Grandmaster since 2020, an International Master since 2018 and a FIDE Master since 2016.

Days short of his 15th birthday, Ivić was a member of the silver medal-winning U18 Serbian team (lost to Germany on additional criteria) at the 2017 European Youth Team Chess Championship, scoring 6/7 on board 4, which earned him individual gold medal for his board and was also best overall result in the tournament according to points.
