I. Initial questions...quick answers

Three general questions for parents and students

  • Is the IB Diploma Programme worthwhile? yes

  • Is the IB diploma necessary? well, it depends...

  • What do we do now? research, plan, decide, relax a little

Two specific questions for students

  • Do I want to be a diploma candidate or a certificate candidate? You can start as a diploma candidate and change to a certificate candidate later, but not the other way.

  • Which courses should I select? The DP coordinator, DP teachers, and your parents will advise you.
