Are absences a part of the failing condition of an IB diploma?

    Please answer

    I'm on the edge of failing at my school because I have too many absences. My grades are fine, they're all 4 and above. But lately I've been going through some deep winter depression and sleep deprivation and they've costed me greatly. At my school, 18 absences or more a year results in a fail or a repeat of grade. I have 14 absences.

    Thanks in advance

    As far as I know, it is not a failing condition. However, I believe that if you drop below 85% attendance, you will not go past IB1. If you do it on IB2, you aren't allowed to complete the exams.

    This may be a school condition though.
