Jakarta BDP 12-13


For students in Year 12 and 13, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (BDP) is a two year programme of study which follows on directly from IGCSE courses, it provides greater breadth and depth of study than national systems allow and is an internationally recognised qualification for university entrance.

Students study six selected subjects, one from each group with 3 at Higher Level (HL) and 3 at Standard Level (SL). Students can select an additional Science (Group 4) subject in Group 6 instead of Visual Arts should they wish to do so.

The Higher Level programmes are taught over 240 teaching hours and the Standard Level are taught over 150 hours. Students choose one subject from each of the 6 IB subject groups, where 3 subjects are to be at Standard Level (SL) and 3 subjects are to be at Higher Level (HL). Students can achieve a maximum of 7 points per subject, giving a potential total of 42 points.

There are three other features to IB that make it unique and highly respected: Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (ToK) and the Extended Essay. The Extended Essay contributes to the overall Diploma score through the award of points in conjunction with Theory of Knowledge. A maximum of 3 points are awarded according to a candidate’s combined performance in both the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge. Thus the maximum possible achievement is 45 points.

Students who do not choose the full IBDP may study selected subjects at either Standard or Higher Levels, for which individual subject certificates are awarded by the International Baccalaureate Organisation. There is also the option of re-sitting some IGCSE subjects with a view of improving grades and potentially commencing the full IBDP the following academic year. The ACG School Jakarta High School Diploma gives credits for subjects undertaken across Year 10 to 13.

Full details on the IB Diploma Programme at ACG School Jakarta, together with information on the ACG School Jakarta High School Diploma are available in the IBDP guidebook for Years 12 and 13 - IB Diploma Programme for examination May 2019.
