International Baccalaureate – Diploma Programme* proposedGrades XI & XII
Areas of emphasis:
- The IB Diploma is an internationally recognised, comprehensive and balanced 2-year, pre-University curriculum.
- The IB Diploma is widely considered to be a transformational educational experience whose academic rigour prepares students for the demanding workloads and approaches to learning of the best national and international university programmes. The IBDP Years build on critical thinking skills and awareness of world issues, and enable young learners to apply their knowledge to problem solving situations in order to affect solutions.
- The programme structure requires learners to study 6 subjects from across 6 subject groups and includes the Diploma Core comprising Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay.
- Students will take some subjects at higher level (HL) and some at standard level (SL). This choice format allows students to explore subjects of personal interest in greater depth, while offering them the option to explore a range of other subjects as well. Students would be required to opt for at least three (but not more than four) subjects at Higher Level and the remaining subjects at Standard Level.
- All subjects are studied in interconnection with each other. Inherent to the programme design is the incorporation of international perspectives, critical reflection, independent research and an application of knowledge and skills through social and community outreach projects.
- Career and college counselling is a core element of the two-year programme which helps opens up to learners a multitude of avenues for the next big leap in their educational and career paths.
