The IB Diploma Programme is widely recognized for its high academic standards. Assessment
is varied and takes place over two years, with final examinations in each subject. Students’
work is assessed by an international board of examiners who are themselves rigorously
trained and monitored by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).
Subjects are scored on a 1-7 scale with a further three points available for theory of knowledge
and the extended essay. Students who display good levels of performance across all six subjects
and achieve a minimum of 24 points (out of a possible 45) are awarded the diploma. All others
receive a certificate for each of the subjects completed.
