IB Diploma programme admission policy

IST is an International Baccalaureate Continuum school, offering the IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes. As a continuum school IST pays great attention to the needs of all three programmes while strongly encouraging the development of its students through the full IB curriculum.

 At the Diploma Programme level (grades 11 and 12), the school offers a  program that promotes and develops a student’s knowledge as well as critical thinking skills in 6 subject groups as well as the Core, CAS, TOK, and Extended Essay.

The admission policy to the Diploma Programme addresses both internal and external candidates. Internal candidates are those students who are already members of the IST Middle Years Programme while external candidates are students who are applying to enter IST at the beginning of the 11th grade.

 Internal Admission for IB Diploma programme 

– Internal students will not have to go through the regular admission procedure to seek admission in the IB Diploma Program at IST. Successful completion of year 5 of the IST Middle Years Programme gains the student admission into the Diploma Programme.

-In case of candidates who have done their MYP he/she must possess a certificate of completion of MYP (issued from their respective school).

-The student must take entrance tests on Science, Math & English to join Grade 11. At least satisfactory grades (50% of points) are required to pass the tests.

-IST receives the current transcripts and related records from the last two years of the student’s educational history.
