The Diploma at
SAS
The Diploma offers students the best balance between breadth and depth, offering a diversity of subjects while also ensuring students leave the DP with the core skills across disciplines to arrive at any future programme of study well prepared. Of IB schools, the vast majority offer the Diploma, with a smaller proportion choosing to also offer other programmes, like the MYP, PYP, or even the Careers Programme (CP). With many families picking IB schools on their experience with the DP, the information below should help inform you as you consider IB schools.

Average scores are the IB are a useful tool for understanding how well the schools student’s perform in a year, but should be treated with caution. There are lots of ways to judge the performance of an IB school, and average IB score is only one.

Languages at
SAS

Learning new languages is at the core of the IB. Because of this, the number of languages taught by a school can help give an impression of its commitment to this part of the Diploma, while the number of languages spoken at the school can give an indication of how international the school cohort is.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) at
SAS
As the IBO's Middle Years Programme continues to grow and expand into schools across the world, we're eager to share information with families about schools options for students before they start the IB Diploma. At EIB we're fierce advocates for the Middle Years Programme, and our experience helpings families and students make us well-placed to offer impartial, authoritative advice about schools and various education programmes.
Final MYP Year

Read More +

Some IB World Schools choose not to teach the MYP, and some only teach the MYP for the first three years, before transitioning students to other programmes - like IGCSE. The MYP typically runs over five years, so this is the number of years this school runs the MYP for.

Alternative to MYP

Read More +

As schools can approach the MYP in a number of ways, some offer alternative programmes to the MYP. In the UK, this is likely I/GCSEs and outside the UK schools mostly follow national educational programmes.

eAssessments
Yes
No

eAssessments are the IBO’s final set of examination for students taking the Middle Years Programme, however it’s not compulsory that schools make their students sit this exam. All schools must however enter students for external moderation for their Personal Project. You can find our more about the eAssessments on our MYP page.

IGCSEs at
SAS
IGCSEs are the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. IGCSE are broadly kept in line with GCSEs, the 14-16 y/o qualification that students study in the United Kingdom.

This means that not only are IGCSEs flexible and standardised, they're also particularly useful for students who may later go on to apply to study at UK universities and want to avoid the hassle of using domestic 14-16 y/o qualifications when making their UCAS applications.
Choosing Subjects
You can choose from more than 70 different subjects – from maths to English. Available subjects vary depending on your school, country and chosen exam board.
Ability Range
The IGCSE core curriculum is suitable for students who expect to achieve grades C to G.  An extended curriculum offers more challenging content for students aiming for grades A* to C.
Grades & Marking
Your results are assessed using internationally-recognised A* to G grades. The exam papers are all marked centrally in the UK.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) at
SAS
The IBO describes the PYP as offering 'opportunities to inquire into human commonalities through units of inquiry and daily practices. The daily living of the learner profile facilitates students’ understanding of self, openness to others and builds their international-mindedness.'

The PYP is not a requirement for students to enter into the Middle Years Programme (MYP) or International Baccalaureate (IB).
Multi-Lingual
From at least 7 years old, the PYP facilitates second language learning, to equip students with critical language skills at the key developmental stage and to set students up for life.
Transdisciplinary Learning
'Transdisciplinary themes' are built into the Primary Years Programme syllabus, encouraging students to transpose subject learning and thing creatively.
Unique Student Focus
The PYP 'recognises that learners in this age range require approaches that honour their developmental stage, and the importance of play as the vehicle for inquiry.'
