Project Formatting Guidance

The following formatting is recommended for eCoursework:
  •  Arial font size 12 (where the language / script supports it) 
  •  Double-line spacing 
  •  Numbered pages 
  •  Portrait orientation (rather than landscape) – except where it is necessary to accommodate a specific item such as a graph or illustration
The purpose of this guidance is to make the script as easy as possible to read and mark for the examiner.


Technical Specifications:  File sizes and file types

  • It is recommended that videos are submitted in .mp4 format. However, both .mov and .m4v are acceptable because they will be converted into .mp4 format by the IB.
  • The maximum file size for a document is 50MB, irrespective of whether the document contains images.
  • Candidates should be advised to keep files to a reasonable size to help prevent any difficulties with upload and marking, and it is the expectation that most documents will be considerably less than 50MB. Some subject guides may indicate a maximum file size for a particular component.  
Effective Citing and Referencing 
  • It is vitally important that all coursework is the authentic work of the candidate, and that any words and thoughts of others are correctly referenced.
  • The candidate submission includes a declaration "that this work is my own work and is the final version. I have acknowledged each use of the words or ideas of another person, whether written, oral or visual" .
  • Effective immediately, 100% of coursework received by the IB will be checked via a new text matching software for possible collusion and plagiarism. Any potential breaches to regulations will be investigated by the IB and the candidate may not receive a grade for the subject.
