The framework is flexible enough to allow a school to include other subjects not determined by the IB but which may be required by local authorities. Schools may deliver the programme in any language under certain conditions, although IB services are provided in a limited number of languages. Taken as a whole, the curriculum provides a balanced education that will equip young people for effective participation in the modern world.
