Does failing IB will get your uni offers rescinded in the U.S. ?

I'm about to have my IB Final Exams and wanted to ask a quick question in case of the worst possible scenario where I fail IB. I'm going to Purdue and will this means that my offer get rescinded?

    If your final transcript grades are based in whole on your IB scores and you fail the exam, then yes, you run the risk of being rescinded, as a US applicant would be if s/he presented a D or F on the final transcript.

    If your IB scores do not figure in to your transcript grade, then no; in that case it would be like a US student failing an AP exam, but passing the class.

    Having said that, don't worry about things that have not happened and may not happen. More than likely, you'll pass your IB exams and will be fine. The admissions process is stressful enough without worrying about what might occur. Good luck.
