How should I prepare myself for IB this summer?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I just finished my GCSEs two weeks ago and on friday we had IB induction. By the end of the day, I was freaking out about IB as it is entirely different from GCSEs. I was just wondering if you guys had any tips on how I can prepare myself during the summer holidays. I've already asked to borrow some of the books I'll be studying next year but I was still hoping there is more I can do. I really want to be prepared and ready when year 12 starts.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated :)

Cheers,

Rachel

try to google more about IB for your own understanding and also acknowledge the existence of syllabus. studied the syllabus in order to know what's you're up against

Hello,

my advice:

read your A1 books. the list can be taken from the english teacher at the school you are going to.

do a background check on the subjects you are willing to take in IB.

it's a good start for you.

Good luck

Here is my advise:

Besides reading your A1 books, your science textbooks and the syllabus, start searching for things in IBSurvival, trust me, it's great. Taking into account your subject elections you might find something that is very useful in a specific thread. I don't really know who created IBSurvival but he's a genious! I'll recommend to start thinking about your EE even though it is pretty early, it always works. Search more things about the IB in the internet, learn the general rules and the syllabus for every subject.

I'm going to be starting IB next year as well :P

What I plan on doing is reading my english books. I also plan on purchasing the course campanions for all 6 subjects as well as TOK and skimming through them to get an idea of the content and what not.

You should get the syllabus of the Science subjects, and revise the ones that seem interesting, etc...

Another option would be reading the Language A1 books.. :)
