At Tribe Topper, we have been through it and we are here to lend a helping hand for revising the subjects of the IB MYP Exam with this study guide. 

The first thing to keep in mind when planning the revision is that everybody has their schedules. Just as your friend claims to be revising for 10 hours a day, doesn’t mean that you should be doing the same thing. For this, first, you should know yourself and then make a plan to suit your own needs. In this article, we will consider the best of two different levels of study plans for IB MYP Exam. Moreover, students get too stressed to know exactly how and when they can revise the subjects. Keeping this in mind, we’ve introduced two alternative plans described in the following way:

Plan A: IB Operation is for those who like making a more structured schedule to study.

Plan B: Take it Easy is for the ones who like to go with the flow.

So, let’s start on how to revise for IB MYP Exam…

Tip 1: Have a plan

First of all, you need to remind yourself what problems you are dealing with during IB exam preparations. Two years are worth remembering, so start by revising the topics that you need to revise. Find out the syllabus for each subject, look at the Syllabus Outline Page, and highlight topics or options that are relevant to you. Outline things to make a list of all the important topics that you’ll need to cover, in as much detail as you find helpful. You can use it as a checklist for the revision period, cross things off to cover them and make sure that you are working through it.

Tip 2: Work on how much time you have

Having track of the time you have to hand it in to organize everything properly and not run out of time. Potential revision time includes some major holidays like the Easter holiday, study leave, evenings, weekends, and anytime in school when you can structure the revision lessons. Remember, you are not expected to be working all the time, and you have to relax. As per the rule of thumb, 6 hours of revision per full working day is a good aim, but feel free to adjust this up or low to suit you as a learner.

Plan A:

  • Use the handy planner to work out how many hours you have from now till the exam date for revising.
  • Emphasize any time you would like to spend revising, and keep it running totally.
  • Don’t use the whole day for studying, as you would need to take regular breaks and leave some days too.

Plan B:

  • Think about how many weeks there are until exams start and make sure you are on the right pace to be ready for the exams.
  • There may be a few weeks when you will have more time than average, so be sure to use it wisely.

Tip 3: Divide the time between your subjects

Considering the plan, you made in tip 1 to work out for proportions of revision time as you calculated in tip 2. IBO suggests that teachers spend 5/39 of total teaching hours on each SL subject and 8/39 on HL subjects, using portions as you want.

Plan A:

·  Decide to plan time by the hour, 0 to be vaguer

·  Choose how much detail to include.

·  Get scheduling things as this can be done by hand, or digitally.

Plan B:

·  Every week, be sure that you are revising for every subject roughly in the proportions you described in tip 3. It is a good idea to spend some time planning this right at the start of the week.

·  On Monday morning, draft on a piece of paper with subjects you are revising and when so that you can get the proportions roughly right.

Tip 4: Make a schedule

Lastly, don’t be too hard on yourself. If you don’t stick to your schedule 100% – it’s inevitable that some things will take longer than usual. It’s ok to go back and make changes where you need. Stay flexible, and always maintain a sense of how much you need to cover from your syllabus.

Conclusion –

So, now that you have got everything on how you can revise for IB MYP Exams with this IB study guide. Start properly scheduling your week and rock the exams.
