What is a Diploma Candidate?

Posted by:

A Diploma Candidate is a student in grade eleven or twelve who is pursuing all the requirements of the IB Diploma Program. All juniors and seniors in the Wichita High School East IB program are Diploma Candidates. Freshmen and sophomores are considered EHS pre-IB students, and become IB Diploma Candidates when they begin their junior year. Students are also able to declare certificate status. A certificate student does not have to complete CAS or the EE, but will enroll in TOK. Certificate students take a minimum of two exams and can sit for a maximum of five exams.
