Event description

Description

Start the IB right: Give yourself the best start on the IB; learn how to pick the right subjects for you; and build your essay writing, mathematics, and study skills.

Taught by IB professionals: Workshops and talks at the course are delivered by experienced IB graduates - their average score is 43 - IB teachers and IB Examiners.

Our Pre-IB Course is the perfect opportunity for you to prepare for the rigours and demands of the IB before beginning the programme in the Autumn. For many students, the skills and academic qualities the IB expects students to demonstrate can be unfamiliar, and our Pre-IB course allows you to transition into the first year of the IB with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed from the onset. These courses also present a wonderful opportunity to meet students from other schools embarking on the same challenge as you, and a chance to discuss your subject selection with them. You’ll realise you aren't alone.

Pre-IB course structure:

The Pre-IB Course is split between core workshops and subject-specific workshops. The course will run daily from 10:00-17:30 (with a lunch break during the day). The price includes two full days of tuition.

23 February 2019: Core workshops

Core workshops introduce students to the novel and challenging aspects of the IB which they won't have experienced before. Core workshops are the perfect opportunity for you to get to know the IB before your first day and to get to lay the foundation for success. The programme of core workshops includes:

  • Mathematics - Get started with the IB's tricky Maths syllabus and learn how to master your calculator.

  • TOK and Extended Essay - Get to grips with the compulsory TOK and EE tasks, which add up to your bonus IB points.

  • Subject Selection - Hear from IB graduates about how to pick the right subjects at the right level to ensure you enjoy the IB as much as you excel in it.

  • Think of the University - Although choosing the right University will only be on your mind in a couple of years time, our experience shows that certain IB subject combinations are preferred for particular University courses. On the day, you will be able to get course-specific advice from our University Admissions support that will set you up with the right IB subject selection for your future plans.

  • Insider Study Skills for the IB subjects - The everyday tricks and trips to maintain excellence every day with the view to final exams

24 February: Subject-specific workshops

With subject workshops, you can begin the IB with the confidence that you already have already mastered the basics of your subject and are prepared for the common pitfalls and challenges students encounter.

  • Practical subject overview - The workshops give you a flavour of the types of assignments and topics you will encounter when studying a particular subject. Group 1-5 of the subject groups will be covered and specifics of all subjects will be discussed so that you can make an informed choice right at the very start of your IB journey.
  • Choose the right level - Workshops help you trail your subject levels, helping you choose the right level on the IB.

  • Get ahead of the curve - Our IB tutors know their subjects better than anyone else (their average score is 43), and so they’re perfectly placed to introduce you to your subjects.
