The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an educational program that is rapidly becoming the worldwide standard with over 5,000 accredited schools around the globe. In recent years, Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) has been strongly encouraging the adoption of the IB program in Japan. In fact, as of December 31, 2021, there are 175 IB accredited schools in Japan alone. This educational program, which aims to cultivate students who will become leaders in a global world, provides students with a world-class university entrance qualification (IB Diploma) and a wide range of options for students.
EGSIS IB Course Key Points of Instruction
・Balancing regular grades and IB
The IB program is well known for both its breadth and depth of learning content that prepares students to perform in top universities. While this can be academically rewarding to those who complete the program, it can also be challenging for many to balance the program’s course load with their regular school work. In fact, it is a common sight to see students’ performance in regular classes suffer (reflected in a lower GPA) as they attempt to prioritize their IB classes. At EGCIS, we flip the script by supporting students to excel not just in their IB programs, but the rest of their school work as well.
Academic Support: Our expert tutors, who have all successfully completed the IB program themselves will provide students with the in-depth knowledge necessary to perform in each subject. In order to score as high as possible EGCIS will provide writing guidance for their Extended Essays and “Theory of Knowledge” courses which require long-term focus.
From the very beginning of the program to the completion of university entrance examinations, our tutors will create a specifically catered study plan involving course selections and game plans for Internal and External Assessment exams that are key to the IB Diploma. This will allow students to succeed in their IB work without having to overlook their regular classwork as well—you can have your cake and eat it too!
