Hi, I go to a French school and the grading system goes like this:

you get a certain amount of points out of twenty, 15/20 and above is A.


My question: How does the international baccalaureate grading system work?

what does it mean to have a 37?


- Thanks in advance.

I'm doing it, you get 6 subjects, each one is out of 7, so the final would be out of 42, but then you have the EE, CAS etc so I think you can get extra points, so it becomes out of 45 or something.

I don't recommend the IB, if I had known better I would have done A Levels or something, it's summer and I have an ITGS project, EE, World Literature, and all my subjects to study.

Edit: A 37 is amazing, really hard to get in the IB unless you study like a motha****a.

Interesting.

I'm currently participating in it. Schools use different systems to grade, but they all mean the same thing. A buddy of mine goes to a school where each subject is graded out of 20.

Anyhoo, each subject at our school is graded with a percent. You are given a letter grade with the percent, but the number is more important than the letter.

I did a couple of IB classes in High School, and it's brutally hard to get anything over a 5, so I would say that a 37 is pretty damn good

Too many stupid hoops to jump through in that program though
