The “Option International” of the Baccalaureat – British Section

The OIB is the general French Baccalaureat diploma where it is added « Option Internationale » and the language section in which the student is enrolled. It is a specific feature of the French Baccalaureat that lays more emphasis on knowing the culture and language of the partner country.

The OIB is made of mandatory core examinations that correspond to each stream, except for the written and oral examinations in modern Languages A (LVA) which is English at IFS, and History-Geography.

Theses examinations are replaced by two specific examinations: Languages and Literature and History-Geography, with each having an oral and a written section. These specific examinations are done in the language of the chosen section and have a different weight that can make up between 32 and 37% of the final grade of the Baccalaureat, depending on the stream.
