The IB Diploma Progamme (DP) is a rigorous pre-university course of studies for highly motivated secondary school students that leads to examinations. It is a comprehensive two-year curriculum that generally allows students to fulfill requirements of various national education systems. IB diploma holders gain admission to universities and colleges throughout the world.

The diploma model incorporates the best elements of several national systems. Each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. Top grades reflect attainment of knowledge and skills relative to set standards which are applied equally to all schools. Responsibility for all academic judgments about the quality of candidates’ work rests with 3,400 examiners worldwide.
