Hello everybody,

THIS WILL TAKE YOU NO LONGER THAN 30 SECONDS AND WILL HELP MANY FORMER STUDENTS AND FUTURE ONES TOO, SO PLEASE HELP!!

As you may well know, these year's IBDP Physics HL and SL exams have been horrendous. They have been really difficult and seniors have been complaining about this fact. They have said it has been one of the most challenging papers they have ever done. They have also stated that the exam has been more difficult than any of the past papers they've ever done, and have been really frustrated by this fact because grade boundaries are really high and it is very difficult to score a high percentage on the exam. Grade boundaries are really high and we are going to, with all our energy, try to reach the IBO and somehow convince them to lower them for everybody around the world to have a more pleasing experience when sitting the exam. With lower grade boundaries, it will be easier to not only score higher marks, but also pass, which for many students seems impossible. By signing this petition you help not only May 2019 students, but future students, because the grade boundary will most likely stay the same if lowered. Keep in mind that the IBO is there to provide a better high school education and wants nobody to fail, therefore they will may consider helping us. In the past this “grade boundary-lowering” has occurred for mathematics, and boundaries have stayed pretty much the same, so why not trying for physics. Thank you everybody in advance and we hope to make this dream come true.

Thank you for your time,

A former IB student
