the IB has existed for so long now and I've never heard of petitions being made in the past years. I think it's really bad that people are just making petitions about everything... like grow up! if you didn't study enough it's your fault! don't make out whole graduating "class"(people doing ib 16) look like a bunch of lazy people! This is IB!! It is supposed to be hard!

I don't think it'll go that far.

I honestly don't find anything wrong with what IB did.. And I agree with donesoon.. The petitions are just making the class of 2016 seems like they're lazy. And I agree with azouev that universities wouldn't appreciate the level of the course being eased just because people are making petitions with every little change here and there.

The only petition that is worth while in my opinion is the physics petition all the other exams weren't that bad if you studied and or had a good teacher that covered all the info well. But at least in my program this year is one of the laziest years. There are only about 5/97 students that feel like they have a snowballs chance in hell at attaining the diploma. I myself no I won't be receiving my diploma because of my IA performance, so my effort is pretty nonexistent

There was certainly clearly a need for both the Biology and Physics petition as my sixth form has been contacted by the IB stating that there was an issue with the exams.
