Each IB Learner creates his or her curriculum profile to a large extent by themselves. The student’s task is to choose one subject from each of 5 groups, which ensures the breadth of knowledge and deep understanding of:
- the student’s best language,
- additional language(s),
- the social sciences,
- the experimental sciences
Each student can choose to study an artistic group 6 subject or study an additional subject from the above mentioned groups.
At least three (but not more than four) subjects have to be taken at higher level (240 teaching hours), while the other subjects are taken at standard level (150 teaching hours).
