The International Baccalaureate offers high quality programmes of international education to a worldwide community of schools. There are over 700,000 students at more than 2,500 schools in over 130 countries.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a rigorous pre-university course of studies, leading to examinations that meet the needs of highly motivated secondary school students between the ages of 16 and 19 years. Designed as a comprehensive two-year curriculum that allows its graduates to fulfill requirements of various national education systems, the diploma model is based on the pattern of no single country but incorporates the best elements of several.

When the International Baccalaureate made its foray into India, there was a definite lack of awareness and understanding about the board. However, over the years, the number of schools offering the programme and the student population has burgeoned, making the IB programme the talk of the town.

Illustrating the boards growing popularity, Dr Vandana Lulla, Director, Podar International School, reveals, We initially started off with 268 students, and today, our student population stands at 1200. Education counsellor Viral Doshi concurs with the growing popularity of the IB phenomenon, saying, Weve seen the biggest rise in the number of students choosing to pursue the IB after class 10. The numbers run into the hundreds
