  International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)
  

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a demanding pre-university course which is designed for highly motivated secondary school students. The programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB Diploma holders access to the world's leading universities. The Diploma programme aims to develop students to have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge and flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.


The IB Diploma Programme is a comprehensive 2-year international curriculum, available in English, to be taken by students after the successful completion of Class 10 (CBSE-i, CBSE, IGCSE, or any other curriculum equivalent to Class 10). It generally allows students to fulfil the requirements of their national or state education systems.


The Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum is made up six subject groups and the core comprises Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) and Extended Essay. Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service
