About the IB Diploma

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) is an academically enriching two-year Sixth Form qualification. The strength of the IB programme lies in its holistic structure. As well as requiring academic rigour in the six subjects studied across Mathematics, Sciences, Languages, Arts, and the Humanities, the IB core components ensure that all pupils have a broad education, allowing them to develop their creative and critical thinking abilities and their research skills.

The IB Diploma is graded out of 45. A maximum of 7 points is awarded for each of the 3 higher level (HL) and 3 standard level (SL) subjects. A maximum of 3 further points is awarded for the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge course. All grades are associated with clear 18 guidelines which explain the standard achieved by each pupil.
