um, to be honest I'm not sure. I think they were around 40/42, but we were never told.
My school didn't give me any predicted grades except for the subject I was applying for (my chemistry teacher wrote my predicted grade only for chemistry in her reference), as there was no place on the UCAS form for this any more, so they assumed we didn't need any predicted grades.
Out of four of us applying to Oxbridge that year, we all got interviews (and offers), even though none of us had any predicted grades submitted. But I should think that, especially if your school is in the UK, you would be expected to have some, and I shouldn't imagine that they'd quite settle for a predicted grade lower than their usual minimum IB offer (ie 38 points with mostly 7s in your HL subjects).
Total Points: 38 inc bonus
Specific Subject Points: 667 at higher
6 6 7 ?
~.~; that's awesome
and for LAW?
@cuth and Optimistic:
I don't have to get a 7 in Maths HL, just 776 at Higher Level in any order. So I could get a 6 in Maths and 7s in German and Chemistry.
Total Points: 38 (without bonus)
Specific Subject Points: 7 in Mathematics HL and Physics HL, 6 in Spanish A1 HL
Course/Subject: Mathematics with Computer Science
Total Points: 40 including bonus
Specific Subject Points: 7 in Mathematics HL, Chemistry HL and Physics HL
Course/Subject: Natsci (Physical)
!?!??!!!??!! wow, they must have loved you
what is the bonus that some people have mentioned?
yea..but IB is HELL compared to A levels...
in A levels..u can do subjects you LOVE...how ever in the IB, no matter which highers you take, u'll always haev to deal with the standards which might no be of an interest to you...
to me, that's the one largest drawback in the IB.
well let's hope they recognize that in ALL the colleges;;
cause... 7 in maths , physics and chem is no easy thing for me -.-
Yes, I guess an IB 7 would be an A* in A-levels were they to exist. But I do like the fact of studying all the branches of knowledge: even if you're not specialising on it, it's extra knowledge that may come useful and that gives you a great insight. One of my friends is studying HL Chem and Bio to be a doctor, yet she takes Economics as Group 3. I can think of loads of advantages a medicine student could gain with that. The whole IB is also very focused on development, poverty, the environment... things that shouldn't be overlooked at this stage of education.
I am a dutch 2nd year IB student at a United World College. I really need some advice from all the experienced people here. I have the following marks predicted (without bonus)
Math HL 7
Physics HL 7
Economics HL 7
English A2 HL 7
Music SL 7
Dutch A2 Sl 6
Do I have any chance when I apply to Cambridge and LSE? I want to do economics.
I may not be very experienced, and may know totally nothing about applying to oxbridge, but your grades are nearly perfect, so if you feel like you really want to, you should definitely apply to cambridge. and with all that additional stuff that you surely do in UWC you have quite a good chance of getting an offer.
Or maybe I am just not objective enough, cause it was my dream to get a uwc scholarship... btw: what college are you from? Atlantic?
