Schools should expect to receive the IB Diploma, Diploma results and Course results by September/March. These documents constitute the official results. Results certification will only show what a candidate achieves. Certification will not display subjects with a “grade” of “N” or display that a candidate has not completed CAS.
Results certification will always display the school where the candidate took his or her final examinations. When a candidate has retaken subjects at a school different from the school at which he or she took his or her original examinations, the certificate will display the name of the retake school, not the original school.
Diploma results and/or Course results requiring legalisation will be sent separately by the legalisation service in Geneva as soon as the legalisation process is finished.
If an anticipated, diploma or retake candidate takes an additional subject, that candidate will receive a separate Course results showing the subject(s) taken and grade(s) awarded. For anticipated candidates who do not complete the diploma, Course results will be sent with the above mailing.
For candidates who attend an IB World School in the United Kingdom, two sets of documents are issued: one set will have the logo of each accreditation body and the registered Ofqual qualification number; the second set will be issued without these logos. Similarly, candidates attending an IB World School in the state of Victoria, Australia, will have one set with the Victorian Registration & Qualifications Authority (VRQA) logo and another set without this logo. The IB is complying with a requirement to provide certification with these logos.
It is important to be aware that the IB prints only the legal name of a school on a candidate’s results documents, though universities and other institutions may not be familiar with the legal name.
The candidate name displayed on the official IB certification is printed in exactly the same format as registered on IBIS. Therefore, please ensure the candidates name on the IBIS registration screen has the correct spelling and full name as per the candidate’s passport/birth certificate.
