The Internal Assessment component (IA) accounts for 30% of the Standard Level grade and 20% of the Higher Level Grade.
The IA consists out of 5 parts and can be no longer than 2000 words (excluding any appendixes & footnotes/bibliographies). The video can be no longer than 7 minutes.

Criterion C – Development – 12 marks
Criterion D – Functionality (Video) – 4 marks
Criterion E – Evaluation – 6 marks
