ISJ April 2016: The International Baccalaureate – guidance counseling, predictions and the Middle Years Programme


Mark Grant


The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) has been running for 35 years and the number of schools offering the MYP continues to grow each year. Whatever its educational or philosophical position within the IB programme as a whole, a matter that is sometimes debated, the MYP does offer guidance counselors a set of data on the academic progress of students. Yet how this data might be used towards predictions for applications to higher education is apparently not a topic that is much discussed.
