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 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

If the course coordinator allows, candidates can access results via the IB Diploma Programme candidate website on 6 July 2023

To view the time your results are released, a candidate can do the following. 

  • Refer to the Individual PIN report provided by the school’s DPCP coordinators. 
  • Select the “Results” tab on the IB Diploma Programme candidate website

Accessing November 2023 examination results

DP/CP results are released to IB World Schools on 2 January 2024 at 12.00 noon Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). DP/CP candidates will receive their results within 48 hours of the release to schools. For more information, candidates are encouraged to talk to their coordinator.
