The Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) has agreed that all International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) results shall be treated as equivalent to the Higher Secondary School Certificate and the Secondary School Certificate respectively.
During recent months, IB has been engaged in on-going discussions with the IBCC from the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training, about the cancellation of the May 2020 DP examinations and the MYP eAssessment, to ensure that IB students are not disadvantaged as they progress to their next phase of education.
The IBCC also confirmed that the equivalence formula for internal assessments will not be applied while converting the internal assessment of IB students for May 2020.
