to know that students need to acquire minimum 12 points from their HL subjects in order for the Diploma to be awarded.
The highest total that a Diploma Programme student can be awarded is 45 points.
