IB AND BEYOND: University futures and how best to get there

Are your plans for university unclear at this point? Are you doing as well in your studies as you should be to maximize your options? 

Whether you are starting the IB Diploma Program next year or you are now midway, this event is for you and your parents.   

Melissa Jakobsen, founder of the Catalyse Learning Centre and an experienced mathematics and science tutor, will present her five rules for success in the IB. These include tips on course selection and how to get the best possible grades.

Focusing on IB diploma students heading to universities in Switzerland, the UK, Europe, and North America, Marilyn will present an overview of the information parents and students need to understand and consider while they navigate these decisions.
