The extended essay (EE), which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper.
Creativity, action, service, (CAS), in which students complete a project related to these three concepts.
The six subject groups are: Chinese, English, Humanities & Social Science (Business and Management, Economics, History and Geography), Experimental Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Mathematics and Arts (Visual art and Music).
