Diploma Programme Subject Choices
IB Diploma students need to select two Language courses (min. 1 from Group 1 - Language and Literature), a course from the Individuals & Societies group, a Science course, a Mathematics course, and Visual Arts or an additional subject from group 2, 3 or 4.
In Grade 12, students will normally follow 3 of their subjects at Higher Level (HL) and the remaining 3 subjects at Standard Level (SL).
Examiners appointed by the IBO assess candidates’ work in the Diploma Programme examinations and other forms of external assessment using common markschemes. This external assessment may be complemented by internal assessment by schools of other required work, moderated by IBO examiners.
Performance in each subject is graded on a scale of 1 point (minimum) to 7 points (maximum). For the IB diploma, a maximum of 3 points is awarded for combined performance in theory of knowledge and the extended essay. The maximum total Diploma Programme points score is, therefore, 45.
For each of the subjects in the DP the syllabus and assessment model are prescribed in great detail.
