IB Middle Years Programme (IBMYP)

The IB Middle Years Programme does not have a standardized syllabus and each school can determine the selection of materials and subjects taught. Currently, there is no public exam with IBMYP, though that is due to change in 2015. The IBMYP serves as a preparatory period for students who will later become IB Diploma Programme students in the last two years of secondary school. Interactivity, creative thinking and skill building are the main goals of the IBMYP years.

  • Internationally based but must be taken under an IB approved school
  • Generally for Grade 7-10 or Year 8-11
  • No current externally assessed exams
  • Curriculum is determined by individual schools, not the IB Organization
  • Preparatory years for IBDP
