IB Subject Choices

The IB Diploma offers a rich and stimulating blend of subjects designed to provide an holistic Sixth Form programme combining academic study with personal development.

Pupils can choose one subject from each of six groups, nominating three as Higher Level (HL) and three as Standard Level (SL). Their Higher Level choices provide for the opportunity of specialising in those subjects and benefit from more tuition and reflect the extra work required.

Points awarded at IB

The IB Diploma is awarded out of a total of 45 points, with 24 points deemed a pass. All subjects are worth 7 points, and the CORE is worth 3.
