It is a stated aim of TOK that students should become aware of the interpretative nature of knowledge, including personal ideological biases, regardless of whether, ultimately, these biases are retained, revised or rejected.

    22. 22. What to ExpectAs stated earlier, the IB Diploma Programme is rigorous. Therefore, asa prospective IB Candidate you can expect to:∀Learn and use time-management skills. IB is not an honors program, but your success largelydepends on your ability to organize your time.∀Seek assistance when necessary. You will have to build strong working relationships withstaff, administration and your peers. Be responsible and stay motivated; your levels of responsibility and motivation are also key toyour success in IB. Get to know your school and local community. Learn from peers as well as professionals. Prioritize. IB takes much of your time outside school, but if you can prioritize, you cancontinue most of your extra-curricular activities.
    23. 23. Earning the Diploma• IB grading differs from the traditional High School format. Instead of percentages, IB classes are graded on a point scale of 1(minimum) to 7 (maximum). Then, there are three other points offered for CAS, TOK and Extended Essay. This makes the maximum total of points that a student can earn 45. 6 subjects x 7 + 3 bonus = 45 pointsExtended Essay and TOK are graded on a letter scale of A (Excellent) to E (Elementary). If a student earns an E in TOK or on the Extended Essay, at least 28 points must be awarded to earn the diploma. Two E grades for these components means non-completion of the Diploma.
