International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, also known as IBDP, is a two-year educational system that provides internationally accepted qualification for students (typically between the ages of 16 and 19) entering either local universities or universities abroad.
All subjects are assessed internally (such as coursework and internal assessments) and externally (such as examinations). There are two external examinations taking place each year - both May and November respectively. Most international schools would typically provide two to three mock examinations, under timed conditions, before the final examination to monitor the students' current progress and ensure that the students stay on track.
IBDP Subject Selections:
DP Students would need to select their subjects that fall into the following categories :
Group 1: Studies in language and literature
Group 2: Language and acquisition
Group 3: Individuals and societies
Group 4: Experimental science
Group 5: Mathematics and computer science
Group 6: The arts
Students have a choice of either : 1) Choosing 6 subjects from all 6 groups, 2) Choosing an additional subject from Groups 1-5 instead of taking one from Group 6 or 3) Not taking the full diploma (taking 6 subjects without needing to complete Core Requirement 1 and 2) (see below for Core Requirements).
For students who are taking the full diploma, they are required to complete three core requirements:
Core Requirement 1 : Extended Essay (EE): a 4000 word essay based on a topic of a chosen subject
Core Requirement 2: Theory of Knowledge (ToK): a subject that engages students to inquire and explore the understanding of knowledge itself
Core Requirement 3: Creativity, action, service (CAS)
The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole diploma and to satisfactory participation in CAS.
The highest IB score that an IBDP student could attain is 45 points : 42 points for the 6 selected subjects + 3 points from EE and TOK.
