The IB prepares to release students’ examination results with new approach to 45s 

by Belinda Breeze

On 2 January 2024, the International Baccalaureate (IB) will release the Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) students’ examination results for the November 2023 session. DP and CP Students will receive results within 48 hours of release to IB World Schools. Students are encouraged to speak with their IB Coordinator for more detailed information. 

The IB is immensely proud of all IB students who have reached this milestone. Throughout the DP and CP two-year learning journey students acquire the knowledge and skills to personally and professionally thrive and make a difference in the world. 

For the November 2023 examination session, DP and CP students completed all assessment components for each subject and the IB awarded grades using all components, coursework and examinations.  

As of May 2023, the IB decided to discontinue the publication of data highlighting the number of IB students achieving the highest mark (45 data points), to discourage the use of assessment results for comparisons among students, schools, or communities. 

IB students and World Schools are diverse and have varying contexts, socioeconomic positions, and cohort sizes. Additionally, IB students’ individual achievements go far beyond their assessment scores. Given these considerations and the long-term impact of the pandemic as well as other global challenges, the IB has decided to refrain from sharing assessment data to prevent generalized comparisons. The IB is equally proud of all students and the accomplishments they achieved during their two-year DP or CP journey. 

DP and CP students’ results will become available to IB World Schools from 14:00 GMT on 2 January 2024. The IB will share more information on results release with the media on 3 January 2024 at 15:00 GMT.
