3) Orientations in space and time
4) Scientific and technical innovation
5) Fairness and development
6) Globalization and sustainability. 

The eight academic subjects required in Grades 6-8 of the IBMYP are:

2) Language Acquisition (additional World Language)
3) Mathematics
4) Sciences
5) Individuals and societies  (Social Studies)
6) Arts
7) Design (Technology)
