Working to Lower Costs & Eliminate Barriers to Access for Students Worldwide, International Baccalaureate Eliminates its Student Exam Registration Fee, from Yahoo! Finance, July 19, 2019
NEW ORLEANS , July 19, 2019 /CNW/ -- As part of a focused effort to reduce financial barriers for students and schools to participate in its unique programmes, the International Baccalaureate Organization announced today that it is eliminating the $172 "candidate registration" fee that students traditionally pay (as a cost separate from individual IB subject exams).
This decision to lower per student assessment costs is intended to help more students worldwide afford additional subject exams or pursue a full Diploma Programme, as well as help more schools join the community of more than 5000 IB schools worldwide.
"A key part of our mission is to develop for the international community youth who are well-rounded, multilingual and open-minded citizens—a new generation educated in ways that enable them to respond thoughtfully to global, national and local challenges," said International Baccalaureate (IB) Director General Dr. Siva Kumari.
