Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is IB Education ?
    The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a global leader in international education—developing inquiring, knowledgeable, confident, and caring young people. Our programmes empower school-aged students to take ownership in their own learning and help them develop future-ready skills to make a difference and thrive in a world that changes fast. IB programmes aim to provide an education that enables students to make sense of the complexities of the world around them, as well as equipping them with the skills and dispositions needed for taking responsible action for the future. They provide an education that crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and that champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and meaningful relationships.
  • What are the benefits of IB?
    The IB enables students to direct their own learning pathway and develop the skills and confidence they need to thrive and make a lasting difference. It empowers teachers as the architects of learning excellence, working alongside engaged colleagues in a rewarding career supported by a strong global network. And it brings schools a strong reputation for successful outcomes that uplift the whole community. IB learners are: · encouraged to think critically and solve complex problems · able to drive their own learning · a core part in educational programmes that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world · more culturally aware through the development of a second language · able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
  • What happens after students complete PYP ?
    In PYP 5, students conduct a collaborative unit of inquiry named PYP Exhibition. On successful completion of this unit, students transition to Middle Years Programme (MYP) which starts from Grade 6-10. After MYP, students transition to a competitive Diploma Programme (DP) for two years. From here, most of them receive university scholarships in the most prestigious universities. Some of the most selective universities worldwide recognize the IB diploma and our students are regarded as some of the highest performers in their areas of study. The IB sends transcripts to about 5,000 universities in 100 different countries with top destinations such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Hong Kong, and India.
  • Can the students transition to non-IB school if the change from IB?
    Yes. Transitioning to IB programmes from other curriculums, and vice versa, can certainly be done. Many schools do offer the IB Diploma without the preceding PYP and MYP programmes. For new IB students, it is not just the influx of new content that can be overwhelming. It is also the assessment structure. If your child wants to excel in the IB Diploma, the coursework components like the internal assessments, TOK, and Extended Essay cannot be neglected. Look out for schools that offer a good transition in the year prior to starting the IB Diploma (grade 10, approx. 15-16 year olds) to adequately prepare your child for what is a demanding two-year programme.
  • How do the students transition from other curriculum to IB?
    Students from other curriculum are supported in communication, access to information and with time they develop relevant skills which are referred as Approaches to Learning (ATLs) and include, research, communication, thinking, social and self-management skills. They are also provided with opportunities to develop IB Learner Profile Attributes.
  • Why the IB is different?
    The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they: · encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions · develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools · encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts · develop multilingual students.
  • What are the different age groups for IB students?
    PYP 3-12 years MYP 11-16 years DP 16-19 years
