What is IB?
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is more broad-based than the A levels, requiring students to take six subjects and Theory of Knowledge, a course combining philosophy, religion and logical reasoning. Students also take a second language, do research, write a 4,000-word essay and participate in a community service project.
