IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Program)
J ain International Residential School is an authorized IB World School and is offering the Diploma Program since May 2011.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1968 as a non-profit educational foundation. A group of talented, forward-thinking teachers at the International School of Geneva, with assistance from several other international schools, created the IB Diploma Program.
The IB is motivated by a mission to create a better world through education. It promotes intercultural understanding and respect, not as an alternative to a sense of cultural and national identity, but as an essential part of life in the 21st century. All of this is captured in their mission statement:
“The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right”
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program (DP) is a rigorous two-year course of study designed to prepare young men and women for the challenges of university studies and life beyond. Through the diploma program (equivalent to Grade 11 and 12 of Indian Board), students will have the opportunity to experience a curriculum combining the breadth of some national systems with the depth of others. The balance of a demanding academic program and all-round development of the personality is the hallmark of the IBDP. Some specific distinguishing characteristics of the IB Diploma Program are that it requires students to:
The IB Diploma is considered one of the best-balanced and most challenging pre-university courses of study in the world. World-wide, distinguished universities hold the IB Diploma in high regard for admission to their undergraduate programs.
The curriculum model has been changed from a hexagon to a circle from 2012. Each subject of study is grouped among one of the six groups. Students must choose at least one subject from each Group. They have the option to not take a Group 6 subject and replace it with a second subject from either Group 3 or
Group 4.view more

In JIRS, students appear for the May Examination Session of the Diploma Program. Each subject that is studied in IB Diploma Program (IBDP) has an Internally Assessed (IA) component or coursework and an externally assessed component. All the assessments that are done in the IBDP are “criteria-referenced” and not “student-referenced”. That is, each student’s performance is assessed against a set of criteria. These criteria are made available to each DP Student during the orientation session conducted by the respective teachers at the commencement of the course.
Every university in the world and in India recognizes the IB program. This means they will grant university entrance based on the student’s performance in the IB exams. The curriculum committee is formed from IB teachers around the world.
