Entry requirements for applicants with International Baccalaureate (IB) qualifications.
For many degrees, we require you to have studied specific subjects at Higher Level (HL).
You must obtain the award of Diploma at a specific overall grade and achieve specific grades in three HL subjects.
You must achieve at least Grade 5 at Standard Level (SL) in English to be considered for entry.
If you are made an offer from Edinburgh and decide to accept, either as your Firm or Insurance choice, you should make sure that we receive your IB results through UCAS when they are released.
Your school's IB Diploma programme coordinator will be able to help you do this. You can find instructions for IB centres on the release of IB Diploma results to UCAS on the IB website.
Covid-19 guidance on resits
If you were not happy with your centre assessed grades (CAGs) in 2020, and you are taking exams to improve your grades, we will consider these as your first attempt, and not as resits. We will accept the highest grade you achieve, whether that is your centre assessed grade or your subsequent exam grade.
IB Mathematics pathways
As of 2019, two pathways were introduced for IB Mathematics. From 2021, please refer to the degree finder for accepted pathways for the degree you are applying for.
