How do students choose IB subjects?

Core subjects are compulsory for all students. From each of the five elective subject groups, students choose one subject, while the sixth subject they can select from any group.

In Theory of Knowledge, students reflect on the nature of knowledge and discuss the claims they use to support their theories.

The Extended Essay is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper.

In Creativity, Activity, Service, students complete a project related to those three concepts.

The International School has prepared special subject groups in the IB Diploma Programme, designed to help students obtain the prestigious IB diploma, rather than just certificates in individual subjects.

These subjects comprise Higher Level (HL) and Standard Level (SL) subjects. Students can choose 3 Higher Level subjects, and add 3 Standard Level subjects as a diploma requirement. Standard level subjects take up 150 teaching hours. Higher level comprises 240 teaching hours.


IB diploma requirements

IB subjects from the subject groups are graded on a 1–7 scale, with 7 being the highest score, while in Core subjects, students receive grades E–A , which are then converted into numeric grades.

Extended Essay with ToK are graded on a 0–3 scale. Although CAS does not contribute to the points total, it is a requirement for the IB diploma, which means that a student can earn a total of 45 points.

6 elective subjects x 7 points + 3 points (Core subjects) = 45 points

In order to obtain the renowned IB diploma, students are required to win at least 24 points, with a minimum of 12 points in HL subjects and a D grade in Core subjects.
