The IB Diploma Programme

ib-iconThe International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a demanding pre-university course that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated secondary school students. The programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB Diploma holders access to the world’s leading universities.

IBDP is a comprehensive 2-year international curriculum, available in English, to be taken by students after the successful completion of Class 10. It generally allows students to fulfil the requirements of their national or state education systems.

The IBDP grading system is criterion-referenced, which means that each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. These are consistent from one examination session to the next and are applied equally to all schools. IBDP students are well prepared for university studies and are accepted by universities in more than 100 countries.

GIIS conducts a pre-IBDP orientation session for interested candidates prior to commencement of a new academic year, to familiarise students with the pedagogic approaches and tools as applicable to the curriculum.
