The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) curriculum sets out the
requirements for the study of high school international diploma. In preparation for the Diploma
Program, NIS offers a one year Pre-IB (year 10) to set the students on the IB track. The curriculum
is made up of the DP three core required components; Thoery of Knowledge (TOK), the extended
Essay (EE) and Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS). Students choose from their six groups: group
1: Studies in Language & Literature, group 2: Language Acquisition, group 3: Individuals &
Societies, group 4: Sciences, group 5: Mathematics and group 6: the Arts.
Students have the choice to study an additional science, individual & societies, or language
course, instead of a course in the arts, which is the only optional subject group.
At least three and not more than four subjects are taken at higher level (240 teaching hours), while
the other subjects are taken at standard level (150 teaching hours). In Nefertari, we align with all
the IB requirements and follow the IB philosophy in our learning and teaching, which is indicated in
the school’s mission and vision.
