Hi guys, I will start the IB program in 4-5 months from now. I have finished year 10 and I'm currently on holidays. I would like to prepare as much as I can before the IB, so does anyone have advice on how I should go about doing that? Are there any resources online that you could recommend for me to work off? Should I buy IB textbooks and work off them? I'm aiming to get an IB score of 40+ by the end of year 12, so any advice will be greatly appreciated :)

If you're planning to take math hl make sure to have a solid background and as much practice and preparation as possible since it's intense :)

Honestly you should just enjoy your life before you get into IB. There's plenty of time to study, and you'll have to study in all your breaks. Make the most out of this break so you'll start IB with a good spirit

i may be slightly biased but you should buy my book and read the first 4 chapters for sure! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0993418783

@yuuliaa yes I will be taking Maths HL, so when you say have a solid background I'm assuming that I should know everything that I've done in year 10 very well?

Yes. And maybe start looking at chapters in the hl book even thought it's simple it will give u an overview of what you'll need to know :)

I recommend downloading question banks especially if you take math HL its a great platform where a bunch past paper questions are compiled onto. You can order them according to topic so practicing is way easier. Other subjects also have question banks as well :) (this really helped me during my chem exams)

@MLA thank you. Just to be clear, question banks are on a paid platform right? And you choose whichever ones you would like and they will charge you annually?
