8 subject groups are offered:

As the student progresses to MYP4 and 5, there is a flexibility of choosing up to 6 subjects as per preference. An additional aspect of the curriculum is the interdisciplinary unit which is a yearly subject that students are assessed on based on their conceptual understanding between two subjects.

MYP assessment requires teachers to create formative and summative assessments to grade the students. Formative assessments essentially lead up to a final summative assessment.

There are 4 criteria which are the basis upon which students are assessed, it varies as per the subject group. Students must achieve a minimum of 28 and higher than a level 3 for each subject group in order to achieve the MYP certificate.
