The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is one of four International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes offered. It is designed as a five-year programme for students aged 11-16. It is an equivalent of O level GCE or IGCE.
The MYP Curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.
The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group, in each year of the programme. In the final two years of the programme, carefully-defined subject group flexibility allows students to meet local requirements and personal learning goals.
It offers a wider range of subjects and a blend of sciences and humanities, which makes for a more rounded education and better options at university level instead of opting for specialized subjects at O level.
