When are examiners appointed?

We appoint examiners throughout the year.

We offer examiners an automatic contract renewal each year, depending on performance levels. When accepting the terms and conditions of their contract, we also ask examiners to outline their availability for the forthcoming year.

As an examiner, if you would like to change subject, components or mark additional components, please contact examiners@ibo.org.

Examiners are permitted to assess a maximum of two components during an examination session, unless there are exceptional circumstances.  Due to the overlap of assessment periods, examiners can assess one script component and either an internal assessment, Extended Essay or Theory of Knowledge.
