The syllabus of the IB programme is the result of meticulous planning based on the best research and the latest techniques in the field of education. It offers students an international education that is both flexible in its scope and progressive in its approach.
IBDP students study three subjects at Higher Level (HL) and three at Standard Level (SL). They study HL subjects for a greater number of hours (240 teaching hours) and in greater depth than SL subjects
(150 teaching hours). Thus, the IBD student combines a broad-based education with detailed study.
The IBDP curriculum contains six subject groups together with a core made up of three separate parts.
The chart above sheds further light on the options available within the programme.
Students choose a total of six subjects from the above Subject Group. In addition, all IBDP students are required to undertake original research to produce a 4,000-word Extended Essay, follow an interdisciplinary course on the Theory of Knowledge, and participate in the Creativity, Action and Service Programme.
