You will find below a link to the Edusol page (in French) from the French Ministry of National Education that will introduce you to the specificity of each stream.
THE “OPTION INTERNATIONALE” OF THE BACCALAURÉAT (OIB) – BRITISH SECTION
The OIB is the general French Baccalauréat diploma where it is added « Option Internationale » and the language section in which the student is enrolled. It is a specific feature of the French Baccalauréat that lays more emphasis on knowing the culture and language of the partner country.
The OIB is made of mandatory core examinations that correspond to each stream, except for the written and oral examinations in modern Languages 1 (LV1) and History-Geography.
Theses examinations are replaced by two specific examinations: Languages and Literature and History-Geography, with each having an oral and a written section. These specific examinations are done in the language of the chosen section and have a different weight that can make up between 32 and 37% of the final grade of the Baccalauréat, depending on the streams.
In case of exemption, you must provide the Office of Examinations with a official medical certificate (see below)
