The International Baccalaureate Organization has announced the cancellation of their May 2020 exams. The IB will be awarding students a grade for each of their registered subjects on the normal 1-7 scale, using a calculation that takes into account their coursework grades and their predicted grades.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to supporting our incoming students and ensuring that they have a smooth transition to their higher education studies. Thus, based on the calculated grades that the IB will provide, Illinois will continue to award academic credit for strong performance on all Higher Level and Standard Level exams. The credit policies that apply to 2020-2021 incoming students appear below. As always, incoming students will also have the opportunity to take departmental proficiency exams.
