Hey,
I was wondering how ToK and Extended Essay works for IB - Do they go towards you final IB points? If so, how are they marked?

Well, it might've changed since I did IB, but assuming it's the same...

You get up to 3 "core" points from ToK/EE (and CAS as a sort of pass/fail multiplier). There's a marking matrix they use to compare your grade in ToK assessment(s), and your EE grade, which determines how many points you get (e.g. A in each gets you 3).

A corollary of this is the EE is (or was, anyway) as "valuable" as ToK. Many people in my year spent far more time on the EE than necessary, and not enough time on their ToK presentations (I think these have been changed to essays now).

However I did IB a decade ago so, check with your IB coordinator/ToK teacher(s).
