When choosing subjects students should have in mind: their vision of future university education (where, in which countries, in which universities) and subject specification; their interests and strong sides; recommendations from teachers. Students declare their choice of subjects in the application form when accepting an offer to join the IB Diploma Programme at “Prof. Vassil Zlatarski” Private School.
Choice between Higher and Standard level
IB Subjects Offered
To decide which three subjects they will do at Higher level and which three at Standard level, students should take into account their strong sides and their personal interests. Their plans for future university education should be noted, because in some cases universities require specific IB subjects and specific grades to be achieved. The final choice of subject levels is made towards the end of the first term of the 11th grade. This allows students and their parents some time to form a final decision after collecting information about university requirements and detailed study of the difference between HL and SL. The final choice should also take into account the references of the teachers in the different subjects.
