What’s After IGCSE?

IB Diploma Programme 

The IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) is a rigorous, challenging and balanced two-year university-preparation programme for students aged 16 to 19.


This offers students the choice to specialise in certain subjects.


  • Students select one course from each subject group (The arts may be replaced with another subject).
  • At least two languages are studied.
  • At least three courses are taken at a higher level (HL), generally 240 hours of instruction. Standard level (SL) courses are typically 150 hours.
  • All courses are designed to span two years, assessed with the same level of rigour and equally weighted.


A compulsory core comprises three distinct components, and is an integral part of the DP student experience:


  • Theory of knowledge (TOK) 
  • The extended essay (EE) 
  • Creativity, activity, service (CAS) 


The IB DP curriculum is said to be more rigorous and challenging than the Cambridge/Edexcel curriculum. Students have to be prepared to work harder than before if they are considering to enrol into an IB curriculum. 


Transitioning from IGCSE to IB can be a huge step, read on the 4 Tips to Help You Smoothly Transit to Other Curriculum. Or, you can read more specifically, how you can Transition from IGCSE to IB curriculum
