Students complete internal exams within the classroom. These exams are marked by the student’s teacher and then moderated by external IB examiners. Internal assessments vary by subject, but can include oral presentations, in class essays, replication of experiments, lab reports, research papers, and oral interviews.
Students are awarded marks (scores) for each course based on their performance on both the external exams in May and their internal exams throughout the year. The marks range from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest).
