About the IB Diploma Programme (DP)

The IB Diploma Programme at ACS(I)

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) aims to develop students with breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. ACS (Independent) IB students offer six subjects in addition to the three core elements.

The three core elements are:

  • Theory of knowledge, in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know.
  • The extended essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper.
  • Creativity, activity, service, in which students complete a project related to those three concepts.

The six subject groups are:

The maximum grade for each subject is 7 points with a maximum of 3 bonus points based on their performance for the EE, TOK and CAS. The diploma is awarded to students who achieve a minimum score of 24 (out of a possible total of 45) and fulfill other minimum requirements. Student results are determined by performance against set standards, not by each student’s position in the overall rank order.
