IB Diploma Programme

The IB and TNS share a common ambition: to develop distinctive, high quality programmes of education to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students and to nurture inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people. The curriculum is demonstrated by a hexagon with six academic areas surrounding the three core requirements.

Over the course of the two-year programme, students will:

  • Study six subjects chosen from the six subject groups
  • Complete an Extended Essay
  • Participate in a Theory of Knowledge course (TOK)
  • Participate in Creativity, Action, Service (CAS)

As a general rule:

  • Three of the six subjects are studied at the higher level (courses representing 240 teaching hours).
  • The remaining three subjects are studied at the standard level (courses representing 150 teaching hours).

The IB Diploma culminates in the highly-regarded IB Diploma, which is increasingly the preferred entrance qualification for universities around the world.

Subject Combinations Option 1 Option 2 Option 3
Group 1 English Literature English Language & Literature Urdu Literature (SL only)
Group 2 French Ab intio (SL only) French
Group 3 & 4 Biology History Business
Physics ESS (SL only) ITGS
Chemistry Economics Geography
Group 5 Math Analysis and approaches Math Application & Interpretation
Group 6 Visual Arts

In rare cases, the school may decide to offer a student a choice of subjects that is different from the choice of subjects specified in the regulations for the DP. This can only arise when a prescribed condition of entry into an institution of higher education makes it necessary for a student to modify the Programme (e.g. students who would like to opt for all three science subjects from Group 4 in order to apply to local medical colleges and universities in Pakistan).

To request such a modification, the school must provide the IB with clear evidence, such as in the form of actual pages from the prospectus of the institution concerned, to prove that the specific subject substitution is necessary. The school will consider the possibility of a student pursuing a different subject combination before submitting a request for a non‑regular diploma.
