    What docs are needed for getting equivalency from IBCC

    I need to ask what docs are needed by IBCC for making equivalency for High School graduates and for how long this whole process takes.
    What if the examination/result of 12th grade is pending ,does IBCC make provisional equivalency .This situation arises for many schools such as AKU which accepts application till February only whereas most students take their 12th grade exams in June.
    Seniors please shed some light.
