    You can still get your Diploma, but it will be witheld until you complete all the hours (I think the CAS deadline is May). But this means that you won't be going uni this September. I don't know if all IB schools do this, so ask your CAS co-ordinator.

    Truthfully, I think you should just stop CAS and concentrate on the exams that are coming up. Because it sounds like no matter what you do, you will get the diploma late. So just work hard and do CAS after!

    Thank you much, you've relieved me of my stress!

    I'll just concentrate on exams since they're happening in May

    Good But remember to ask your CAS co-ordinator about this, not all IB schools are the same!

    Honestly, the administration does have some fault here. CAS should have been completed by...February at least, and they should have been hounding you for it. While it is your fault for not going through it earlier, you're going to have to ENSURE that your CAS coordinator allows you to receive the Diploma after you complete the CAS hours. I have a feeling the coodinator is not good in the first place, so that's why I'm expressing this opinion.

    Yes, focus on your exams and good luck! And if you want to go to uni this September...there is an...um, another method of passing CAS. :P

    A guy at my school faked 120 hours worth of CAS 20 mins before the internal deadline. He got the Diploma
