We have got to February without almost noticing and the School year continues to march on at an even faster rate for our students who are finishing Year 11. They have to start getting ready for an exciting step, one which could be very important for their future, their Baccalaureat, the BiBac®.
Our Year 11 students have already finished their IGCSE and International GCSE “Mocks”, their practice exams which allow them to not only consolidate their knowledge and skills but also to start thinking about how they can improve their marks in the final exams. The level of preparation is excellent and in order not to lose momentum and guarantee keeping all the best future options open, the School encourages them to start thinking about their choices and the subjects they are going to take, on the British Council BiBac® in Year 12 and Year 13.
The most important thing is to have all the necessary information to make the best possible choices; the ones which give them the greatest number of options in their future choice of university degree. That´s why, in order to supplement and build on the British Universities Fair last October and our own Universities Fair in February, we have also organised a series of seperate information lectures for students and parents.
Students have been given a general BiBac® information course as well as all the forms to be able to choose the different subjects and clubs available. And for parents, we have provided additional talks to those already organised during the Universities Fair. These provide information and help answer any questions they may have.
We are confident that this is a good time to think about all this, during the Half Term holiday break. And once they return, the School Advisory Team will work alongside families and students, on an individual basis, to help them make the best choices possible.
