18,174 students worldwide receive their Diploma Programme (DP), and Career-related Programme (CP) results from the November 2022 examination session.
The IB is immensely proud of all IB students and their accomplishments. Through their two-year DP and CP learning journey, IB students are well-prepared for university and life beyond. They are equipped with the skills, empathy, and knowledge to thrive and contribute to making the world a better place.
The IB is deeply grateful to our schools and educators for their incredible efforts and ongoing support for the benefit of our students. This year’s IB graduates will join a community of more than 2.3 million lifelong learners across 159 countries worldwide.
The average diploma score for the November 2022 session is 30.91 points.
Olli Pekka Heinonen, Director General of the International Baccalaureate said: "It is imperative to remember that in simply getting to this point, IB students have had to show incredible resilience throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The global crisis threw up many challenges for them to overcome, and I am proud of every single IB student completing their courses today. For everyone in the IB family, today is a day for both celebration and reflection."
The IB aimed to provide the best possible experience and outcome for students during this session so that they could successfully progress to the next stage of their education and lives. The IB believes that, where safe and possible to do so, students sitting examinations is the best method to assess student capability. Recognizing that students globally continue to face disruption to their lives and their teaching and learning as a result of the global pandemic, the IB made adaptations to help address the challenges, including adjustments to learning, teaching, and assessment, for the November 2022 examination session.
The vast majority of students were able to sit the examinations. However, the IB also provided a procedure to award grades without written examinations as a contingency measure for the circumstances preventing exam administration. The IB deployed this procedure in the May 2022 examination session as well, with most students able to sit the examinations.
The IB also considered the impact of the pandemic on students throughout the grade awarding process for the November 2022 examination session and set appropriate grade boundaries to account for the disruption to education. A review of results was undertaken to ensure the IB mitigated the disruption students face.
The IB will be publishing an interim statistical bulletin in the next few weeks.
