IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME SUBJECT CHOICE OVERVIEW Students in the IB Diploma Programme need to choose six subjects: three at Higher Level (HL) and three at Standard Level (SL). HL subjects are chosen based on the student’s academic strengths and interest in those subjects, requirements of institutions of tertiary learning and the advice of the Careers Counsellor and subject teachers. SL subjects cover topics in less depth than HL subjects and are intended to give the IBDP student a well-rounded education. HL subjects are usually timetabled for five teaching periods per week. SL subjects can be timetabled together with HL subjects, but require a minimum of three teaching periods per week. Students are required to choose one subject from each of the six subject groups. It is formally possible to take two Languages A instead of (or in addition to) a B Language And Literature and Language Acquisition (subject to timetabling constraints). In addition to their six subjects, all IB Diploma Programme students will follow lessons in Theory of Knowledge. Furthermore, they must write an Extended Essay and fulfil the requirements of the Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) programme.
