IBDP: International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme


At Sreenidhi International School, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) for students aged 16 to 19 helps develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. It is a demanding two-year curriculum placing strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship leading to final examinations and a qualification that is welcomed by leading universities around the world.

It offers a comprehensive curriculum, emphasizes rigor and excellence in academic preparation, promotes international understanding, fosters intellectual inquiry and a humanitarian perspective.
 
At Sreenidhi International School, students learn more than a collection of facts. The Diploma Programme prepares students for university and encourages them to:
  • Ask challenging questions.
  • Learn how to learn.
  • Develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture.
  • Develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.
The curriculum contains six subject groups together with a core made up of three separate parts. This is illustrated by a hexagon with the three parts of the core at its centre.

Students study six subjects concurrently. These include two languages, one subject from individuals and societies (group 3), one experimental science (group 4), one mathematics subject (group 5), and one subject from the arts (group 6) or another subject from group 1 to 5.
 
                                                                                 
Candidates for the diploma study six subjects selected from the subject groups. Normally three subjects are studied at higher level (courses representing 240 teaching hours), and the remaining three subjects are studied at standard level (courses representing 150 teaching hours). For all three parts of the core extended essay, theory of knowledge and creativity, action, service are compulsory and are central to the philosophy of the Diploma Programme.
  • The extended essay has a prescribed limit of 4,000 words. It offers the opportunity to investigate a topic of individual interest, and acquaints students with the independent research and writing skills expected at university.
  • The interdisciplinary theory of knowledge (TOK) course is designed to provide coherence by exploring the nature of knowledge across disciplines, encouraging an appreciation of other cultural perspectives.
  • Participation in the school’s creativity, action, service (CAS) programme encourages candidates to be involved in artistic pursuits, sports and community service work, thus fostering students’ awareness and appreciation of life outside the academic arena.
