IB Diploma News

16 november 2017

Students are now working towards their mock exams with more time during the form period dedicated to students preparing their revision for this week.

As you can see from the deadline calendar below, the deadlines for coursework have stopped (apart from one) for next week so students can prepare well. Although it is not possible to replicate the exact conditions of exam week, students should reflect on their preparation and use feedback from teachers to help improve their preparation for the real thing.

One important thing for Year 13 students to consider is their five minutes of reading time. For each exam, excluding the science multiple choice exams, students have five minutes at the beginning of the exam to read through questions. They should consult their teachers on how they can best use this time. For example, in a maths paper, students should be thinking about the step by step methods they should use for each of the easier section A questions and the first couple of section B questions. This will help them to pick up the easy marks while finishing questions efficiently to give enough time to complete the more difficult problem solving questions. Students should have a tactic like this for all exams.

 

Year 12 News

Students completed a form time task of researching potential topics for their Extended Essay. This is still at the beginning stage for students where they are exploring the possibilities before we give them more explicit details and get them to choose a subject (this will come after Christmas). Below is a website that the school subscribes to which has research papers students can use to inspire for their work.

The below link is part of the Extended Essay website that deals with choice of topic. Again students have been exploring this resource to help them understand more about the Extended Essay.
