    The DP is a rigorous pre-university course of study that leads to IB examinations. At the end of the two years of the DP, each student takes assessments, both graded internally by teachers and externally by an international board of examiners who are monitored by the IB Organization. JQUS was authorized in 2010.   
    **We only offer May exams. We do not offer November exams.**
