 Notes:

Credit is awarded for Higher Level exams only.

For all IB language courses, it must be determined whether or not the student took the IB course in her or his native language. Credit will normally be given only for Group 2 Language Acquisition (Language B) courses; however, students who complete Group 1 Studies in Language & Literature (Language A) courses outside their native language may also receive credit.  

Language course equivalents are for the purpose of awarding credit only and do not indicate a student’s level of placement in a language. Students taking IB language exams may be placed in a higher language course and should take the relevant placement test to determine the appropriate course to take.

A student may receive credit for only one English IB test and for one test in a particular language, either in Group 1 or Group 2.
