International Baccalaureate Conversion in India
At a meeting in New Delhi on 26th April 1994 attended by the Secretary
General of the Association of Indian Universities and the IBO, a revised
recognition and acceptance agreement was approved of the IB Diploma as
an entry qualification to all universities in India.
- Medical courses: Higher Level passes in Physics, Chemistry and Biology with Standard Level passes in English A1, A2 or B. The medical degree courses include MBBS, BDS, B. Pharm., nursing and BPT.
- Engineering Courses: Higher Level passes in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with Standard Level English A1, A2 or B. Engineering courses include B. Eng. in all streams - civil, mechanical, electrical, electronics, instrumentation, computer, aeronautical engineering etc.
Application for admission to first degree courses in the humanities/social sciences or basic sciences (physics, chemistry, biology) should be made direct to the universities. The academic year at most Indian universities begins in the first week of June.
The admission requirements for professional courses are outlined separately for Indian foreign nationals. Indian nationals with the IB Diploma may compete with other students for the State Level / All India Entrance Examination.
Payment seats in professional courses (engineering and medicine) are also offered on a restricted basis to Indian students/non-resident Indians/foreign nationals on payment of an economic fee.
Additional information and further assistance can be obtained by writing to the Joint Secretary of the Association of Indian Universities or to the IB Asia-Pacific South Asia Regional Representative.
