    If i get a 37 in my year 1 annual exams and i study twice of how much i did for year2, is it possible for me to score a 42.

    Thats my target.

    Please share your views.

    It's impossible to say studying twice as much = achieving 42 points because it varies between people, but I'm sure if you work hard and keep focused, not over-working either, you can achieve your goal! The year 1 exams will most likely have not included much of the harder, HL material though. Just keep it in mind that it's not only the studying that gets you the points; the coursework in IB is key to you getting high final grades.

    Also, the 2nd year of IB is pretty much incomparable to the 1st year - coursework, university applications, deadlines and exams are a whole different ball game to the 1st year! My tip would be to sustain a solid work ethic throughout year 1 and 2 and just keep going - before you know it, the exams will arrive

    I got 33 at the end of my first year and 44 is my final grade.

    My secret: constantly doing past papers and making notes from them, relaxing and enjoying school life a bit more and rewriting notes in my spare time into coloured nice to look at easy to digest information sheets.

    Thank you so much all.
    This will only motivate me to work harder and get a remarkable result in my YEAR 2 IB.
