To our IB Students and Families,
The International Baccalaureate Organization has announced that the May examinations for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme will not be held this year due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
As an organization, it is critical for the IB to ensure that the options it provides its global community of IB World Schools are based on compassion and fairness for the difficult circumstances that its students and educators are experiencing. As a result, based on considerable advice from stakeholders across the globe, including schools, students, universities and official bodies, the IB has determined what it believes to be the most responsible and ethical way forward.
The May 2020 examinations as scheduled between 30 April and 22 May for Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme candidates will no longer be held.
Depending on what they registered for, the student will be awarded a Diploma or a Course Certificate which reflects their standard of work. This is based on student’s coursework and the established assessment expertise, rigor and quality control already built into the programmes.
We know parents and student will have many questions. The IB will share full details and FAQs with us and on their website by 27 March 2020.
For any other questions, please contact IB Coordinator, Ruth Morrison Svensson.
Mobile: 0724 528 515
Thank you and stay well.
Ruth Morrison Svensson

”I chose the IB Diploma Programme as it means I will get the education I need to reach my goals. At NTI I don’t have to choose between language, programming, and finance. I get to do it all at the same time.” – Sara Nasr, NTI Gymnasiet Skövde
