14th graders in the final run-up to exams – article written by Victoria (student in 13th IB)

Students in 14th grade are taking their final exams soon. I have interviewed two of them: Josh 14th IB and Naomi 14th Swiss Maturité to ask them how they feel about the exams being just around the corner.

  • Examens

The Swiss Maturité exams start on the 22nd of August. Naomi feels nervous yet motivated to do her best. She has her own technique when it comes to studying:  “as we have all summer to prepare, I start by making sure I understand and have clear notes for everything, then it's just going through them, doing past papers, and discussing with friends. Working with friends really helps as you can explain things to each other, and even if you're not doing the same subjects it helps you to stay focused if you're surrounded by other people studying. It makes breaks more fun too.” Naomi aims at going to university in the UK next year.

The IB exams start sooner, on the 2nd of May. Josh isn’t nervous but anxious and quite excited to know that he will be done with school after his exams.  Josh’s study techniques are different from Naomi’s: “I mostly go through past papers, watch documentaries about my subjects and so on. I watch a lot of videos as I'm a visual learner. That works best for me.” Josh has a conditional offer from his first choice university, meaning he needs to reach a minimum score to be accepted.

The exams of the French Baccalaureate start on the 15th of June and finish on the 25th. The students also have individual orals and a sport exam on the 10th of June.

I wish all 14th grade students best of luck with their exams!

Victoria, 13th IB
