IB Student of the Month

Isha Aggarwal
This month we're happy to present Isha, who consistently does well on tests and exams. January is when many of our students will be writing end of term testing. As with all things, preparing for tests is a skill that can be practiced and learned. Isha always does well on tests by keeping her notes up to date, reviewing in ways that work for her and asking for help when needed. She also uses the time during the tests wisely, making sure she checks her answers before handing the paper in. Isha's very impressive IGCSE scores last year proved that she has mastered the art of taking exams.
