IB-PRE-DP & DP 15-18 YR
GRADE 10 PRE-DP:
Students entering our Pre-DP grade 10 spend the year getting academically ready for the IB Diploma course. They work hard on their languages, English and Chinese, and on their Science and Mathematics skills by completing assessments which use IBDP criteria and grading. In this way, they will be ready for challenge of the Diploma. They choose Art, Drama or music, as well as two Sciences and Economics or Business Studies. PE and Attitudes to Learning help their fitness and their general communication and academic skills. Grade 10 are also expected to complete an independent service project.
This year is a vital one for students coming in from other educational systems and other countries. It gives them time to understand the rigour of the IBDP and to decide if they are ready for it.
