Each student, in collaboration with the school and parents, will select six IB subjects to study in the IB DP. In addition to these subjects, they must also complete the CORE and several other non-IB subjects on a compulsory basis. He/she chooses three of the IB subjects at standard level (SL) and three at higher level (HL) according to the criteria given by the IB rules. He/she must choose one subject from each group except group 6. In addition to these five subjects, he/she then chooses either a subject from Group 6 or one more subject from Groups 3 or 4.
