Getting results

Last updated:

For the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP), there are two examination sessions each year in May and November.

May 2023 examination session

The IB has worked to ensure that all candidates registered for the DP/CP May examination session have a path forward to earn the IB Diploma Programme or Career-related Programme certificate—whether they could sit their examinations or not. 

As a result, the IB provided schools with a choice of options for their candidates, including: 

  • awarding grades using written examinations if they could be sat safely 
  • an alternative route using coursework and predicted grades. 

Accessing May 2023 examination results

The candidate website has been updated from the May 2023 session to improve performance stability. 

To be able to access your May 2023 session results please follow these steps:

  1. Ask your programme coordinator to provide you with your May 2023 login credentials – this includes a personal code and individual PIN. Login credentials for the candidate website are session specific. For example, if you are a retake candidate, your login credentials for the May 2022 session will be different to your May 2023 login credentials.
  2. On the landing page of the candidate website, click on 'Results for May 2023'. From there you will be redirected to the new results platform login page.
  3. On the login page, enter your May 2023 candidate website credentials. Beware these are case sensitive; therefore, they need to be entered in the same way they were provided to you.
  4. If this is the first time you access the site, you will need to read and accept the terms and conditions by clicking 'I Accept' at the bottom of the page.
  5. To view your results for this session you can:
    • Click on the 'View results' button or;
    • Select the 'Results' tab at the top of the screen.

If you were registered for previous sessions and you need to check your previous session results, please follow these steps:

  1. On the Home screen, click 'Candidate' on the blue banner at the top of the screen – this will direct you to the landing page.
  2. Click on the 'Results before May 2023' button – the previous candidate website login screen will be displayed.
  3. From there, enter your login credentials which are specific to the session you need to see your results for, e.g., May 2022. If you don’t remember your login credentials for previous sessions, please ask your programme coordinator.

You can follow this process to access your results for May 2023 by clicking on the following link.
