Subject Selection: Starting the IB right

Choosing the right subjects can set up a student for life. Make sure your child starts the IB on the right foot by speaking with an EIB Consultant to pick the perfect subjects.

The challenge of IB subject selection

The IB Diploma offers students breadth and rigour, while also delaying the overly-early specialisation other educational programmes can encourage students into. For some, however, the Diploma can feel overly restrictive, and the need to take a variety of subjects limiting when it comes to curating their post-16 education (particularly for students with an idea of the career they'd like to follow). As a result, it can potentially disadvantage students when making their university applications.

We’ve been answering questions about the IB for over 10 years and our IB Support Options have been shaped by our experience offering unparalleled insight into the IB to families and students. We offer structured consultations which we know meet the needs of many families, as well as bespoke offerings that allow EIB and families to explore their priorities and needs at a pace and level of detail which suits them.

Help finding the perfect balance for each student

Not only do students need to navigate this complex, new system (with 'subject areas', 'Highers' and 'Standards', the 'Extended Essay', 'TOK', 'CAS' etc.) and make choices with life-changing potential, but are also required to at a young age. Doing so demands not only an in-depth understanding of how IB subject selection works, but also their likely future attainment, career paths, university entry requirements, individual subject assessment methods

Donella called me absolutely raving about Sam and the conversation they had. She said that he had a bunch of ideas that were helpful to her and she sounded really enthused. We all appreciate the connection so much. I think it gave her some valuable perspective and things to think about.

Mathematics Route & Level Advice +

In 2019 the IBO introduced significant changes to the Mathematics syllabus on the IB, replacing the previous system of Maths delivered at Higher Level, Standard Level, and Studies with a two-route system, requiring students to choose between 'Maths: Applications & Interpretations' and 'Maths: Analysis & Approaches', each at Higher or Standard Level. The new syllabus will be first assessed by the cohort graduating in May 2021.

As a result, the new the routes offer students differing theoretical approaches to Maths, as well as a divergent skillset. The response from UK universities has been varied, with some - like the University of Oxford - accepting either route and others - like the University of Cambridge - insisting students take Analysis & Approaches. Responses across the sector have been similarly varied.

As a result, it is critical students make the correct decision in choosing their Maths route on the IB so as not to be disadvantaged at a later date. Alongside our insight into the changes as a team of Coordinators and Consultants, and EIB Admission's expertise in university applications, we've also worked closely with IBO Examiners to prepare our tutoring team for the new syllabus. As a result, we've acquired a sophisticated understanding of the considerations students must make when choosing their Mathematics route so as to be able advise students to make the best choice for them.

Mathematics Route & Level Advice packages cover:

  • Maths aptitude and past attainment
  • Topic (algebra, functions, calculus etc.) exposure and preference
  • University, degree and career ambitions
  • Graphic calculator skills
