IB International Baccalaureate
Our students can complete both the Czech school leaving certificate (CZ) and the International Baccalaureate (IB), either in full, or as a combination of their parts based on the student’s own choice. A unique advantage of studying the IB DP at our Grammar School is the fact that the International Baccalaureate examination takes place in the next-to-last year of study (third year of a 4-year grammar school, fifth year of a 6-year grammar school or the seventh year of an 8-year grammar school). The Czech school leaving examination is then held in the last year of study (fourth year of a 4-year grammar school, sixth year of the 6-year grammar school or eight year of the 8-year grammar school). The study obligations are therefore spread out and there is no risk of collision between the dates of both examinations. Additionally, depending on how the student succeeded (and in which parts) in the International Baccalaureate, he / she can adapt the composition of the Czech school leaving examination in order to meet the conditions of both foreign and Czech universities. More information about the specific means of combining the Czech school leaving examination and the IB can be found here.
The minimum condition for passing the International Baccalaureate is the achievement of 24 points out of a total of 45.
