You do not write the Extended Essay, do the Creativity, Action Service hours or study TOK. You will receive a certificate from IB for every course you pass..
IB Marking Scheme Final IB marks range from a 0 – 7. A boost of 0 – 7 may be given to students who work hard. This reflects the increased difficulty of work.
