IB TUTORING YEARS 11 – 12

Our IB tutoring program for Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12) is rigorous and rewarding for our students. In our IB Tutoring program, our curriculum is explicit and technically effective in supporting the teaching and learning approach as their IB school. Throughout our lessons, our methodical approach to each IB curriculum targets student weaknesses and provide efficient and effective solutions.

 

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? IB VS HSC

IB HSC
Must study six courses from different academic disciplines (English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Language). Can study a breadth of subjects with a minimum total of 10 units. Must include English as a compulsory subject.
Subjects are not scaled in the IB course; choosing the higher or standard level of the subject will not impact the final mark. Subject selection is crucial to obtaining the highest mark.
Students are awarded a maximum mark of 45. This is calculated as follows:

6 subjects x 7 marks each + 3 bonus points from the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and Extended Essay (EE).

Maximum mark is 99.95

The top 10 units of study (including English) will be counted towards this mark
