Can I retake IB examinations?
Candidates can retake a subject in any future examination session and at any IB World School offering the Diploma Programme or Career-related Programme.
However, restrictions apply. Contact the IB programme coordinator at the school where you wish to register. An IB World School is under no obligation to accept retake candidates.
- if you retake a subject to improve your results, the highest grade for the subject or core requirement will contribute to the award of the IB Diploma
- if you retake a subject that has had a recent curriculum change, you will need to follow the new curriculum. For further information about curriculum changes, contact your IB programme coordinator.
If I retake an examination, do I have to redo my internal assessment?
Consult your IB programme coordinator who will be able to advise you further.
What are the fees for retaking an IB subject?
Contact the IB programme coordinator at the school where you wish to register to confirm the fees for IB retake examinations. As IB World Schools are independent, they are responsible for their own fees.
I am a course candidate; can I retake IB examinations?
