As a parent considering the IB pathway for your child, or a student choosing between IB and the A Levels, there’s naturally a lot to research on regarding the two academic programmes and exams. Aside from looking at how well-regarded the qualifications are and what options of schools there are, what many students will be interested in is this: the subjects they will be studying.
After all, these subjects are what they will be facing daily for at least 2 years, in the lead up to their final examinations. In particular, if there is any specific subject you wish to study, it is crucial to check if the programme (and school) you choose offers it.
Our partnered professional educational consultants can provide you with personalised advice and registration help for IB or university matters. Or for those who are just doing your own research, below’s our quick guide to IB subjects, the subject combination framework, as well as how these subjects are assessed and graded.
