| Term is approaching its mid-way point which means that deadlines are coming closer and closer.
For example, last month we gave you (in advance of most schools!) the May 2022 TOK questions, but now true fear is coming – draft deadlines. Most schools need your drafts in somewhere in October, with the finals being before or just after Christmas break.
It’s a daunting task that just gets scarier the longer you put it off (and the questions this year aren’t very easy either!)
And on the topic of scary deadlines – class tests for UPG
It’s not quite mock season, but important UPG tests will be coming up for final years! Your UPG is what goes to Universities so they’re SUPER important – more on applications in a second.
Mocks are normally held after Christmas, but by then many of you would have made applications. It’s time now to boost your grades which will include both studying harder, and also holding discussions with your teachers on how you can improve your grades.
For the non-IB initiated: IGCSE Essays
With a growing cohort of IGCSE students, we want to make sure you guys are prepared as well! While you won’t have to worry about UPGs, your coursework now will impact your final grades and therefore what you can choose to study at IB!
For English, October to November is around the time the Empathic Task is due for first year IGCSE students, and the Poetry Analysis Essay is due for final year IGCSE students. Scary!
