A recent study carried out for the IB by the English National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) has compared the MYP with the two equivalent English school qualifications offered locally and abroad – GCSE and IGCSE.
This study looked at the attributes demonstrated by students eg how civic minded were they? How culturally sensitive? It also looked at the differences in the subject curriculum across all three programmes. Students, teachers and parents were interviewed about their experiences of the different programmes.
