Do universities have to know you’re in the IB program?

If you’re in IB is this disclosed to all universities? Also, do you have to give in your IB marks or can you apply only using converted marks? My converted marks look a lot better than my IB marks, plus the school I’d like to go to (McGill) has crazy requirements for IB grades but the normal Ontario requirements are much lower.

  1. Of course. It’s part of your academic record. Trying to mask or manipulate your grades in any way is considered academic dishonesty.

  2. For Ontario universities you will be applying with your converted grades. IB only counts for transfer credit not admissions. Your academic transcript will only list Ontario course codes and show your converted grades. If you want your IB courses assessed for transfer credit you have to arrange to have your marks sent directly from the IB organizers. It’s the same for McGill. They specifically say “If you are completing the IB Diploma or individual IB Diploma Courses you will normally be considered for admission based on your high school record and a ‘top-6’ average” so they will be looking at your converted grades too. It is not academic dishonesty not to disclose that you did IB since the only value to it is for transfer credit.
