Do overseas universities know about the IB?

I want to apply to the U.S. and the U.K. but I’m not sure whether they’ll accept my IB results because I took my exams in New Zealand. Is this ok?

The IB is international recognised world wide at all leading universities. Regardless of where you sit your IB exams, the results mean the same thing. However, with programmes such as NCEA, it is harder for universities to understand the results and is often hard to compare them to other international programmes, as it is only offered in NZ.
