This announcement ensures that IB schools can co-teach Pakistan Studies within Integrated Humanities, streamlining the MYP experience. Pakistan Studies is a mandatory requirement for admission to universities in Pakistan and students taking MYP Integrated Humanities will now meet this requirement.

MYP students in Pakistan will benefit from a reduction in their overall curriculum and assessment. Additionally, it will support the workload of teachers delivering the MYP, creating a more efficient and manageable teaching environment.

“This announcement is uplifting for the IB community in Pakistan. It allows us to remove some of the burden on both students and teachers, easing some of the stress, and improving well-being in our schools. It also shows how strong relationships between the IB and government bodies can lead to positive outcomes,” said Uzma Shujjat, the IB’s Regional Manager of Pakistan, Iran and the Nordic Region.
