At the Malay College Kuala Kangsar, one of our key aims is to ensure that students achieve their full potential. Studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) plays a huge part in helping us to achieve this aim.
For many universities, the IB Diploma is most highly rated by admission officers as preparation for undergraduate study compared to other qualifications based on the breadth of the curriculum; development of critical thinking, time-management and communication skills; and motivation of the students. Overall, they favored the broad curriculum that is offered by the Diploma Programme.
The IB requires students to become independent learners who seek out and listen to good advice. We very much hope that you will read this guide with your parents and seek their advice. The Diploma Programme is a highly prestigious and recognized qualification that has a number of academic pathways, hence it is important to contemplate the long-term future to ensure that the ‘package’ of subjects undertaken at IB matches the requirements of a future university course.
