  1. Hi! So i'm 2 marks away from 5 in Geography HL and I've been wandering what are the chances of the grade going up. I've applied to University College Cork in Ireland and in order to meet the requirements I need at least 5 in two HL subjects (I've received 466 in HL subjects and 447 in SL subjects, 32 points overall). Should I try for a remark or not? And do you know, perhaps, whether I have a chance or not to get into UCC with my resuts? I would really appreciate your opinion :D
  2. I'm thinking about remarking my SL math and french exams. I haven't gotten my mark breakdown yet of the individual papers but they are both 1 mark away from the next grade level. I talked to my IB coordinator and she says that it is approximately $200 per paper to remark. I was just curious to know if it costs the same amount everywhere or if its depending on the school or country...
  3. I recently received my IB marks a few days ago and I'm not really happy with it at all ( like at all ). My total score is 25 & I missed the upper boundary grade by 1 point in 3 different subjects & both the EE & TOK, meaning that I could have achieved a higher mark. I failed to get into my course by 3 points & am thinking of two options: 1. apply to a different course for now and then transferring to my original course throughout the semester 2. remark some of the subjects where I'm off by 1 point from the upper boundary grade At this point, I don't really
  4. I think a thread about re-marks will be useful to the ones who are considering a remark or waiting for their enquiry to take place, as it's quite inconvenient to search the information about re-marks in many separate threads. I suggest posting the following information: Subject How many % was the grade from the next one (if relevant, breakdown by components)How long did the decision takeResult (up, down or unchanged)By "re-mark" I mean mainly a category 1 enquiry upon results (EUR). Perhaps some information would be necessary: A category 1 EUR involves the externally assessed components of

    So i got my november retake results and i am 5 marks away from a higher grade in history, i need one point to get 24 points. i registered for the may exams to retake, so what is the risk? i have the money, ( starting work was so beneficial ) should i just send my papers? has anyone ever miraculously gotten a higher point from like an everage of 5 marks increase? (i legit know i did good and wrote my ass off with quotes and dates, and historians, i think someone is biased and i keep getting the same teacher that corrects my stuff cause i legit don't understand) help

    Hi I just got my IB grades and it is really ****ed up. I got 11 points on my HL's, which means I am not passing. The problem is the marks I am missing in my HL subjects to reach the next grade boundaries are a lot, 8 marks minimum. So, I am wondering what is the maximum marks someone has gone up by? Because 8 or 9 marks more sounds kind off unrealistic.
  7. Hey Guys, So i was 1 mark off a 6 in math, and my teacher recommends me to send it for a remark incase my grade goes up. Its a category 1 remark which means only the IA will be marked again. Do you think I should send it? Im kinda scared of the grade dropping completely... Thank you
  8. I had a quick question about the remark for the SL French exam. Would the remark include remarking of the written assignment since it was uploaded on upload.ibis.ibo or does it only include remarking of Paper 1 and Paper 2 and not the written assignment?
  9. I recently got my results and I was very dissapointed having 23 points thus the diploma cannot be obtained. I was predicted to have 27 points but now I am sad and cannot go to university of which I wanted to go. This is my last time I can take the IB exam. Here is the breakdown of my subjects: HL: Geography: 4 (1 point away from a 5) Dutch LL: 3 (2 points away from a 4) Biology 4 (5 points away from a 5) SL: Math Standard 3 (6 points away from a 4) English LL: 4 (4 points away from a 5) Economics: 4 (1 point away from a 5) EE and TOK: C and C (both a point away
  10. is it possible to get course certificate in spite of being a diploma program student after the result is out? It said 'diploma program not awarded'
  11. Hey guys! I just got my IB results, and overall I got a 29 - this was the third highest score out of all of the IB candidates in my school. Keep in mind, IB is optional and a lot of us take it, but I'm from the US where it isn't super common. Anyway, my university only gives credit to diploma candidates who score a 30 or higher. I am 2 points away from getting an "A" on my English Literature EE. Would it be worth it to have them reevaluate in hopes of getting a full 30 and then college credits? Thank you all!
  12. Hey guys, I got a 63 for my IB Business SL exam, which is a 6, and I need 6 points to get it to a 7. (69pts and above is a 7) Should I get it remarked/ regarded? Do you think it might go up, or is there no chance at all? :/ By the way, lower grade boundaries is 58, so my grade is right in the middle of the 6 band. I don't think it'll fall..
  13. Hi guys, I sent of my ESS exam for a remark as I am on the boundary for the next grade, and I was wondering if anyone has had success with remarks in the past? Thank you
  14. Hi everyone! my brother is 3 marks away from a 6 in SL economics, and 9 from a 4. He thought he did really well, so he's considering requesting a remark. We got the mark breakdown: paper 1: 33 (scaled=26.4) which is a 6 paper 2: 18 (scaled=18) which is a 4 and his lowest internal assessment: 34 (scaled=15.1) which is a 6 do you think we should remark? Is there a real risk that his mark could go down to a 4? Thank you so much!!
  15. Hey! I got my exam results today and I am pretty happy with it. I was able to accurately predict my own scores for the most part so there were no surprises. Plus, I was awarded my diploma. But, in both History of Americas HL and Biology HL i am 4 marks away from a 6. I got a 6 in English A HL. I want 6s in all my HL because the college that I am going to will only give me credit for the HL courses that I got a 6 or 7 in. So, I do not really care about my SLs. I wanted to know or get advice from anyone who has had experiecne with getting their exams remarked. Money is not a
  16. Hi everyone, Now the May 2016 result is out..I received 43/45 for my final with two B's for my EE and TOK. My EE grade is 27, 2 marks off from the A boundary 29. My TOK grade is 18, 4 marks off from the A boundary 22. And I received a 6 for Chinese A Literature and I am 4 marks off from the 7 boundary. The 7 boundary is 82 and the 6 boundary is 71. Do you guys recommend me to get a remark? What are some potential consequences? Which one to remark? As far as I can see I am at a high B for EE, so there might be less to lose if I remark EE? In terms of the language
  17. Hello IBS I got my results yesterday and for my EE in maths I got 22/36 i.e. a C. I need one more point to increase it to a B. In TOK I got an A and I would really like the 3 bonus points. How likely is it that my grade will be raised? Is it worth asking for a remark?
  18. Hello! After receiving the IB scores I was bummed out that i got a 23/24 only missing the diploma by 1 point . I have checked everything and have every requirement except the 24 points to receive the diploma. I saw that remarking was a way to regrade papers to have the possibility to have a higher score. I am currently finding ways to get an extra point through remarking papers for that IB Diploma . Plan A to get 1 point.) So, I received an C on TOK and a D on my EE. I heard that If I were to get a C on both the TOK and EE that I would be eligible for an extra point. In regards to my EE I
  19. Hi everyone, Now the May 2016 result is out..I received 43/45 for my final with two B's for my EE and TOK. And I received a 6 for Chinese A Literature and I am 4 marks off from the 7 boundary. The 7 boundary is 82 and the 6 boundary is 71. Do you guys recommend me to get a remark? Has any one done Group One subject remark? What are the chances for an increased grade? Thanks a lot in advance. PS:just to confirm: you can choose certain subjects to be remarked instead of the whole exam right? Cuz I am on the 7 boundary for chemistry and I don't want to r
  20. I sent out my request to remark the day after results were released. I read that it could take a few days up to a maximum of 4 weeks.. How long does it really take though? I sent it out ASAP so I'm assuming it'll be faster than average. Does anyone have any experience on this?
  21. Hi guys, I got my component results for the May 2015 exams today, I think I may get Visual Arts (SL Option A) remarked. I got a 6 but I'm very close to 7, please please help me out. Im naturally talented in art and I worked so hard especially in IB2, I thought I did very well. All of my teachers were stunned by my exhibition, I was confident I'd get 7 as I was keen to meet all the descriptors throughout my works and showed clear development and technical skill over the years. My IA is 19/20 so that's safe- but my studio got 14/20 which was extremely uncalled for because all of my submitted w
  22. I am 1 point away from receiving a 6 on my IB SL ESS exam. I am a junior and plan on majoring in environmental science in college. I would like to send my ESS score to colleges when I apply in the fall and would rather have the 6 if it could be boosted. However, my essays for ESS were a bit out there.. I talked a lot about the women's rights movements for one of them, which I was very scared would not earn many points. I am afraid that if I have it remarked the essays will lose points and I will get a 4. My questions are: What are the odds that my score is boosted if I request a remark? Wh
  23. So I sat the anticipated business and management SL exam in November 2014 (last year) and I was quite disappointed with my results. I had achieved solid 7's all throughout the year and for mock exams and I also received a predicted 22/25 for my IA. I know school marking and the IB can be different but this adds to my disappointment. I received a 6 but I was only 3% off getting a 7. If I do send this off for a remark, how likely would my mark go up to a 7? Business and management, if you don't already know, doesn't have a set mark scheme to the exams, much like English, so the chances of
  24. Hi everyone, I am currently 2% away from getting a 6 in Biology SL. What are the chances I will be able to get a 6 if I request a remark? Is it worth it? Thanks
