Mock and Final Exam Structure

In your final exam, your papers are:

SL

  • Paper 1: Total of 70 marks in 1h30 — 30 short-answer, 40 long-answer
  • Paper 2: Total of 70 marks in 1h30, 40 marks extended response and algorithm creation, 30 marks case study

HL

  • Paper 1: Total of 100 marks in 2h15 — 40 short-answer, 60 long-answer
  • Paper 2: Total of 100 marks in 2h15, 60 marks extended response and algorithm creation, 40 marks case study.

Your mock is just one three-hour exam, so giving you a similar structure as your final exam you can expect:

  • 1h30 of Paper 1-type questions  with the same breakdown between short and longer answers (worth around 70 marks)
  • 1h30 of Paper 2-type questions (worth around 70 marks), of which about 40 minutes (and about 27 marks) will go to the case study
