Assessment & Grades

Summative assessment
Students will be tested regularly in all subjects to monitor their understanding of the subject matter and their own progress. Overall feedback in the form of grades and statements about work habits will be given four times during the year - see calendar on "Lectio" : in November, March, May and June.

In pre-IB there are end-of-year exams (in June) in languages as well as in several subjects selected by the Ministry of Education (C-level, stx). Students apply for IB DP on 1 March; their academic record at that time decides on eligibility.

For IB DP Year 1 (2i), written end-of-year exams in June are conducted in all the six subjects chosen by the respective student - plus oral exams in languages A and B. All June is reserved for this purpose.

IB DP Year 2 (3i), written Mock Exams in all six subject areas take place in February/March to prepare for the final exams in May. Note: There are no Mock Exams in Langage A:Lit self-taught and ToK.

The end-of-year assessment in May is a vital component in the school's decision about the student's eligibility for progress within the IB system. NOTE: There is no 'automatic' continuation from one year to the next.
