It is hard to believe we are already nearing the High School February Week Without Walls and, for Grade 12 students, the Oxford Study Courses revision week. As we have briefly mentioned in previous edition of the JAG Journal, OSC are a professional Diploma Program revision company who we are lucky to have working with all of our Grade 12 student for a complete week. It is of course mandatory and students have already received their personalised timetable for the five days. Please contact us with question, we have included the official OSC website for you to access to see the quality and experience they bring. https://osc-ib.com/
We would also like to remind you as Parents that as the mock exams for Diploma year 2 students comes closer (February 25th-March 1st) one of the most important things students need to be aware of is the idea of the IBO protocol for examinations, which is different and particular to that organization. In addition the importance of planning to be ready outside the exam room at least 15 minutes before every paper will be essential practice for the final exams in May. We are pleased to confirm that the Mock exams in February and final Diploma examinations in May will take place in the Administration Conference room.
Attached to this week’s notes is the timetable for the final IB Diploma exam dates for ISD students in May. Please encourage your children to print off copies and put them in conspicuous places in the house for easy reference and planning.
Most of the IB Diploma internal assessments are nearing completion and TOK as well as Extended Essay are in the process of being sent electronically to the IBO with teachers notes. To dispel some rumors that have been circulating, the internal due dates for students are non-negotiable and failure to adhere to them can result in students failing to meet the requirements of an IB Diploma. Please encourage your children to complete work as and when expected by teachers.
