The Core Requirements
In addition to the six academic subjects that the students choose, the programme has three core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding. These include the following:

The Extended Essay (EE) is written piece of research work of maximum 4,000 words on any one topic chosen from any one of the six subjects opted. This core component offers the opportunity to investigate a research question of individual interest with a teacher in that discipline; it familiarizes students with independent research and writing skills that are expected of them at university. Examples of some of the research questions on which our students of have written extended essay in past includes: How does the use of theatrical elements in A Streetcar Named Desire and Death of a Salesman help to develop a better understanding of the plays? Investigating Effervescent Oscillating Reaction between Acidified Ammonium Sulphate and Sodium Nitrite, To what extent changing the limit on the subsidized LPG cylinders by the UPA government affects India’s current account deficit?

Theory of Knowledge (ToK) is often recognised as the flagship of the IB diploma programme, a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining the different ways of knowing (perception, emotion, language and reason) and different kinds of knowledge (natural sciences, the arts, human sciences, history, mathematics and ethics).
