Prescribed experiments

Each school has to run an experimental scheme of work to support and enhance the learning experience in the Diploma Program.

It is up to individual educators to design a suitable course, but there are several experiments that are prescribed and, as such, make up part of the examinable material on the exam papers, specifically paper 3.

These experiments are listed below along with the relevant topic.

Internal Assessment

The internal assessment is an extended experiment on a topic of the student's choice that should last 10 hours and is assessed against five criteria.

This work will be moderated externally and the students grades adjusted appropriately. The IA experiment is marked out of 20.
