The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme consists of college-level classes that aim to create a better world through cultural bonding and learning. Students in this program have a significant end-of-year exam to test skills in retaining knowledge from their classes, understanding key concepts of the lessons they were taught, and applying what they learned in the real world.

The exams will begin on May 3rd at 12:00 PM with the English A Lit. exams on May 3rd at 12:00 PM and May 4th at 12:00 PM, the Philosophy exam will begin at 8:30 AM both days on May 4th and 5th, the Env. and Soc. exam starts May 5th at 12:00 PM and May 8th at 8:30, the Math Apps and Int exam starts 12:00 PM May 8th and May 9th at 12:00 PM, the Japanese AB exam is on May 9th at 8:30 AM and May 10th at 9:00 AM, the History exam is on May 10th at 12:00 PM and May 11th at 8:30 AM, the French exam is at 8:30 AM for both May 12th and May 15th, the Spanish exam is at 8:30 AM May 16th and 9:00 AM May 17th, and last, but not least, the Biology exam will end IB testing for this year at 12:00 PM May 17th and 8:30 AM May 18th.

These tests take anywhere between 45 minutes and two hours and fifteen minutes to complete and play a large part in helping students achieve further education. So it’s only natural that many IB students are nervous about testing. If you have any friends in the IB program, show them some appreciation for their hard work.
