9 This document shows the credits available from Pitt for IB tests at the Higher Level (HL). Scores in the HL classes must be 5 or above. You take 3 courses at the Higher Level: - 3 credits are given for English - 3 credits are given for History - 3 credits are given for your Elective - 3 credits are given for your Language B So you can get 9 credits at Pitt (and most other schools) for your IB Diploma! With just 9 IB Credits at Pitt you would save $5,724!

10 SUMMATION OF BENEFITS FOR YOUR IB DIPLOMA: - Elite schools look at DIPLOMA CANDIDATES in a better light than NON DIPLOMA CANDIDATES. (Schools can and do call to see if a student has paid for their IB Diploma). - Some schools offer Sophomore Status to students that complete an IB Diploma. - Schools that do not offer Sophomore Status do accept IB HL Credits with scores of 5 or higher for the most part. - Sitting for the Diploma is a great challenge!
