Top 10 Reasons to Choose the International Baccalaureate


2 The IB offers breadth and depth

Some people dismiss the IB as ‘just like the old O-levels’ and this is a fallacy. There is plenty of opportunity to delve down into complex and challenging issues because students must cover higher as well as standard level options.

Higher and standard level options
Usually students select one subject from each of the following groups. These can be done at a variety of levels

  • Group 1: (first language) English
  • Group 2: (second language) French, German, Spanish, Mandarin, Latin, Greek (some at three different levels)
  • Group 3: (individuals and societies) business and management,    economics, geography or history
  • Group 4: (experimental sciences) biology, chemistry or physics
  • Group 5: Mathematics course (there are three different levels)
  • Group 6: Arts course, for instance music, theatre arts or visual arts
The system is flexible. Instead of a group 6 subject, one extra subject is allowed from groups 2 to 4 (so students can study two languages, two humanities, two sciences).
