How is the IB Diploma recognized
“Diploma Programme students are well-rounded, multifaceted, multiskilled and have studied in depth. They have good time-management skills. They score higher than students in other national systems, and the IB score is worldwide the same measure.”
Hrilina Lock, undergraduate admissions manager,
London School of Economics, UK
"University recognition has always been a primary concern for Diploma Programme students, parents, school staff and the whole IB organization. Annually, the vast majority of students who complete the Diploma Programme move on to further and higher education. Not only is the IB Diploma well respected at the universities in Sweden with a conversion scale for IB-grades, but also a fantastic opportunity to enter higher education all over the world. IB standards and grading practices are the same around the world, with means that the criteria for achieving each grade are the same for all IB World Schools. Admissions offices can be assured of student's strong preparation for higher education.
