  1. 1. Full IB Diploma / IB Course Mike Carroll - Vice Principal (Secondary) Wednesday 29 January, 2014
  2. 2.  The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme is a comprehensive and rigorous two year curriculum  a deliberate compromise between the specialization required in some national systems and the breadth preferred in others.  The Diploma Programme is highly regarded for entry to university education throughout the world.  IB students routinely gain admission to some of the best known universities in the world. Most of these institutions have established recognition policies for the IB diploma. The IBO maintains updated information about university recognition which can be accessed at http://www.ibo.org/country.
  3. 3. Who should take the IB Diploma?  There are two groups of students who should undertake the IB Diploma:  those who need it for entrance to the universities of their choice  those who, academically able and motivated, want to undertake a challenging course of study.
  4. 4. What Do We Look For in IB Diploma Students?  Desire  Self-discipline, ability to ask questions, time management  Thinks critically  Competence and fluency in expressing oneself in English  An independent and cooperative learner
  5. 5. Requirements of the Diploma Programme  Study of SIX subjects covering major fields of learning.  3 subjects studied at HL to allow for specialization in certain     areas. 3 subjects studied at SL to ensure a broad education.

Core Requirements of the IB Programme In addition to the six subjects all students:  Follow a course in the Theory of Knowledge (TOK)  composed of questions!  the most central of these is “How do we know?”  assessment is via a 1400 to 1600 philosophical essay and an oral presentation  Engage in a substantial piece of research resulting in an Extended Essay (EE)  undertake a substantial piece of original research and write an extended essay of about 4,000 words.  Participate in an extra-curricular programme entitled Creativity, Action and Service (CAS)
  9. 9. The IB Grading System The grading scheme in use for IB examinations is: 1. very poor 2. poor 3. mediocre 4. satisfactory 5. good 6. very good 7. excellent
  10. 10. Assessment  External Assessments – 50% to 80%, 2 or 3 papers  Internal Assessments (IAs) – 20% to 50%, moderated by IBO  6 subjects (1 to 7 points each) Maximum = 6 x 7points = 42 points  TOK and EE (Up to 3 bonus points available) Maximum Total Points = 42 + 3 = 45 points  Completion of CAS is mandatory!
  11. 11. If the Full IB Diploma is not for you:  IB Course Students  6 or less subjects  No EE, TOK requirement  Precludes students from some institutions (US is a good option)  A-Level / AS- Level  3 A-Level subjects only or 2 A-Level plus 2 AS-Level  Alternate pathways to tertiary institutions  IGCSE  2+2 (US)  Foundation courses
  12. 12. Current Grade Ten When deciding which subjects to take there are a number of factors which should be considered:  Which subjects do you enjoy?  Which subjects are you good at?  What does the course involve?  What type of career(s) are you interested in?  What are the requirements of the universities at which you intend to apply?
  13. 13. Our Entry Procedures All students seeking admission to the IB Diploma programme will be expected to:  Have successfully completed the IGCSE with at least 5 ‘B’ grades  IGCSE candidates will achieve A*, A, B, C, D, E, F, G or U for each subject.  Grade A* is awarded to those candidates showing highest ability in a subject  Grade G for a minimum satisfactory performance.  Performance below the standard of G are ungraded (U).  A minimum grade of C is prerequisite to enter the upper level of study for most institutions around the world.  Satisfy the pre-requisites for intended subjects  Have a good work ethic - attendance, punctuality, preparation and participation in lessons, homework, meeting deadlines

  19. 19. Our expectations  Educationally, the next 2 years are the most important of a student’s life  Workload will get progressively higher and students must work hard and submit work punctually and to the highest standard they are capable of  Parents must support and monitor their children
  20. 20. IB Results There has been a steady increase in students’ performance in the IB over the past five years culminating in an average score of 38.05 for full diploma students in the 2012-2013 academic year. We hope and expect that this trend will continue. Our graduating students have been rewarded with offers from some of the World’s most prestigious Universities including Oxford University, UK (6), Imperial College, London (5), University College, London (4), King's College , London (19), McGill University, Canada (21), University of Michigan, USA (22), NUS (24), HKU (26), University of Melbourne (31).
