Senior High School IB Diploma

Senior School

IB-Diploma Program (IBDP) at the Sekolah Victory Plus

In Year 11 and onward, the IBDP is offered at SVP  either as a full Diploma or Partial Program (IBDP Course). Students choose the program that suits their career plans, as well as university choices. The full Diploma Program is best suited for students who plan to continue their studies at overseas universities where IBDP is widely recognized. This program is also accepted as an entry requirement for the international program at many well-known Indonesian Universities, both private and public. The latter program (partial program) is aimed at preparig students to sit the Indonesian public universities’ entrance test, as well as the Indonesian national examination (UN) in Grade 12, whilst still maintaining the IB approaches to their studies. Please note that all Indonesian students, regardless of the programe taken, are required to sit the UN. However, the UN result is not the determining factor for their successful graduation from High School.

Full Diploma Program

Students who take the full Diploma Program are required to take all 3 core program components  (Theory of Knowledge (ToK), Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) and Extended Essay (EE)), one subject from each subject group and Indonesian mandatory subjects, namely the Pendidikan Pancasila dan Kewarganegaraan (Civics) and Religion.

The table below outlines the 6 subject groups and the number of related classroom lessons (contact time) according to the related level.

Each subject is graded on a scale of 1 (minimum) to 7 (maximum). The award of the IB Diploma requires a minimum total score of 24, based on the principle that a grade 4 represents a passing level in each of the six subjects. Excellent performance in the six subjects results in a grade 7 for each, or a total score of 42 points. Students can earn an additional 3 points for superior work on the Extended Essay and Theory Of Knowledge.

Description of Diploma Core Program

Theory of Knowledge (TOK)

This course is focused on developing interdisciplinary and critical-thinking skills. TOK explores the interdisciplinary nature among subject disciplines and encourages critical reflection and analysis.

Extended Essay

Students must select, research, and write an in-depth, independent research work of 4000 words in one of their six subjects areas. The Extended Essay requirement offers IB Diploma candidates the opportunity to become familiar with the independent research process and writing skills expected at university.

Creativity, Action, Service (CAS)

All IB Diploma students must be involved in Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) work. CAS is a fundamental part of the Diploma experience (and one that sets it apart) helping students to grasp the importance of extracurricular activities as an integral part of life, and as a healthy counterbalance to the world of pure scholarship and study. These initiatives and activities are a key part of our students’ education. Students focus on local, national and international issues.

“The IB offers preparation for learning
and communicating in an increasingly
interconnected and globalized market.”
Brian Keegan
2002 IB Diploma Programme graduate

Partial Diploma Program (IBDP Course)

IBDP course students are only required to take 1 (one) core program, namely Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS). Since they intended to prepare for the Indonesian public university entrance test, their subject group choices reflect this aim.

The table below outlines the 6 subject groups and the number of related classroom lessons (contact time).

No Subject Period
Group 1 Language and Literature (Mother Tongue)
Bahasa Indonesia 6
Group 2 Language Acquisition (2nd Language)

IBDP course students must select subjects from either Group 3 or Group 4. All subjets in this group must be taken, while only 1 (one) subject is chosen from Group 6. Subjects in Group 1 (Language and Literature – Mother Tongue) and Group 2 (Language Acquisition – 2nd Language) follow the IBDP syllabus. This allows students to achieve the IB Certificate. All other subject groups follow the latest Indonesian curriculum.

Assessment in Diploma Program

There are two types of assessment administered in the programme:

External assessment

Examinations form the basis of the assessment for most courses. This is because of their high levels of objectivity and reliability. They include:

  1. essays
  2. structured problems
  3. short-response questions
  4. data-response questions
  5. text-response questions
  6. case-study questions
  7. multiple-choice questions (rarely used)

Internal assessment

Teacher assessment is also used for most courses. This includes:

  1. oral work in languages
  2. fieldwork in geography
  3. laboratory work in the sciences
  4. investigations in mathematics
  5. artistic performances.

Approaches To Learning (ATL) across the MYP and DP

The ATL is a set of skills  within each of the IB programmes. Students develop skills that have relevance across the curriculum, and which help them “learn how to learn”. ATL skills can be learned and taught, improved with practice and developed incrementally. They provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills help students prepare for, and demonstrate learning through, meaningful assessment. They provide a common language that students and teachers can use to reflect on and articulate the process of learning. ATL skills are most powerful when teachers plan and students engage with them in connection with significant and relevant content knowledge in order to develop transferable understanding.

These ATL skills fall under the following 5 broad categories:

  • Communication
  • Social
  • Self Management
  • Research
  • Thinking
