Important Points

Some important points about the implementation of The Diploma Programme

  • Students enrolled in the Diploma Programme are nevertheless obliged to complete the National Curriculum requirements.
  • All courses taught in non-IB classes in Grade 11 and Grade 12 are taught to the IB groups.
  • A student’s overall grade point average is independent of whether s/he is an IB student. All students, IB or not, are assessed for the purpose of national assessment according to the national assessment criteria.
  • There is a great deal which is common between the IB programme and the National Curriculum. The 6 subjects that a student is required to take in the IB Diploma Programme are compulsory courses in the National Curriculum.
  • Towards the end of the second year of the programme, students enter the IB examinations, which are set and assessed externally.
  • Most of our IB Diploma students aim to study at a Turkish university and prepare for the national university entrance examination
  • There is no extra tuition fee levied for the IB Diploma Programme at our school. Only the examination expenses are paid by the students.
  • IB at Acarkent Doğa College
  • Students receive an education that is very similar to our country’s curriculum and includes all Turkish curriculum programs. Along with the 6 basic courses, students must also complete Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay and CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) studies. In addition, students take the other courses in the MEB program at the required hours and they are entitled to receive the IB Diploma provided that they are successful in the exams and internal assessments at the end of 2 years.
