What is the IB?

The International Baccalaureate, or more commonly known as the IB, is a secondary school credential founded in 1968 in Geneva, Switzerland. It was designed to provide a universal, standardised and more importantly, transferable diploma for students who would move abroad. It is now taught in over 3000 schools in 140 countries worldwide and is recognised globally by universities. In Australia, the program is offered by both public and private institutions. Some will offer a choice between IB or HSC while others designate themselves to only the IB diploma.

The IB advertises itself as creating global-minded and well-rounded students after the completion of the two-year diploma. It forces students to think creatively and work in a variety of subject areas to ensure they have the best preparation going into whatever career path they may choose.


The IB diploma consists of six core subject areas that every student is required to choose from. There is a wide variety of course options, however, your school may not offer all of them. These subject areas are:

  1. Group 1: Studies in Language and Literature (English)
  2. Group 2: Language Acquisition (Foreign Languages)
  3. Group 3: Individuals and Societies (Humanities)
  4. Group 4: Sciences
  5. Group 5: Mathematics
  6. Group 6: The Arts

All of these subjects are required, with the exception of The Arts which can be swapped out for an additional Science, Humanities, or Languages course.

IB or ATAR? Which is the best option for me?

The choice between IB and ATAR depends on a variety of factors both external and internal to the student.

Speaking from personal experience, the IB Diploma has a lot to offer. It helps you advance in independent management, creative thinking and personal development mainly through the way it is structured. If you are still unsure about whether IB is the right choice for you, consider signing up for a free 30-minute study skills consultation with one of our many expert IB tutors.

Many students in Australia choose IB because of the generous grading when converting into ATAR or simply because they are looking for a different challenge. It generally suits students who are well-rounded and can adapt to different challenges presented by the different subject groups. If you want a full detailed analysis of how IB differs from ATAR make sure to check out our blog post on that!

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me a wace french tutor who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

Tina Wang




Hello! my name is Tina. I'm currently in my 2nd year of Doctor of Medicine at the University of Melbourne. Having completed year 12 in 2019, I understand just how frustrating it is to have assignments after assignments, tests after tests - it just seems like it's never going to end! Don't worry. I believe I can provide you with the best guidance not only on the subject contents, but also on internal assessments and exam skills.

I have found that during my study, a lot of times teachers are only explaining how to do a question, rather than analysing why I have done a question wrong (or right). Therefore I endeavour to help my students develop study skills, rather than rote learning. I hope to see you grow confidence in your own way of thinking.

And life is not just about study, study, STUDY! Apart from juggling my academic studies, I also started a new instrument (drumkit just looks too cool), played a sport every term (even in the lowest team), applied to overseas universities (interviewed at Oxford) ... all in the final years of high school. You could do the same! With effective study skills, you will find that good grades does not equal to long hours.

I am an easy-going person with lots of patience, and I enjoy tutoring students in any year level. Apart from English, I am also fluent in Mandarin and Japanese. If you are more comfortable speaking these languages or wanting to learn the language, I'm here to help too!

Sarah Chen




Hi there, Sarah here! I'm a high school overall dux who recieved a 99.75 ATAR and am currently a Bachelor of Biomedicine student at the University of Melbourne. Being a top-scoring student while also balancing extra-curriculars, I am not only knowledgeable, but have plenty of tricks to make studying time efficient, simple and catered for you.
I love the sciences! In particular, Chemistry, English and Biology were some of my high school favourites. But I understand the general consensus is that science and math are quite challenging, content heavy and a massive pain. Not to worry though! With a little patience, time, effort and customized lessons, I can guarantee you'll breeze through and excel in these subjects as much as I did (or maybe even come to love them a little more).
Outside of studies, I'm a pretty seasoned musician, having played violin and piano for more than a decade. In my spare time, I love keeping a balanced lifestyle so often you'll find me either holed up in my room reading classic literature or having a blast swimming. Hopefully you've learnt a little bit more about me and I sound like the perfect fit for you! If so, do get in contact, I'll see you then!

Gyan Ainkaran




Hi my name is Gyan, and I'm a final year medical student (having previously studied a Bachelor of Science and Laws at The University of Sydney). The hope is to eventually become a 'high-risk' obstetrician - that is essentially a doctor who deals with risky pregnancies.

I have significant experience tutoring at both a school and university level, culminating in my appointment as one of the lead tutors within the Faculty of Medicine and Health at The University of Sydney.

When I'm not studying or working, I can usually be found running, playing golf, and catching up with friends!

What are the benefits of taking IB?

The IB Diploma Programme is recognised worldwide, meaning it increases adaptability and mobility for IB students. Furthermore, the IB programme encourages students to participate in active, creative and service-oriented activities outside the classroom through their CAS requirement. Lastly, many students in year 10 are uncertain about their vocational or future career options causing them to not enrol in certain subject areas and limiting their tertiary choices. The IB Diploma requirement is that students take subjects from each area of the curriculum. IB students end high school more well-rounded and with their university degree choices boundless.

Do students need to have exemplary grades to enrol in the IB for years 11 and 12?

No. According to the IB Mission Statement, it aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Hence, there is no exam or formal requirement for students to undergo the IB.
