Students opt for this programme for several reasons, one being the good scope in the future. Wondering if you fulfil the eligibility criteria for the programme? Here’s a checklist for the students to enrol in this programme. The article would also explain the curriculum in detail for further benefits.
Core components of the IB curriculum
The IB curriculum has three core components which comprise the following:
Theory of Knowledge: The theory of knowledge component mainly emphasises philosophical thinking. It requires students to ponder significant world issues and learn the why’s and how’s of learning. This component does not focus on textbook learning alone. Instead, the students should develop critical and analytical thinking skills for this component. Also, students do not have to appear for any examination in the theory of knowledge course. Instead, they must write an essay and give an oral presentation.
Extended Essay: You should have come across courses that require students to submit a research paper or a thesis. While such a thesis can go on for pages, IB requires students to submit a mini-thesis. The thesis should be 4000 words and in the form of a research paper. The students can select a topic based on their interests and get it approved by IB. Once approved, students work under a supervisor and complete the extended essay. The extended essay is a very vital part of the IB curriculum. While, on the one hand, it reflects the student’s interests, it also sheds light on the students’ research and critical thinking abilities.
Students must spend a lot of time on their extended essays and take this component seriously as it has significant weightage. It can also strengthen their chances of admission to a university. Talking about the research topic can help impress the professors during the interview.
Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) Project: The IB curriculum is not just about textual learning or gaining knowledge. Instead, students should engage in various extracurricular activities. Here are some of the components:
Creativity: The IB course focuses on the creativity of students. Whether playing an instrument or acting in a play, students can discover and show their creative side.
Activity: Students can participate in extracurricular activities. It can be any outdoor game, and this component is specifically designed for the physical well-being of the students.
Service: Any person can be successful with community service. The IB programme encourages students to engage in social services and develop compassion.
Requirements for IB Diploma
Students must fulfil the following criteria in an IB programme:
- Meet all the CAS requirements
- There must not be more than two grade 2s awarded (SL or HL)
- There should not be more than three grade 3s or below granted (SL or HL)
- Students must have at least 12 points in HL subjects.
Students prefer the IB course for its broader approach and innovative curriculum. While the course focuses adequately on academics, it also focuses on overall personality development. The IB course also expands future opportunities for students. Starting from studying abroad to widening employment scopes, this course encompasses all that high school students aspire to. However, reviewing the curriculum and requirements would be best before applying for this course. Remember to check the school fees in Singapore too.
