  • History of the IB at CAC Open or Close

     After a two-year long feasibility study compiled by representatives of the CAC community, the CAC Board of Directors voted unanimously in 1993 to join the world-wide collection of schools who offer the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organization.

     The Diploma Programme is the first and original of the three programs now offered by the IBO and is offered by 2316 member schools in 138 countries (Source: May 2015 Statistical Bulletin). We belong to the Africa, Europe, and Middle East region of the IBO, which encompasses 32% of the schools. The IB Americas are the largest group of schools, more than the other regions combined.

  • AFTER IB RESULTS COME OUT…. Open or Close

    AFTER IB RESULTS ARE RELEASED: WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS FOR RE-MARKING?

    What if my IB results are not what I needed for university or I feel an error has been made? 

    You have the option to submit a signed permission form and pay the fee for an IB Enquiry Upon Result (EUR). This is a re-mark of externally assessed material for an individual candidate. However, the re-marking does not include multiple-choice components of an examination in a group 4 subject or components for which a mark has been carried over from a previous session. A re-mark cannot be requested for individual components. Based on a re-mark, an IB grade can be raised, left unchanged, OR lowered. You can submit an EUR for any or all of your IB subjects.

    Before you decide to request an EUR… wait until component results are released in mid-July, then consult with your teacher and/or the IB Coordinator about how close you may be to a higher mark.

    If you decide to submit an EUR… complete, sign, and return the required permission form available on below and pay the fee (125USD per subject for May 2017) to the CAC Cashier. Once the signed permission form and proof of payment are received (scanning is fine), the EUR will be submitted for you. It may take up to three weeks for the EUR to be completed and CAC to be notified of the result of the re-mark.

    OPTION #2 – Retakes. These are more complicated and costly than an EUR and are only likely to be a serious option for you if you have not earned the full IB Diploma and are required to have it for university. Retakes can be undertaken in any IB school willing to administer them, and IB schools can set parameters on what they will and won’t do for retakes. At CAC, for example, we only do retakes for examinations—not Internal Assessments or the Extended Essay.

    The final IB deadline for an EUR is September 15th. If you wish to request an EUR, please use the Word document available through this link:

  • IB Exam Leave Policy Open or Close

    IB Exam Study Leave – MAY 2018 Examination Session

    Attendance Policy – Study Leave Before/During Exams

    • Full IB Diploma candidates (seniors) only – April 30-May 18 will be optional attendance during the weeks of IB Exams.  Prior to April 30th attendance in classes with exams still pending is required for all students. 

    • IB Course, IB Anticipated & AP Students – All non-Diploma students will be expected to attend year 2 IB classes up until the first day of exams, April 30.  All non-IB classes and year 1 IB classes will continue and attendance is required. Students will be excused from all classes on days when taking a year 2 IB exam. Students are still responsible for all content missed in their regular classes.  Excused absences on the day of an AP exam only applies to students enrolled in and examining for AP U.S. History at CAC.

    • All IB Art and Theatre students will be required to attend class until exams commence on April 30th.

    ATTENDANCE POLICY – AFTER EXAMS

    Once the exams for an IB class are finished, non-Diploma IB students are not required to return to that class.  Non-Diploma IB students are released from class but not school, providing an extra flex. Similar to semester exams, parents can decide whether off-campus privilege should be allowed and permission with signatures is required for sophomores, juniors and any senior who does not already have off-campus privileges.  Any students remaining on campus will have to remain quiet and respectful among three designated areas (outside tables, library, student lounge) and parents will be called with subsequent disciplinary action if there are issues.
