Moving Students between IB Year Groups

In some instances, you may need to move a student to a different IB year group. These cases could include:

  • A student who is repeating a year
  • A student who was added to an IB year group incorrectly

Note: If you wish to move an entire group of students as they graduate or advance to a new grade, please refer to our tutorial on Transitioning to a New Academic Year.

Admin users can move students from one year group to another via Settings > School Directory > Memberships.

Via Settings > School Directory > Memberships

Alternatively, you can reassign the student via Settings > School Directory > Memberships.

To remove a student, use the dropdown under Year Groups to locate the student's original year group. Check the box next to the left or "remove" on the right of their name. Click Confirm Assignments.

To add a student, select the student's new year group under the Year Groups dropdown. Under Available Students, select Not in any IB group. Check the box next to the left of their name. Click the arrow on the centre of the page, Confirm Assignments.

Note: This method can also be used to add or remove students from classes and activity groups.
