Um, I think just if you pass the diploma minimum (28+) then it's good. I think us IB students are a bit stuck up when it comes to points! Um, for subjects, 5 at the science HL's is good, as is 5 in Drama. For easier subjects (Env.Systems, Maths Studies, ....) 6 minimum. Most others, 5 good, 6 is better, and 7 is just amazing.

woohoo, i'm aiming for 41 points. Sorry for boasting, but... yipee!!! :eek3: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep: :yep:

At my school (new IB school, first year) 32+ is generally considered to be acceptable.

I would personally start to be content with my overall score from 36 onwards.

Hey guys! A-level and IB are simply incomparable. I am predcited 38/45 in IB and I'm pretty sad about it. I do 2 sciences, 2 languages, Maths and 1 SocSci. If i had tod o A-levels 1 could just do 2 sciences and math- no socsci or languages!!!! I could have got A*AA or something like dat..i just hope i get into LSE with 38...and then let me screw up A-level students case in d uni!!!..lol...:-D

I would say 35+ is good and 40+ is great (without extras).
Personally I'm aiming at 37-38 without extras even though I only need 36. However it does depend on your subjects, those who take HL Math/Further Maths and HL Physics it is harder to get the 7s than in HL History or Psych. I do not see the point of figuring out what a good score is because in the end as long as you get into a uni of your choice, it's all good. =]

Depends entirely on the subject chosen. Normally though I'd say 24-32 is bad, 33-34 is 'alright' (not good but not bad either), 35-37 is good, 38+ is very good. But as I said before, it depends entirely on the subject imo, for e.g. I'd consider 34 to be good if the candidate had HL Maths, Physics, Chemistry.

Dont think anyone would have got a 6/7 in HL maths this year test was insane average was a low 4. I got 39 points overall was predicted 44 but meh thats how it goes exams are hard and you have language orals a month or so before exams which caps preparation in other subjects.

My skl 1st year doing IB 4/8 failed completely and 1 passed but didnt get into uni straight away (is needing to negotiate)

40+? Though I suppose that would be 'very' good.

The subject choices really don't make that much of a difference. Myself and one other both taking HL maths, physics, and chemistry (as mentioned in this topic) both got 44 points with 7s in the HLs. Obviously 44 is an abnormally high score for anyone, requiring a heavy bunch of luck, but the fact that we beat the others in our school in terms of points without being more gifted at all suggests the subject isn't that much of a considering factor. Except, perhaps, HL maths.

Anything above 28 should be considered as good right ? I mean, personally i really struggle with IB and its workload and would be extremely happen even with 28. On the other hand i guess some people are perfectionists or book worms and are likely to achieve 40+ so to them good is at a much higher standard ?
