Exam Advice from IB Survivors

We’re in the thick of exam season now. As we speak, IB students around the world are nearing the end of their first week of exams.

At Lanterna we remember all too clearly how it felt to be in exactly this position. But we also know all the good things that happened afterwards, after the good and the bad. So we decided to make use of our glorious hindsight to offer some advice, stories and (maybe) wisdom for any IB student looking for some reassurance around their own exams. Here we have advice from our three school presenters who’ve spent the past year visiting IB schools all over the world: Emily, Rachel and Isobel.
