An 8-week fully online preparation course for students retaking IBDP exams in November 2021. Your workshop leader will reach out to discover which course modules you'd most like to cover to make each course bespoke to your needs. You will receive course content, a log-in to the Learning Management System for video playback, and feel more prepared for your November exam by filling in gaps in your knowledge, improving your exam method and much more.

Following on from November's success

This course was run in November 2020, with students joining from 26 schools around the world. 50% of the students have shared with us their exam results, which showed an average of 1.3 grade improvement from their previous results.
How we are handling changes in the exam content

Beyond the format changes and dual examination routes, the IB has also adjusted the content being assessed in these exams, sometimes removing entire sections. Paper 3 is gone from science subjects, the Paper 2 comparative essay in Language A subjects is also gone, and every subject without removed components is seeing amendments to the exam content or how the content will be assessed. Rest assured that our tutors are prepared to teach across the entirety of the syllabus, are ready to adjust to these changes, and will use the course time to focus only on the content that you will be assessed on this year.

Elite IB’s May 2021 Exam Report ↗
It was so detailed and thorough. I especially liked that it was very personal, and we could ask specific questions, and our tutor would explain it clearly.

"A great solution that will aid IB schools in registering Diploma students for re-take examinations. With this bespoke model of subject/topic review and revisit, EIB have removed a school barrier to student re-take access."
Chris Green IB Consultant and Lead Educator IBO Certified Workshop leader
Our Retake Accelerated Programme provides exam-focused retake tuition with expert IB teachers, where students benefit from exceptional IB teaching from IB educators and small class sizes to really concentrate their final revision in the lead-up to their exams. The frequency of classes ensures students remain engaged through the course, with six hours weekly of very small class sizes and intense exam-focused learning exceeding in-school time allocations per subject, with the additional benefit of each student being able to shape their own learning. Our RAP tutors are all experienced IB teachers or examiners, able to guide students through an intense, focused eight-week programme of learning and revision, while ensuring each student's learning is tailored to their needs.

Choose from 6 key IB retake subjects this November

We have been supporting retake candidates for over 10 years, and have selected a programme of study which supports the subjects we are most often approached about. Whether or not you will be returning to school to bolster your studies, this is the ideal programme of study to improve your confidence and grades in key IB areas. Online classes are available during term time from September through to November. This gives students the flexibility they need to balance their other studies and responsibilities and create their own revision schedule.
