The International Baccalaureate® (IB) sets a submission date for the extended essay, which is communicated with schools.
It is each school’s responsibility to ensure that all candidate work is received by the IB, with the required paperwork received by the submission date set.
Schools should set internal deadlines
Schools and supervisors are strongly recommended to set internal deadlines for the different stages of producing an extended essay, keeping in mind the IB’s submission date.
If you wish to find out more about the deadline for a particular school, please contact that school directly.
Further information on deadline setting
There is further information on the requirements for meeting external deadlines in the Handbook of Procedures for the Diploma Programme.
Educators in IB World Schools can access the relevant parts of the handbook in the IB’s online curriculum centre (OCC), using their existing log-in details.
