IB results

If you are made and decide to accept an offer of a place from Edinburgh, either as your Firm or Insurance choice, you should ensure that the University receives your IB results through UCAS when they are released.

Your school's IB Diploma programme coordinator will be able to help you do this. Instructions for IB centres on the release of IB Diploma results to UCAS are available on the IB website.
