   Why Offer the IB DP?
   The DP Curriculum
   Assessment and Exams
   Pathway to University

The DP curriculum is made up of the DP core and six subject groups.

               Programme model

The Core

The three areas of the DP Core aim to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills:

1.- Theory of Knowledge – students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know (Click here).
2.- The Extended Essay – an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper (Click here).
3.- Creativity, Activity, Service(CAS) – students complete a project related to those three concepts (Click here).

The Six Subject Groups

Group 1: Studies in Language and Literature (Theory of Knowledge).

Group 2: Language Acquisition (Language Acquisition).

Group 3: Individuals and Societies (Individuals and Societies).

Group 4: Sciences (Sciences).

Group 5: Mathematics (Mathematics).

Group 6: The Arts (The Arts).

There are different courses within each subject group.

Choosing Subjects In The Diploma Programme

Students choose one course from each of the subject groups.

They may, however, opt to study an additional Sciences course, instead of a course in The Arts.

There is also the possibility of studying for a Bilingual Diploma (two Group 1 Languages instead of one from Group 1 and one from Group 2).

Students will take some subjects at Higher Level (HL) & some at Standard Level (SL):

+ HL and SL courses differ in scope but are measured according to the same grade descriptors, with students expected to demonstrate a greater body of knowledge, understanding and skills at Higher Level.

+ Each student takes at least three (but not more than four) subjects at Higher Level, and the remaining at Standard Level.

+ Standard level subjects take up 150 teaching hours; Higher level comprises 240 teaching hours.
