Age/Year Level Equivalents

With its international focus and trans-disciplinary approach, the IB programme allows an easy transition to and from national curricula. Students joining NIST from other schools are placed in year levels based on their ages and current year/grade levels.

These dates are applicable for the 2016-2017 school year.
