The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a two-year course available in almost 150 countries worldwide. King's welcomes applications for all courses that we offer from students studying for the IB.
Our typical IB offer requires an overall score of at least 42-43 (including the Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay components) and 7, 7, 6 in the relevant Higher Level subjects, or 7,7,7 in Maths and Science Subjects, Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, and Economics. In addition to the IB, candidates for Maths will also be required to take STEP papers.
IB applicants starting the new IB Mathematics syllabus are expected to take IB Higher Level 'Analysis and Approaches' for any course where Mathematics is a requirement.
You will also need to be taking suitable subjects for your chosen course. See the relevant subject page for more information.
