IB Results just came out, and I am very dissappointed in my IB Spanish B SL exam grade.

I was surprised to see that I got a 6.
Furtheremore, "The marks required for grade to increase" to a 7 is ONE mark.

I am almost certain that I deserved a 7, but maybe it was just not my day.
Anyways, my question is, what can I do?

I have heard various things but I do not know what is true and not.

As I understand it, there are 5 main parts that made up my score.
External:
- Paper 1
- Paper 2
- Written Assignment
Internal:
- Individual oral
- Interactive oral activity

Which of these am I allowed to request to be remarked/regraded?
Externally, what gets remarked? Just the exam paper 1 and 2, or also IAs and the Written Assignment? How would I do that?

Internally, am I allowed to redo an IA or have it remarked? How would I do that?

Essentially, what are my options to MAYBE raise my exam grade one mark?

I DO know it can also be lowered on a remark, but since I am one point off of a 7, it is a risk I am willing to take.

Thank you!

Firstly I would say make an appointment or contact the IB Coordinator at your college - they will be able to advise you

The IB website isn't the easiest website to navigate is it! There is some information here but I can't find anything specific for languages so I'm afraid this is very general.

We have some guidance on resits/remarks here but again it is more general than subject specific. Fingers crossed another member of the community will be able to help you.

Remarks

All requests for remarks must be initiated by the school coordinator.
Retakes

Schools can choose to offer retakes at their own discretion. Should you wish to request a retake, you should contact IB World Schools in your area using the Schools Search

Thank you for your response!

I read this on the website:
A re-moderation will only be undertaken in cases where the mean of the candidates’ moderated internal assessment marks differs from the mean of their raw marks (the marks awarded by the teacher) by 15% of the maximum mark for the component.

How do I determine if "the moderated IA marks differs from the mean of thir raw marks" by 15%? Am I allowed to know my IA scores?

The honest answer is I don't know - but your IB coordinator will so they will be able to advise you on this basis because they'll have the access to all your personal information. Does that help?
