Grade 11 and 12 students embark on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
The Diploma Programme is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations.
It is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19.
Each examined subject is graded on a scale of 1 (minimum) to 7 (maximum).
Students must offer three subjects at Higher Level (HL) and three at Standard Level (SL).
The award of the Diploma requires a minimum total of 24 points and completion of three additional requirements:
- the Extended Essay
- Theory of Knowledge (TOK) – an interdisciplinary requirement intended to stimulate critical, epistemological reflection on knowledge and experience gained inside and outside the classroom
- Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) – students are expected to spend a minimum of 150 hours in two years on creative, sport and service activities in the local community.
The maximum score of 45 points includes 3 bonus points for a good work done in the extended essay and TOK.
