Take this course to pull together all of your learning from your first year of IB. Gain the confidence to meet your target grades. We will teach you the techniques to improve your knowledge of your subjects and to allow you to show the examiners exactly what they want. We will diagnose your gaps and help you complete your understanding. You will learn alongside other young international people with the same aims and have fun together in our relaxation programme in the unique city of Budapest.
Our mid-IB courses are focused on developing your skills and knowledge in your chosen subjects.
Your chosen route has 3 development areas:
Via a placement questionnaire we diagnose your top requirements and approach each subject to enhance and refine your knowledge and understanding of the core elements of the IB course. You also work to develop those special IB study skills that lie at the heart of IB success. Finally you practise those all-important exam techniques for thximising your scores in individual papers.
We recommend that you choose 2 subjects as your focus for the course:
Maths with Physics
Biology with Chemistry
History with English
Business with Economics
We can offer some flexibility with these subject pairings.

By using experienced IB teachers and recent IB students, our participants enjoy the “Best of Both Worlds”. IB teachers are familiar with the current changes in the IB syllabus and the current expectations of IB examiners. Only IB teachers know where students tend to get stuck on subject areas and they know what techniques help unlock understanding. Former IB students are best suited talking through the emotional stress and personal challenges of taking the IB. They will share experience and naturally students will more easily empathise and build trust with similar students of their own generation. By spending time with successful IB students, participants will borrow the confidence of their success.
Mid IB courses are:
9 – 14 July, 2017
16 – 20 July, 2017
|Day 2||Day 3||Day 4||Day 5|
Inevitably you will have areas where you feel the need for extra support and personal guidance. Let us know before the course if there is some area where you need extra help and we can advise whether it will be included in the course or whether it is better to book some extra time with one of our teachers.
