    Please clarify the ib rule stating the student has 3 exam periods to complete. If a student did an antipated subject in May 2018 gaining a 7 but was then unhappy with their results for their other 5subjects in May 2019, would they still be able to resit in November 2019 or would this count as 4 exam sessions?

    Nov 2019 would be too late and I don't think it would be possible...it would count as a 4th. Tbh if a student scores badly after the third session, it's just a waste of their time to pursue the diploma. If they can get it then great - but it would be just better to move on, not depend on this so much, and find an alternate solution to whatever ambitions they had....

    I think you misunderstood my question. I am basically asking whether doing an anticipated subject (a standard level subject completed in 1 year) excludes the student from doing a resit for a different subject after completing their ib. Technically they would already have sat exams 12 months apart which is 3 sessions

    Ohhhh I see I'm sorry.... tbh then I'm not sure. I don't think it would count as a fourth one then, because even though they sat an exam session of a subject they completed in a year, they are enrolled for the next session for their other subjects. Maybe the session thing is relative to each subject - like you can sit for 3 sessions by subject...?
