Adrian Kearney, regional director, Europe, Middle East and Africa, International Baccalaureate, says: “Ofqual’s findings demonstrate that the IB diploma programme provides students with a breadth of experience and knowledge in languages, mathematics, the experimental sciences, humanities and social sciences, which prepares them well for university and the world of work.
