The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a rigorous curriculum focused on the holistic development of every individual student as they develop an inquiring, knowledgeable, principled, reflective and communicative profile. It encourages students of all ages to think critically, challenge assumptions and solve complex problems across both local and global contexts.
Every student has to choose six subjects – three at the Higher Level and three at Standard Level. The key to success is choosing subjects that the student is interested in. Assessing one’s own strengths and weaknesses is a good strategy, and strength in a subject is almost always directly connected to the student’s interest – if a student is interested in a subject, they would automatically work towards achieving proficiency in it. In this manner, interest and aptitude are correlated.
