The OIB Examination

The International Option of the French baccalaureate (OIB) is the school-leaving examination taken by St Germain students.  For an introduction to this innovative and forward-looking bilingual diploma, please click on Guide to the OIB .

Over twenty other schools also prepare their students for this examination.  We are all members of an association supporting the British version of the OIB called ASIBA.  The association’s website - - will give you a wealth of information about how the system operates and is well worth a visit.  You will also see how the Lycée International at St Germain-en-Laye – the main OIB examination centre – fits into the general picture.
