Our Student Story | Lara, IBDP Student
What is the IB Diploma Programme?

The IB Diploma Programme is a two-year pre-university course for students aged 16-18. The curriculum comprises of six academic subjects, along with the IB core of Creativity Activity Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (TOK), and the Extended Essay (EE). Students are required to study six courses at a standard or higher level. To ensure a breadth of learning, they select one subject from each of five groups. Their sixth subject can be from Group 6: The Arts, or a second subject from Groups 1-5.

  • Group 1: Studies in Language and/or Literature.
  • Group 2: Language Acquisition.
  • Group 3: Individuals and Societies (Geography, History, Economics, Business Management)
  • Group 4: Experimental Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Design).
  • Group 5: Mathematics.
  • Group 6: The Arts (Visual Arts, Film, Music)
What are the advantages of the IB Diploma Programme?
  • One of the most recognised and highly regarded high school diplomas accepted by the world’s leading universities
  • It favours an international approach so that students are educated to become world citizens, preparing them for careers wherever they choose
  • Due to the unique nature of the IB Diploma Programme, students are often better prepared for success in a university environment. The IBDP teaches students the core skills required for university studies, such as critical thinking, self-learning and analysis.
  • It assesses more than examination techniques – students learn to understand not just memorise facts and topics
