Probably the best pre-university education in the world. The IB Diploma is recognized by univerisites worldwide, including Sweden. 250 points or more from grundskolan will be a solid foundation for the IB. You choose subjects from six subject groups. Small teaching groups, 10-20 students. The IB is a great programme for developing critical thinking skills. Grades are not set by the teachers, they are set externally by IB examiners. A good alternative to Natur- and Samhällsprogrammet.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) prepares students for success at university and the real world. The programme demands the best from both motivated students and teachers and is recognised and respected by the world's leading universities.
Over 760,000 students are enrolled in one of the three IB programmes at schools in 138 countries. Over the past ten years, the number of students has grown between 10% and 20% each year, resulting in remarkable levels of sustained growth.
All diploma students around the world follow the same curriculum. Final exams and external assessments ensure global standards. Typically, diploma holders are ready to debate real-world issues from an international perspective. They are able to ask challenging questions, but also know how to research a topic and express their opinion.
- Students choose six subjects
- Students achieve a high proficiency in English
- Students learn how to think, write and speak at an advanced level
- Students are well prepared for university in Sweden or abroad
- Students learn time managment and study technique
- Students are normally taught in small class size
- Teachers are more like tutors and do not set either the final exams or the grades This is one of the resons why the school atmosphere is supportive and friendly.
- You will not have as much time for a part-time job, leisure activities or parties, as students in Sp or Nv programmes.
- Homework often takes more than 10 hours a week on top of scheduled time if you want to do it properly. So you need to be a good organiser. But maybe you can use travel time and free periods for school work?
