The programme takes two years of studies and finishes with students sitting external examinations in May session. In order to be eligible for the final diploma, candidates must complete their six courses, each selected from a different subject group. Of the six subjects, minimum three must be selected on a Higher Level (HL), and a maximum of three on a Standard Level (SL). A more demanding option available for the candidates is a course with four subjects on a Higher Level, and two on a Standard Level.
In addition to that, it is required for each IBDP student to complete the course in Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Creativity-Activity-Service (CAS) programme, and submit an Extended Essay.
- Theory of Knowledge encourages students to reflect on the nature of knowledge and critically examine varied ways of knowing and areas of knowledge.
- Extended Essay is a requirement that engages students in independent research through an in-depth study of one of the subjects they already do.
- Creativity-Action-Service (CAS) encourages students to learn actively from creative, sporting and charity activities undertaken at school and outside the school.
Despite its strict demands, the programme greatly prepares students for success in higher education and encourages them to become conscious and active members of global society.
