Hey fellow IBs,

I've been trying to get a straight answer to this question from my teachers/students/etc for some
time now, but no one can answer me.... I'm curious as to if IB's grade scale (1-7) has an official
percentage or "out of five" equivilant.... I've read one for Math Methods in an eariler post, but
I'm more curious as to History and English--somehow I get the feeling that they're different from
the science courses.

Thanks--gotta get back to studying now....bah...my non-IB friends are seeing Spiderman at this very
moment, and I'm couped up at home mulling over the Eastern Question!!

IB marks are meant to conform to a certain "standard" rather than percentage based. It varies from
year to year but generally isnt over 5% different form last year. Ask your teacher if they have any
marking summary thingies (forgot the name of them). Basically, they go through each question in
DETAIL and explain exactly where most students made mistakes. It also gives you grade boundaries. I
doubt the Nov 2001 are out yet but the May2001 and the Nov 2000 certainly are. BTW: If you do manage
to score any Nov 2001 ones, oculd you send a scanned copy this way
