So I am a 2016 November candidate who is currently doing her exams. This year I was plagued with a series of health issues so my results won't be that great and I will certainly have to retake next year (May 2017). The problem is, my preferred course's requirement went from a 42 to 44. So these are the results that I have now
Biology HL 6
Chemistry HL 3
Maths SL 3
I will have to improve to:
Biology HL 7
Chemistry HL 7
Maths SL 7
I have sevens for my other two subjects and a 6 for English - I will not be retaking those.
Now.... the issue is, because I am retaking, I will have to study by myself and I will not have the support of school. I only have 5 months to make such drastic improvements to my marks AND I HAVE NO IDEA HOW. I really want to get into this course and I am willing to study my head off, seriously. But this obviously is a huge jump.
The knowledge I have in maths and chemistry, as my marks would tell you, is very poor. I need help from people who have made huge improvements in these subjects - what did you do to improve? As for biology, I really do not how to nail that 7 - the syllabus change makes it harder (any tips from May 2016 candidates?)
Because I am studying alone, I would also appreciate help with regards to time management and what dangerous things I should look out for.
