How can you support your sons and daughters? IB Diploma is an extremely demanding programme and intensifies in the final school year. Students who do not meet deadlines and fully prepare for examinations will struggle and risk the chance of not receiving their Diploma. You can help by:
Parental Support Encouraging your son/daughter to attend school on time and attend all lessons daily. Ensuring that your son/daughter has a quiet place to do work at home. Note: The best place may not be the bedroom! Encouraging your son/daughter to eat a healthy breakfast and drink plenty of fluids. Encouraging your son/daughter to get enough sleep.
Parental Support Keep in regular contract with their teachers. *Not overbooking holidays – IB students often need holidays to (a) rest and (b) catch up or revise. Asking your son/daughter about his/her day and classes. Ask to see a syllabus or other related course work.
How is a score reached? Examinations are graded against absolute standards (assessment criteria). Internal Assessments (IA) are also assessed against criteria. Scores from examinations and IA’s are combined and then scales against grade boundaries. Final subject score out of 7.
