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.
