I am doing french ab initio and I was wondering what the conversation of proficiency is.
Is a grade 7 in ab into french a level B2 or lower?
Basically what level of french do I need to be to get a 7?

Hi, I've just had a look at this link:
https://www.ibo.org/globalassets/pub...summary-en.pdf
It uses English as an example, but basically a grade 5-6 in French B SL would be equivalent to level B2, which would mean that French Ab Initio would be lower. I did French B so I can't tell you specifics, but I think Ab Initio is more about learning fluency and different verb tenses than anything else, so I think B1 level should be sufficient to get a 7.

thank you! also, if I was a B2 (even B1) do u think I would be able to have a conversation with a french speaker like I would with a friend? i.e. make jokes, respond quickly

I think so; production of text e.g. making jokes, speaking quickly and coherently should be fine, what I for one certainly find harder is understanding everything that is being said when speaking to multiple fluent speakers at once.
