Important information for students of the Class of 2021 and beyond who are considering studying medicine in India.
Woodstock School recognizes that preparation for medical study by Indian students requires the study of Chemistry, Biology, and Physics in Grades 11-12 and the NEET exam. This presents a significant burden above and beyond International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) requirements. Encouraging students to complete the full IBDP while also meeting Indian medical pathway requirements would not be in keeping with the IBDP philosophy or our Guiding Principles of wholeness and well-being. Indian students preparing for medical study within India are therefore ineligible to earn the full IB Diploma while at Woodstock. Instead, we offer the following pathway to enable Indian students enrolled at Woodstock to pursue medicine:
- Broad participation leading to the full MYP Diploma in Grades 9-10
- Study of selected IB subjects in Grades 11-12 as an IB certificate student
- The MSA-accredited US diploma granted by Woodstock School, recognised for equivalency to 10+2 boards by the Association of Indian Universities.
