IB NON EXAM ROUTE 2021

IB Exams will not take place in 2021. The Minneapolis Public Schools has determined due to Covid-19 protocols it is not safe to offer onsite exams; therefore, the district has opted for the Non Exam Route offered by the International Baccaulaureate due to the pandemic and our status as distance learning.

According to the memo:  MPS Community IB Exams 2021 

Scores, IB Certificates and IB Diplomas and Career-related Certificates will still be issued in July 2021. Scores will be based on a combination of Student Internal Assessment Scores and Teacher Predicted Grades. UP TO DATE NEWS FROM IB

Students are encouraged to focus on the quality of their Internal Assessments and IB Coursework in 2021. 

You may cancel an AP Exam for a full refund by logging into your www.totalregistration.net account. Late fees are non-refundable. Please cancel your exam by April 30th.
